That is a very good question!!
Real Estate markets always go in cycles. Over the last 5 years or so we have been in a falling cycle. Our market has now stabalized and showing signs of recovery in nearly all of our East Bay areas. San Ramon's market has become very active with a high demand and very little inventory. When the market rises or falls the entire area seems to adjust together. San Ramon and all of the cities in our valley have so much to offer they will all appreciate together. Right now the areas with the highest demand are the newer areas, Windemere, The bridges and all of the Gale Ranch areas. Really any home in our mid market here in San Ramon, the $600,000-$900,000 or so are showing the best appreciatiation. Now that we have hit bottom and we are seeing improvement, I don't think you can go wrong in any area of San Ramon, Danville or our 680 market.
Best of luck to you,
