Asked by Nrv, San Ramon, CA • Tue Jan 22, 2008
I will be starting a new job in San Ramon and I am interested in living there as well. My price range is 700-850K, and it would be myself, wife and 2 year old son.
In this price range, there is a fairly even split between the older, more established homes in San Ramon (ranch style, 1500-2000 sq. ft, built in the 70's, some having updated interiors, larger yards, lower property tax, and often no HOA) vs, the newer "Windemere/Gale Ranch" homes (often 2 stories, 1700-2500 sq. ft, built in the last 5 years, modern interiors, small yards, higher property tax in Windemere or higher HOA in Gale Ranch, further from highways/shopping). So, both areas have their pros and cons. It seems as if the older homes seem to linger on the market longer than the newer homes, but with all the new development happening in the newer area, my guess is that a newer home will often compete with a brand new home? What is the better investment (appreciation wise) in these two areas and price ranges? Thanks.
