Might be noticeable in the most southwestern part, although I never did. You can smell it in Milpitas.
So far it has not effected to resale or the quality of life. Great location and great school.
Talk to the people who live there and see what they say.
Also it has to do with meteorological change how and where the wind is blowing and whether you wish to close the windows...,
Price resale value? I am not aware of the differences.
"I have read online that some areas of warm springs/or almost all of it has a strong smell/odor from the Dixon dumping yard in Milpitas."
Primarily during the summer months, there is a smell (assumedly methane) from the Dixon Landing landfill when the right combination of heat, wind direction and one's proximity combine. I have personally come across this while viewing the newer attached housing bounded by Kato Road and Warm Springs Blvd.; however, I have never personally considered it to be overpowering.
"I am concerned about how this will effect the quality of life and also the resale potential later for houses in warm springs."
Given the seasonality and conditions required to cause the smell, I would rate this as a minor quality of life concern; as opposed to being next to a busy street 365 days a year, or perhaps a neighborhood being neglected by its owners or renters.
"Also are there any areas in warm springs that are not affected by this smell?"
Go West, young man! Actually, the further you go South on Warm Springs Blvd the less likely you come in contact with the issue.
I believe most area of Warm Springs will not smell the odor except area closer to Milpitas.
Come by and spend some time in different section of Warm Springs.
Prices of homes here has gone up over the years by buyers who have no issues with the resale value
or quality of life. Let me know if I can be of service. firstname.lastname@example.org
My wife and I lived in the southernmost part of Fremont (one street off of Scotts Creek) and rarely, if ever noticed that smell. I know you can smell it more as you get beyond Dixon Landing headed south on 880, but that never came into play in all our time there.
We loved it there and only moved when we had a chance to get into the Niles area.
The schools are very good, the access points to 680, 880 and 237 were great as well.
Hope that helps -- best of luck on your new home search!
