Most people choose a home by the neighborhood it is in. Have you driven the neighborhoods? Which community reminds you most of where you or your spouse grew up?
These, and many other questions are things I help my clients sort through. I have lived in just about every part of the east bay, and have helped people buy just abour everywhere here. With my help, they find the right place for them....not the right place necessarily for me. Do you see the difference? My skill is in helping people identify the area that is right for them, and in not pointing them to the place I prefer. There are pros and cons of every community, and I will point out both to you to help you make the decisions that are right for you.
Dublin and Livermore are both very good areas to live in, but it depends on where you work and how far you want to be.
Dublin is very centrally located close to 580 and 680 freeways. There are two BART stations in Dublin and one in Pleasanton which is so close to Dublin. There are so many new home developments in Dublin and more coming up. I have recently registered many buyers in the new developments. It is much easier for a buyer to purchase a new home verses a resale since the competition is less.If you do go to new developments, make sure you take an agent with you to register you so they cn get you the inside scoop of whether they can negotiate the price, terms, options etc.
Livermore is also very competitive when it comes to resale homes. I think some areas in Livermore are too far and the commute is more than Dublin.
You should get an agent to help you and discuss the pros and cons of each area.

Great question. Livermore was just written up in SF Gate as one of the top 10 cities to live in. Dublin on the other hand has been one of the hottest cities in the Tri Valley. Either way you go I think both are great choices. Bottom line is what is important to you? Schools, community, weather, commute... Livermore will offer amenities Dublin does not and same with amenities Dublin has. If you would like more information on the areas, please let us know. We have been in the Tri Valley for over 30 years and selling real estate just as long. Send us an email if you have questions or you can always call us too.
