Pretty most of the neighborhoods in Pleasanton have held value. We have a very low inventory right now so home values have been on the slight increase.
One thing to consider is if a commute is in play. For example neighborhoods off 680 will be to your best advantage if you commute down to the South Bay.
If you live across town and will use 680 this can add 15mins to your commute.

Just something to think about.

There are several areas in Pleasanton that continuosly retain their value (apart from the 2006 explosion) and then appreciate.

Some neighborhoods that have retained their value and are now seeing a positive gain due to low inventory:
- Birdland
- Ponderosa
- Happy Valley
- Mission Park
- Pleasant Hill
- Pleasanton Valley
- Parkside
- The Gates
- Highland Oaks
- Country Fair
- Del Prado
- Vintage Hills
- Pleasanton Heights
- St. John Place
- Charter Oaks
- Carriage Gardens
- Bridle Creek
- Sycamore Heights
- The Preserve
- Moller Ranch
- Mohr Park Estates
- Laguna Oaks

There are a few main reasons why these neighborhoods are standing the test of time:
- Location
They are in close proximity to schools, freeway for commuters, and nature
- Builders
The builders of the homes in these areas took pride in their work, considered style of home, size of yards, and living space.
- Different styles of homes
- These neighborhoods include one story and multi-story homes so that it is open to more homebuyers when they do come on the market. These homes were built to be lived in and people usually have space to grow and that decreases their need to move.

Hi,

Pleasanton has been hit very hard with foreclosures and short sales. Homes have lost considerable.

We purchased our home in 2001 and it is at approximately the same value it was when we bought. so what ever realtor says pleasanton has not been hit hard doesnt know the market....

This is a good time to buy. Depending on what type of neighborhood your looking for, what features you prefer and your price point central Pleasanton is very nice, Birdland is very nice if you have children and would like to be able to walk to school.

The Jensen tracks off of Santa Rita are nice homes and may be a easier starting point.

It really depends on what you want to invest and what type of neighborhood your looking for.

Hi,
Your best bet is to look at neighborhoods that surround Pleasanton's great schools and over 80+ parks. Some of the more popular neighborhoods are Mohr Park, Del Prado, Kottinger Ranch, Birdland,Parkside and Stoneridge/ Muirwood. Let me know if you have a specific price range and I can break that down a little better. This is just an overall picturenof homes ranging from
$575,000-850,000.

I am here to help!
