The rental market is difficult in the Tri-Valley area (Danville, San Ramon, Dublin, Pleasanton & Livermore). You can't go "wrong" anywhere in the Tri-Valley area. Check API scores of schools in Livermore to make sure, but otherwise you can't go wrong. BART trains are available to SF from Dublin and Pleasanton. Mountain VIew would require a commute along Interstate 680 to 237. Pleasanton is the closest community to Mountain View in the Tri-Valley. Many people working in the Silicon Valley would consider Pleasanton to be the furthest north that they would go.... more

This is a real estate forum, however your question is an insurance specific. The responses you will receive here will not be reliable including mine. Insurance companies generally rely on a software program to determine approximate cost of replacement. I can tell you that it will be roughly around $180-$200 per square foot but ideally it depends on the specific house. If you need to reach out to a good honest insurance agent, call me and I will make an introduction to a great local insurance agent.
Generally it can take anywhere from two to seven years; much will depend on the circumstances that led to the short sale, the type of loan, downpayment amount, current income, credit, debt, etc.; for a personalized answer visit with any licensed loan officer....... more
Seems like you have done your homework and know the objections there are already. Be convinced that those are enough reasons that some people object to, making the interest for these neighborhoods somewhat limited. Note that there are bunch of people living in those communities and everything is just fine.
It boils down to your personal preferences and you need to know that not everyone would want to buy there now and not everyone would want to buy there when you get ready to sell as a buyer. You need to have a right expectation when buying and also when selling and setting your list price accordingly.
Go for it…buy anywhere in Pleasanton and you cannot go wrong, just make sure to do you due diligence and perform all inspections as you should with any other property.
Good luck….let me know if I can help.... more

Her cell is usually the best. From what I jnow after selling real estate for 29 years is you exceed the maximum loan limits for a government insured loan however there may be a hybrid or specialized loan program available to you. My question is do you have an established banking relationship with a bank like First Republic, perhaps Union Bank or if you have a brokersge account with Dean Whitter they perhaps could hive you such a loan as long as they can securitize your assets in their brokerage. GIVE MARI a Call and let me know if she was able to help you find a loan... more

Hello akqwana, You will need 20% down, minimum 660 fico score and 24 months from a short sale to qualify at the earliest. At 3 years from a short sale you may qualify with a minimum 580 fico score and as low as half percent down payment program.
I specialize in Under 640 Fico Score Loans and offer credit repair at no cost to raise fico scores to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary. It only takes a few dozen questions to qualify you in minutes and go over timeframes, rates and terms. Here are some links to study and consider that I offer.

If using the CAR-RPA we are NOT allowed to tell you however if an agent has direct knowledge and is aware they must tell you nut to be honest even after having these conversations during my buyer inteeview many decide they don't really want to know necause they would then be forced to disclose when they sell ao moat have told me they didn't search or don't really want to know for that reason alone but its my job as their agent to make them aware of hiw and where to find this kind ofn information especially if they have kids buts its their chiice not mine as their agent... more
