Bottom line if you can get into a property now, compared to throwing away money on rent you are in a much better position. Tax benefits, refinancing options, rent your new home, use the home as a trading piece, you definitely have more advantages of being a home owner than a renter. If you are paying the same as a mortgage and have the means to get into a home I say go for it, but do your research. I have articles on my website that might help a lot of your answers.

Hi David,

Living near BART is great for commuters who work near the BART route and don't mind the occasional distant rumble of a BART train passing by. If you compare the development around Berryessa to the areas around BART stations at Daly City, Balboa Park, and Glen Park, you will find that many homeowners consider it a selling point to be able to walk to BART. Of course, if the house is right next to a BART line, you should definitely listen for the effects to see if it's acceptable.

On a side note, if you're shopping for a KB Home, be aware of the upgrades in the model homes that are not included in the base home. There's a KB Home showroom where you can pick out your upgrades and it's easy to spend a lot. You can weigh the pros and cons of upgrading through the building vs. doing it later on.

You can examine San Jose Berryessa home values at

In particular look at sales price vs. list price
You can see that purchase offers are very strong.

When looking at a neighborhood, a monthly graph can be very misleading since there are few sales. To get a better idea of recent trends you can look at monthly sales of cities or even counties. San Jose would be a good city to look at

Again looking at sales price vs. list price but this time monthly
You can see that purchase offers are still very strong even though prices have risen.

Predicting even the near term future can be challenging. Being involved with many buyers, sellers, and real estate agents gives a better view than just statistics. Work with an experienced real estate agent. Give me a call and we can chat.

krishhomes13 aka rkforhome:

I suggest you hire an agent to do a lot of this looking for you. As you can see from my post, I ;m not afraid to actually tell you what you want to know about an area.

Agents are not allowed to steer, which means guide you to places thye want you to see or buy based upon their own prejudices and assumptions about you based upon your race or ethnicity. Agents are supposed to answer fully and honestly any question you ask. But some agents are so afraid of being told by some regulator that they are steering, that they forget the difference between working from their assumptions/prejudices and simply answering question a client has. The latter is our fiduciary duty to the client.

If you would like an agent who understands hi fiduciary duties and is not afraid ot perform them on your behalf, please give me a call. 408-639-0211 or an email at As you might see already, I take a hands on approach to making you happy.

Mitchell Pearce,

Annette Lawrence answered:
You do not state that you actually have an interest in buying this house.
That makes the conversation irrelevant.
However, if you do have interest, and are a serious buyer, and have the resources to complete a purchase, you should submit a purchase offer at the value you believe the home is worth to you.
The list price is just the "Hello" in the process, the beginning of the conversation.
If you are serious, do what serious people do.
1. Support your offer with data.
2. Submit your offer with authority
3. Negotiate to result you want.

Best of success,

The Medford Team answered:
If it's a legitimate ad for a rental, there will be a link in the listing that will take you to the contact information. Look for the link "Provided by" - click on that and it will take you to the listing. No one here at Trulia has any information other than what you can get yourself directly from the listing. ... more

I'm not sure how you contacted the person offering the home for rent. I see Trulia displaying what appears to be a small property management company as the source of the listing, but their website isn't useful to find the property. (Two websites one registered in 2007 with Virginia address redirected to the other which was registered in 2009 with a Colorado address, but the name of the registered owner NARPM corresponds to an property manager association whose own website was registered in 1999 with a Texas address).

The property was recently sold (about 1 month ago). The pictures for the rental appear to be taken when the property was for sale but not by the same photographer. The rental pictures were likely taken with a cell phone camera.

There may be a new owner who does intend to rent it out but it sure sounds like you were connected to a scam.

Every area is different, Here in Virginia Beach we need more inventory so it would be a great time to list. The next 2 weeks everywhere will likely be slow. But it also takes a week or 2 for me to get the marketing running in full force. My suggestion is get it listed (interest rates have changed the off season schedule) ... more
