Help the community by answering this question:


As others have stated, this is a townhouse in east Castro Valley, a nice, desirable area. As such, it has an HOA and association fees of $274 per month. Although this may seem reasonable, you still need to do your homework on the HOA, paying particular attention to the financial condition of the complex. The level of reserve funds and cash flow for maintenance and repair must be sufficient. If there are distressed (or absent) owners who are delinquent in paying their fees, the HOA may not have enough money to maintain the complex, often resulting in unplanned supplemental assessments on the remaining owners.

I can help you learn how to properly assess these types of issues, if you are open to considering a condo, townhouse or PUD with an HOA. Please feel free to contact me or call me at (510) 828-2732. I would be happy to help.

Hi Amanda,

It is a townhouse in Palomares Hills. It is an excellent area of Castro Valley and most of these townhomes have very nice views. Palomares hills is close to 580 freeway and Jensen Ranch school which is in Palomares Hills is an excellent school. The area is very desirable and there are very few homes on the market at this time. When a new listing comes on the market, it sells quickly usually with multiple offers.

Another good area for you to consider is Five Canyons. The school for Five Canyons is Independent Elementary which is also very good. I have sold many homes in both these areas and if you need any more information about the neighborhoods, you can call me at 510-279-9580 or go to my website at
