Good areas in Fremont depend on your needs. Lot of times fresh home buyers do not necessarily know what to look for. A comprehensive home buyer presentation or introduction to home buying can provide you with specifics on what to look for. Based on your individual and family needs you can then fine tune your requirements for specific neighborhoods. Good schools are also relative term. State of California wants all schools to raise their API score above 800. Many Fremont schools are above 900. I do have a compilation of all recent API scores for schools and you are welcome to connect. Living in interior of Fremont and away from Freeway access may increase your commute time. Also based on your price range, commute needs and school and other criteria one can do mock searches on the internet to narrow down the neighborhood.
If you work all the way in SSF then why don't you look towards the penninsula? Your commute is I assume by car or BART? That looks to be 3 hours a day. It is a lot more expensive there, but equally good schools. It is also a little nicer there. More trees etc.
I love Fremont, but gas is not getting a cheaper.
South Fremont is a great option for many reasons. Many buyers look to S. Fremont for the good schools and location to South Bay. Ardenwood is another good option if you prefer the North Fremont area and it's location to the Dumbarton Bridge, 101, or 880. List what your main priorities are and then narrow down your areas from there. I hope this helps.

Welcome to the Residential market to purchase a single family house in Fremont! You are here at the right time, right place! Mortgage interest rates and prices both are historically low in last 2 decades, ever since I have been a full time Real Estate professional established in Fremont area.

Ardenwood is a great community with a diverse demographic and a lively community center. It's proximity to both the East and South Bay Areas and the Peninsula make it a highly desirable place to live. You might also consider the wonderful homes in the Warm Springs area, which has great schools and is also conveniently located to the south and east.
You might also consider some great homes along the Peninsula near Menlo Park and Palo Alto.
