I wish I could help or even offer a good piece of advice but I'm in the same boat as you are. The rental I'm in in South Livermore has been sold and I've got 3 weeks until I have to vacate. The inventory is so low and there's a lot of greedy people out there making an easy $$s on our situation. If I find a magic answer, though, I'll keep you in mind. Best of luck to you. ... more

Joseph you may want to email or call some local agents in your area. They can easily pull the DOM from the MLS for your area.

This home is back on market - buyer's loan did not go through, according to listing agent notes on mls. Asking price is $629,000, BUT it's a short sale, so that does not necessarily mean you can get it for that price, as the bank(s) have to sign off on it.

The home is very nice, good location within The Grove. I live right down the street from it.

If you're interested in seeing it, give me a call!

There is no straight answer to your question. Each town will have developments and pockets with larger lots sizes, your Realtos will be able to point these out for you. What would you like to do with this lot? Does the entire lot have to be useable? Flat? What home amenities are you looking for? Each community is going to offer a unique living style, what is going to be the most cohesive and complimenery with your own?

As already stated, Pleasanton, Danville, Alamo, and San Ramon would take some bargain hunting to fine something under a million that isn’t a shack or 20 years behind the times. But it does exist. Keep in mind, these communites are very sought after thus appreciate well and will prove this in the resale vaule. Livermore would be attainable and you would get a little more for your money, although you will be further East in the valley. With a great new downtown, busteling wine industry, and tons of recreational parks don’t count Livermore out. Check out for some of the going-on's

Going over the hill to Tracy, Brentwood, Discovery Bay, or Oakley would be an option. But do remember, it’s cheaper out there because the demand is less and there is much more inventory; be weary of your resale value. When talking about an investment, this may not be the best choice to put your money. Plus the convenience factor is gone. Try commuting those 17 extra miles on a one-lane road with hundreds of thousands of other motorist - not fun and very time consuming.

If a commute is a factor, keep your quality of life and enjoy that half acre by staying in the Tri-Valley -- it will prove to be a much better buy for your time and money. If you are looking to get the most amenities for your dollar and resale nor commute is factor do the give the communities around Brentwood and even Tracy a look. Take your time explore each community and what it can offer to your life style. Don’t get caught up concentrating on lot size, you will find the right property eventually no matter where you are looking… it might just take more time in the more affluent areas. Persoanlly, I would concentrate on Livermore and Pleasanton -- but I am baised!

Good Luck!
