Hi Bianca,

I've sold homes in San Ramon for 15 years and have not come across any below market rate homes. There are below market rate homes in nearby cities however including Dublin and Danville. In fact, Danville has a new development on the westside close to San Ramon which has BMR properties. Danville is in the same school districst as San Ramon so the schools there are highly rated. Hope this is helpful.

Hi Bianca,

There are quite a few BMR homes in San Ramon. Are you looking for BMR or just homes that priced below market such as Short Sales/ REO properties.

Thanks for the info. It looks like those are all rentals.

San Ramon did have some brand new single family BMR homes from builder Shapell in the Windemere area several years back when the housing market was really hot. There were only a few units available & they had a lottery for it. My co-worker was very lucky to be able to get 1 of those. Unfortunately I haven't seen any since then. I have also been looking for BMR homes in San Ramon.

Hi Mungo,
Not sure if you have investigated fully BMR guidelines but each city has different criteria for qualifications. Guidelines are posted on city websites including forms for submission to qualify.

Prices in San Ramon and surrounding areas have leveled off in the past 2 months and there are some good opportunities for buyers at this time and you just have to be persistent.

Let me know if I could be of any help.

The city of San Ramon does not require builders to provide below market rate homes - homes that are discounted so that low to moderate income buyers can purchase them.

However - there are homes in San Ramon that are more affordable than you may think. They may not be single family homes, but there are some large condos and townhomes available.

If you really want to live her - find a hungry agent that is willing to work hard for you!

None in San Ramon to the best of my knowledge but there are some in Danville (not new, only re-sales) that come available from time to time. Please contact me if you would like more details.

Hi Blanca,

As far as I know the city of San Ramon does not have BMR homes for sale. Dublin does. Here is a link for more information.
