Brentwood is still experiencing tight inventory levels of homes, and pretty much anything under $300,000 (if priced right) will be in contract within 7-10 days (if not sooner). The market did slow down right after the Feds announced the interest increase in June 2013. Buyers are still in the market place, but we are not having nearly the volume of offers received on our listings like we were experiencing November 2012 thru May 2013. With the interest rate increase, some buyers left the market due to affordability and/or they now qualify for a lower priced home vs. the price range they previously were shopping in. We are also experiencing less "all cash" buyers in the marketplace since the profit margins have changed and less properties are available to them.
With the raise of values this past 8 months, a lot of homeowners are not short sales anymore. The market still has short sales, but no where the volume we had last year. Majority of the homes sold on the market are traditional sales now. Mixed with a few REO properties and short sale properties.
They are calling this the "calm before the storm" - it is definitely a seller's market. Though rates have risen, it is still a great time to buy.... more
This property is located in a very nice subdivision called Tuscany. It is near the Highway 4 bypass, but don't think it will be an issue where it is located.
The property is currently pending in MLS and is listed as a Short sale

Great question. I would recommend you search the City of Brentwood Police department website.
They have a really cool crime mapping tool - you can search by types of crimes (burglary, auto theft, etc.) Brentwood has a few gated communities, but Deer Ridge is not one of them. Deer Ridge is a lovely community with a public golf course meandering through it. If you need assistance locating the gated communities (for families or 55 and older) please feel free to give me a call. (925) 766-3791. I am an area expert. Take care and happy house hounting!!... more
Hi, I am a local realtor and property manager in Brentwood. I have a home I manage on Diamond Spring Ln for almost three years now. It is a great, family style neighborhood and I have had no issues in that time at all. If you find something there, I would suggest you move on it.... more
Good Afternoon, The rental market in most of Eastern Contra Costa County, especially Brentwood, is very competitive. This is due to the number of individuals needing housing since they lost their homes in a foreclosure action. That is not to say there is nothing available, it means you need to work with a realtor to find something that will suit your needs. Many rentals that come on the MLS are gone the first day they are posted. In my case I just placed a family in a rental, but I was able to secure it due to the fact that the realtor on the other side of the transaction was a friend and knows I screen potential clients to make sure they are a good fit. So it is the old phrase "it is who you know, that gets you the best deal." If you need assistance, I would be happy to help. Please click through to my website for information on the Brentwood Community, my contact information and you can start there. Regards!... more
Here on Trulia, you can type an address of a property you know about in the area you're looking for. When it comes up, you will also see a tab that says "recently sold" properties which will give you addrress and configuration. The same thiing can be said of Zillow. But these are quick online resources that may not give you as complete a picture as you may want.
Depending on the reason for your search, there are other resources, like your Realtor. If you're looking for properties to use as comps for property you are about to buy or sell, or if you are looking for comps to use for applying for property tax reassessment, your best bet is a realtor who can discuss marketability and market value.
Good luck.... more
Can you pare that down a little? There were 208 sales in that time period. Are you looking for a specific home or median price, or high & low, or ?
I'm happy to provide the statistic if you can be a little more specific about what you are looking for.... more
