I used to live in the area. All I can say is that the area is nice and is a good place to raise kids. Home price is very high, though, although you may be used to it since you live in NY. I would suggest that you pick up the phone and call a local realtor to assist you. ... more

Matthew Smith answered:
You may need more than permits if the land use zoning is restricted to single-family use. Rezoning may be necessary to make the new unit legal. In many areas, parking is at a premium and a secure garage adds significant value to a property. If there is off-street parking still available for two units, the loss of the garage won't as big a loss. Homes with no parking other than on the street are harder to sell. ... more

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

Mdewaikar, The precise tax rates is difficult to pine point because it can vary depending on the specific location, community, how new the development is as well as any other assessments. To get specific/precise tax details for a home in Contra Costa County and Alameda county, you can go to their tax assessors website:

For Contra Costa county, you can go to:

For Alameda County, you can go to:

Go to Account lookup or Lookup Taxes. You will find the actual tax bill which breaks down what is being charged and for what reason.

Good luck, Al Pacheco

Maybe some time in the distant future, however I don't foresee anything in the near future.

So long as we keep seeing startups in the Bay Area and Venture Capitalist investing in those companies, growth should be pretty constant.

I would even venture to say even more growth in Oakland and surrounding areas is on the horizon as SF's prices are way out of control right now.

Our housing market is closely pegged to the tech and startup environment we live in. If you watch what they are doing you will have a strong Idea of what is to come in our housing market.

I hope this helps

There is no easy way to do this ... you have to input each address into the following link to see which school it goes to:

You can it narrow down by using the map search feature on sites like Trulia or HotPads to locate rentals in the general area, but to confirm each address to a specific school will still be labor intensive. ... more

Hi Mia,

Trulia is a great resource to look for rentals in the area. Another suggestion is craigslist.

Tri-Valley has excellent schools! Most people move here from other parts of the bay especially for the school district. You can take the bart and reach San Francisco is just around 40 mins. Your biggest challenge will be the commute to Mountain View but that also depends on the time. If you don't have flexible hours then I would seriously consider Fremont. ... more
