Other areas in the Hayward Hills also offer great houses with fantastic Bay and hill views without the HOA fee that Stonebrae requires.
I would be delighted to help you to find the house that fits your needs.
I have sold several homes in the Stonebrae and Bailey Ranch areas (just next to Stonebrae). I had sold one house in Stonebrae for $845K and that same model is now selling for $725K. Prices have come down in Stonebrae as with all areas, but it is still a very desirable area. There is a new school there and the golf course is beautiful. There are 4 different builders in Stonebrae.
I would be very happy to help you with a home in Stonebrae and neighboring areas. For my Stonebrae buyer, I had negotiated with the builder and I was able to get a huge discount on their asking price along with some free upgrades I would be happy to do the same for you.
Would you also like to consider Castro Valley (Five Canyons)? Are schools important to you? Castro Valley schools are excellent. Please call me at 925-425-9491 and I can discuss details on all these neighborhoods since these areas of Hayward and Castro Valley are my specialty.
