You have asked a good question; many buyers would like to know in this kind of comparable homes situation where to land and which home to make it a prime residence?
In my experience, when it comes determine a resale value of a property, following
factors play major role
â€¢ School District
â€¢ Floor plan
â€¢ Yard size
â€¢ Lot location in the community
â€¢ Directions of the front door
Both the Ardenwood and Parkmont Schools have good reputation that I have heard
from my clients, the parents who live in those neighborhoods, which is also evident by Ardenwood and Parkmont schools API scores.
If your question is for your self to see which one should you go forâ€¦
I would say compare your commute to work
1. Ardenwood school area is close to Dumbarton Bridge/84 and 880
2. Parkmont school area is close to 880 and 680
If your concern is age of the home in Ardedwood and Parkmont, I would say compare the neighboring homes rather than age of a particular home. The neighboring homes can help lift the market value of a property if they are well kept or will bring the price down if they are in rough shape.
Itâ€™s a great time to buy than rent; you are on a great track!
Very many (if applicable) tax advantages too!
Good luck to you,
