The Medford Team answered:
They make plenty of sense for those who've already bought and are enjoying living there. As long as they are classified as single family homes by the county, their pricing will remain higher than condos, even if they are really designated as a part of a PUD (Planned Unit Development). They are similar to condos in that they have HOA fees and conjoined features, such as driveways, etc. They are like single family homes in that they are not touching surrounding homes. If you are looking for a decent yard, then a traditional detached single family home would be better for you. If you are OK with condo/townhouse-like surroundings, then you will be fine. ... more

Hi Daniel, Yes some builders has quick move ins since they raised price very quickly, now we have more inventory in the market also, comparing to 8 weeks ago. I have talked to a builder today They have ZERO inventory, still they have waiting list and they are releasing most probably next week a few homes. According to the manger builder may probably increase the price for this release also.
As you know a few weeks ago to get a home in Dublin buyers were paying 10K to 50 K above listing price. some sellers were looking offers with out appraisal contingency only. Now it is not like that, even if some one pays around listed price they can get a home. Still interest rates are low, if any one want to buy still there are lots of properties to choose.

What a great question. The answer may depend on the intended use of the information. All three items can be a good indication of home price trends and values.
Although the mean and median can be effective indicators of the market they are not accurate in determining homes values.
The most accurate way to determine the value of a property tends to be the price per square foot method. The price per square foot method is used by appraisers when determining the appraised value of a home. Appraisers commonly use six sold comparable home sales of relative livable sq. footage and lot sq. footage within close distance to the home.
I hope this helps.

You know, that's a great question and the answer is that it really depends on what you and your family prefer. These two developments are quite different as is the price difference! Sorrento is a really large community with a mix of housing (large homes, condos/townhomes and more luxurious amenities, more modern design and newer & more efficient construction materials. Of course, new also costs more which also includes a much higher monthly HOA expense. This is not a bad thing of course, it really all depends what you and your family's needs and wants are.

The Cottages are really nice too, and even though they are newer the price all depends on the situation of the seller and the condition of the unit. Home designs are quite different than homes at Sorrento and it is really a matter of personal taste and what you're looking for. While the condo/townhome availability in Dublin is picking up in 2012, there are still not many resale listings for larger condo units.

I'd be more than happy to help with your search and answering any questions that you might have. Feel free to contact me & make a consultation appointment.

Have a fantastic day!

No one ever knows exactly where the bottom is, so you just have to make your best guess. It looks pretty good right now and loan rates are amazingly low, which keeps payments low. I have an excellent, better than a model townhome/condo for sale at Siena at Sorrento priced at $628,998 which is an exceptional value, any way you look at it. The home has a 4 + car garage, 2484 square feet, 3 bedrooms, a loft, 2 1/2 baths, SS GE Monogram kitchen appliances, and every upgrade possible. They paid $800,000 only 4 years ago and the house is still in perfect condition! It is an end unit with 2 terraces, so if feels like a single family home. Come by my open house for a look: 4513 Mirano Ct., Dublin. Sunday 1:30 to 4:30. ... more

Newsprint is no longer a cost effective means of advertising and selling a listing. Over time it can an effective way to maintain a "big budget" Brokerage's visibility in a community, but it has little to do with selling a specific house. If you want to sell a house, use the internet. That's where the home buyers are now. During your next open house, ask your visitors how they found out about the house. They will tell you all you need to know. ... more

Erica Starkey answered:
For the money I would say look at resale homes. New homes are priced aggressively because they expect to make money on upgrades that they are no longer offering. There are still deals to be had in resale and you migh find something you like better. Not to mention interest rates are really low right now and if you are on a waiting list for a number of moths that may change. As always take a Realtor to represent your interests!

Dublin is about 10% lower than San Ramon. $700 is close to a fair price. In San Ramon, it is probably selling for low $700. So, may be mid to high $600 is what you shall aim for. Try if you can get some upgrade or find a friend who is a Realtor to represent you. He shall get about 3% as commission from builder and you can give him $5000 and keep the rest. It shall be enough for you to build your back yard. ... more

From what I have seen appraisers have to take into account a declining market factor, or i believe they still do.

Appraisal rules have become even tighter with the new HVCC system of ordering appraisals. I can put you in contact with a qualified apprasier if you would like a second appraisal.

Does the extra 12k affect the loan? I would be happy to give you my professional guidance on loan programs and hopefully earn your business.

Tom Lyons answered:
Yes. You can estimate real estate trends by what happens in the stock market. Real estate pros have been doing it for years. Basically, when the stock market loses value there is less money for home buyers to use for down payments to buy houses. Historically, when stock market prices crash, the real estate market suffers .... usually 6 months down the road. Current stock prices have always been a good indicator as to what will happen to local real estate ... 6-9 months down the road.
Check out my websites for more info.

I remember this property. It has been on market for a while. It is weird that on one else gives a more reasonable offer. Maybe it has some extensive damage inside by a outraged owner.

Eventually yes, that house is on a dinky lot for a place that size.

High end resets are kicking up and the foreclosure flood on these types of properties are beginning.

Rouriel Noubini answered:
If you have to purchase a house now, I may hire a agent. Now, I can wait. Without a agent, I still can low ball on REO/short sales, plus get 3% credit back for buy agent fee. I am very patient now. I can wait for 6 months or 12 monts.

For this one, I will low ball at $750k. It will be $730k after 3% credit back. With this price, it will provide some cushion for further 5%-10% market deterioration. If the same house sold below $600k, that will be really really surprise me. If the expected does happen, who will pay 2x or even 3x for houses in Pleasanton, in Fremont, in Santa clara, in San Jose, in Cupertino. Shorter commute time and better school won't adjust for the price difference.
