What may have skewed the pricing when you are looking online is that the newer townhouses in the Windemere & Gale Ranch neighborhoods are more expensive. Some of the older townhouses & duets in the Twin Creeks neighborhood are less expensive but still nice. Feel free to call me @ 925-570-4841 if you'd like to go over different neighborhoods & values.

The trend these days is smaller rather than larger. There are a lot of young professionals in the market right now looking for low maintenance homes...and they have the money and the buying power to bid prices up to get the home they want.
What is your price range?
Hope this helps. Call if you have any other questions, glad to help!
