Dublin has a lot going for it. I can't tell from your post whether you are focusing on cash flow or flipping potential - as an investor, it's important to know what your strategy is. Dublin is a nice central location, which is important to renters who commute to S.F. or the south bay.

Good luck, and let me know if I can help you in any way.

Dublin is a wonderful area located at the hub of the San Ramon and Livermore Valleys. Many people can find affordable homes, quality schools and easy access to Not only Oakland and San Fran. via BART the San Jose and the rest of the tech valley. Access to wonderful amenites and other close by towns provides renters and owners fantastic quality of life. As such the real estate is still in high demand there.

Hey John:

Yes, Dublin are is good for rentals and main driving force is closeness to BART. Based on your down payment I can calculate your cash flow based on expenses and once the property is paid off, you have nice monthly cash coming to you.

You have good understanding of Cash flow. Many buyers/investors just look for appreciation. Looking for just appreciation is pure speculation. However, if you purchase a property with good cash flow (income-expense = profit) then you can own the property for a long term and someone else will pay for it until its paid off or sold. Historically RE has appreciated and if your cash flow investment appreciates that is the real thick cream on the cash flow income. So go back to basics and invest in POSITIVE cash flow properties.
