But I think, in order to compete with East side new homes, Schaefer Ranch provides more value to the houses (better quality and more upgraded). So for no risk in the future, go east. West side is so uncertain in the future since a certain type of population is now moving out of that area.
Lots of good information on this thread. Hope this all helps.
Happy house hunting!
We spent 3 weekends in those two subdivisions and so far. Our concerns for Positano is the traffic, in particular, future traffic after the Fallon Village is all built out. I have to go to Bernal Ave in Pleasanton to take my company's bus daily. It seems it's easier and faster to get to Bernal from where Schaefer Ranch is. On the flip side, the elementary school and middle school where Schaefer Ranch residents go seem to have lower APIs than those for Dublin Ranch/Positano area. Any comments on the traffic, schools, and future property appreciation/hold value potentials of those two subs? Thanks!

Dublin is a great choice. I would contact the top agent in the area to best answer your question. Tyler Moxley can help you at http://www.MoxleyTeam.com.
