The warm springs run under this neighborhood from the hills behind 680.
and lost of crawl spaces are always damp and also hold water at times.
Also the fault line is along 680 including landslide area.
Let me tell you, the smell is getting worse. The real estate agent is either lying or he doesn't come here.
The smell isn't there every day, but it is occurring more frequently. As I'm writing this, I'm considering leaving ealry because the smell is so bad, it's entering the office building. I'm going to ask our company owner to consider moving our office.
I most definitely will NOT be looking at properties in this area!
I live on the north part (mission and warm springs). It is Not present there. You can use
the backyard without apprehension.
It may be more as you go down toward dixon landing road and further south into milpitas.
But as very little to none as you move up. It won't be factor to consider or worry about as you cross
I don't think it would be a disclosure item, but if it got worse, it might be a concern. If you live closer to Milpitas that might be a different story.
I live in the North Warm Springs area (Mission Blvd @ Warm Springs) and I do not notice any smell. However, I do notice the smell while in Milpitas (Dixon Landing area) and a little bit in South Warm Springs (Scott Creek / Kato / KB Home) area.
I am a broker with Prudential in Warm Springs. I have not heard about the smell you are asking about from any of my clients. I drive in that neighborhood at various times of the day and I have never felt it myself.
With regard to market conditions, Warm Springs is highly sort after due to intrinsic value associated with great schools next to Mission in Fremont and easy commute to 237 corridor. Great place to buy and send me a mail should you have any questions.
Alviso is on the southern end of the bay. Before you get to Alviso there is an old landfill that is now being developed. It could be you heard something about that but I have not had any complaints about odors in Warm Springs.
