The best schools area in Fremont is the Mission San Jose school District. However, there are usually few homes on the market in that area and they are sold in a few days of being on the market. People buy a home there when their children start elementary schools and sell when their kids are done with high school. I recently had two listings in that area which were listed because their kids were out of high school.
Mission is one area that does not drop too much in price when compared to other areas simply because people really want to be there for the excellent schools. With that said, there are rezoning issues in some areas of Mission and homes there have gone down in price with those affected by the rezoning.
For the most part Mission has kept its value and as buyers you are fortunate that there are quite a few listings in that area since a few years ago there was very little on the market.
Even if the schools are not important to you, Mission San Jose area makes it a great investment property since the homes are easy to rent and the tenants stay for quite a few years to get their children through some major school years
Another good neighborhood is Ardenwood that has very good schools (Forest Park Elementary and Ardenwood elementary) and is a good community close to 880 freeway and Dumbarton bridge.
There is a great You Tube video on my blog about how great the Mission San Jose school district is. Please go to the link below and watch the video. You will get the answers to all your questions on my Mission San Jose blog.
I would be happy to send you listings in both the school districts if you are interested. Our office is also in the Mission area so we would love to help you. To see the homes I have listed and sold in Fremont, please click on the link below:
