BART will not have an effect on the homes in this area. BART is fairly quiet and safe. Mission has great schools as well.
More inventory? We are seeing more home coming on the market over the past few days and weeks, however, we really don't know. It is normal to see more inventory as we get closer to summer.
Why wait, if you see the right house - make an offer. If you don't see the right house - keep looking. It's a great time to buy now and in the future.
Keep in mind that as far as schools are concerned, opinions are often subjective and what may be good for one is not necessarily the case for another--consider a visit to the district(s), ask for a tour of the facilities, speak to the principals, teachers, etc., ask all your questions and then make your determination--where will your comfort level best be reached.... more
The home prices will not be effected any more than they already are, since the railroad tracks are already there. The only change is the addition to the BART tracks. BART is not that noisey and now that Washington Blvd. goes over the tracks, trains will no longer need to blow their horns and no noisey crossing bells.
So I feel there would be no additonal impact in values from recent sales on Driscoll. However, home prices that do not back to tracks are always slightly higher due to the noise & safety factor.
Hope this helps,
There is no talk about Gomes elementary being moved out of Mission San Jose attendence area. I called to school recently to confirm and they told me the last time this was done was 6 years ago, but ther has been no talk about it happening again.
I would still advice you to call the school district and confirm for yourself. Keep in mind that even if there is no talk now, this is something that can happen with any school at any time. Plus you may want to find out if there is a waiting list for the children since most of the schools in Fremont (especially the good ones) have a waiting list.

Dear Chess Player:
MSJ - Fremont - Despite journalist doom and gloom and national commentary to state otherwise NO - Fremont Mission San Jose is as strong as every with nearly little to show for Mortgage Meltdown.
In fact I'd venture to say that properties in this area still move swift on the market with numbers which go pending are strong, in fact stronger then any one expected.
Currently interest rates are very attractive, and while others circle the wagons in hopes of seeing the MSJ area falter with values wise people are aggresively out there negotiating the strongest offers they can to possess a home in this wonderful area.
If we see prices edge lower, do you belive that the projected increase in interest will make it a better time to wait, obviously not - housing in the Mission would have to SLUMP significantly to off set any increase in interest.
Are you sure it is the agent driving the pricing? It is unusual to hear a situation where the seller wants to set a reasonable price and the agent refuses to do so. After all, the agent only gets paid IF the listing sells.
In reality, the seller sets the price of the home, not the listing agent. If the seller tells his agent to reduce the price, then the listing agent is obligated to do so. If the agent won't do it, then the seller should contact the agent's broker (since the listing is legally with the broker). If all else fails, the seller should consider changing agents.... more
Hi Chess Player,
Please follow the thread below:
According to this link I don't see the Mission area as a declining market. My office is in the Mission area and I still see multiple offers with over asking price on many homes in the Mission area.
