Ardenwood homes have always commanded attention, Primarily due to the schools and the closed community that fosters a very healthy neighborliness . It has a little bit of everything and choices of floor plans that command attention. These homes were built by KB homes and are designed for more functionality versus luxury. Prices have gone higher at an average of 35% -$40% since 2008.

A lot more Buyers are looking to buy into this community , especially with two parks, proximity to the Freeway, Schools, and and the friendly neighbors.
The demography is mixed and with average incomes over$120,000 annul, a leading contributing factor to the demand for housing in ardenwood . There are new homes being built by KB homes across Peralta road , that used to be open fields.

Ardenwood area is a place where one can settle down for a few years, save money and grow their home equity then move on to more luxury homes after.

Low. Like any suburb. It's not a very industrial area. It's mostly commercial and residential.

The smell that I smell is the one that comes from the evaporation of the marsh area. It's very sour, like a dirty diaper, and happens about 2 to 3 times per week, especially after a rainy day. I've driven by the dump and that smells too (of course), but it's not that same "Fremont" smell that I detect all the way up to Mowry. As for any real estate people, of course they don't smell anything, that would effect their livelihood. ... more

Brad,

I think the older established areas like Walnut Knolls, Starlite Hills, etc., are less affected by the train noise than say the new KB and Robson developments because they are literally 30-200 yards away from the tracks. I help manage a little league team here in Warm Springs and have children in the local schools and I can tell you we vaguely here the train horn in the mornings and afternoons, but that's about it. Also as a Realtor and home owner in the area the train, freeway, and busy intersection affect resale value so this is something to be mindful of. The good news is there are several homes in the area that are in good locations so you don't have to worry about selection being a problem.

Thank you,
Bobby Nijjar

Whoa there Mr. Dutra and all those who want this. You forgot about the people who actually live in Warm Springs, Weibel, Mission San Jose and ANYONE who must run the Gaunlet of I 680 and I880 on a daily basis! Can you imagine adding 10,000 cars to the mix today. I do not wish to be a prisoner in my home, prevented from shopping, or have to stay at work so I don't have to battle bumper to bumper traffic to get home

This reality cannot be brushed off as some unimportant cost. This is a selfish point of view for those who see the stadium as a pancea to our current financial woes. This is an issue for anyone since you will be giving up your quiet neighborhood for nothing. Look at all of the research and you will see that NO STADIUM HAS EVER PRODUCED A NET ECONOMIC BENEFIT FOR THE CITY THAT HOSTS IT. This is a wealth transfer program from the community into the players and Lew Wolf's (A's owner) wallet. Even the A's admit in the last proposal that it would cost the city $1,000,000 per year (total income - total expenses). Bear in mind that this is the fox's interpretation of the cost to guard the hen house. You know that it is far from the actual costs

Check Mr. Dutra's background for conflicts of interest. He and his extended family/business connections have the potential to gain from this deal. I could be off base, but if relevant, I would expect a realtor to provide this forum with a disclosure about any conflicts of interest before a potentially conflicted answer is given.

Hmmm, horrendous traffic, no net economic benefits to residents, crime, litter, noise, drained police. That sure sounds like a great deal to me. Is this really going to be good for home prices close to the stadium, you make up your own mind. For more information on this issue, please go to fremontcitizensnetwork.com

Thanks for all your nice comments about Fremont, and my sister just called me that she got this wonderful house at Fremont!!! http://www.realtor.com/search/listingdetail.aspx?ctid=75516&ml=3&mnp=46&typ=1&sid=8dc1321b03ff4408a75337190f336b3c&lid=1098330744&lsn=4&srcnt=8

This house is the only house my mom like in Fremont, and of course my sister also likes, so they just bought it. When we visit our other sister living at Mission View Estate that weekend when my son going to UC Berkeley OHP (Overnight Host Program), she decided that we should buy a home at Fremont, when she heard of our buying a condo at Berkeley http://berkeleyhousing.blogspot.com/ because Fremont has a nice convenient BART station that can go to Downtown Berkeley BART easily with $8.10 round trip each day. In fact, we actually took our son to ride the BART over to Berkeley, and the parking only $1 a day at BART.

It is about 6 miles from Mission View Estate, but we were told that there is going to be a new BART station down at Washington Ave, so that would be much closer, great! We also checked the Mission San Jose High School, very nice and close.

Since so many relatives, friends and Berkeley alumni living at Fremont, we got lots of parties and dinners. We like this Japanese BBQ at Lion City very much, and of course, the World Buffet, and there was a Chinese restaurant open till 3am just good to catch after tour San Francisco.

We went to check the Fishman's Walf and many other places in San Francisco that I can still review over this wonderful EveryScape. http://www.everyscape.com/sanfrancisco-ca.us.aspx

So, next time see me in Little Taipei at Fremont CA, no need to be surprised. When I need to fly over to see my son going to UC Berkeley, I would just go to Fremont my sister's new home ... http://www.realtor.com/search/listingdetail.aspx?ctid=75516&ml=3&mnp=46&typ=1&sid=8dc1321b03ff4408a75337190f336b3c&lid=1098330744&lsn=4&srcnt=8
