EPA is not what you were familiar with. Some neighborhood homes are asking over your budget due to close proximity to job centers.

Before you get confused and worry about this and that, suggest rent to settled down first. ... more

Prices for Condos and Townhomes in Palo Alto have appreciated on average 6.6% per year over the past 17 years. I expect appreciation rates to be in the 6-8% range over the next couple of years. I publish extensive charts on prices at

Prices for single family residences have risen dramatically over the past 2 years and are expected to continue this year. Palo Alto is the epicenter of money flowing in from China, which is making the Palo Alto market the hottest in the area.

As to Rickey Way, these are almost new Townhomes that are very desirable with their modern finishes and contemporary styles. Location close to Facebook, Google and other high-tech companies should ensure continued long-term demand.

You should have a form titled WPA with your purchase contract. It will state who is responsible for the Section 1/ Section 2 work in CA.
Most often the seller pays for section 1, buyer Section 2. However many different terms can be written in the WPA. For condos, when I'm the listing agent, I get interior only reports. That is all my seller is responsible for (walls in no attic space). As everyone else already, walls-out is the responsibility of the HOA (usually).
Definitely ask your agent. I'm sure they will be able to better understand your particular situation.

MK, you're right on target. Even if Nasdaq and the economy rebound, lending is not going to become as loose as it was during the bubble. With the government exerting its will on the banks in the wake of the bailout and widespread realization that loose credit was the chief culprit in causing the recession, we just simply will not return to the days of liar loans, 0% down, interest-only loans, and so on. That alone means that buying power cannot return to the halcyon days of 2006-07.

But Nasdaq and the economy are not rebounding now. So prices will almost certainly drop further.
