I would suggest that you work with a local realtor for an accurate analysis. Where are you getting your info from regarding the substantial decrease in price?

Good luck!

This would most certainly be considered in both Hearst Elementary and Pleasanton Middle School boundary.

The lead story in our local paper today is headlined “Buy it: rents spike to record”.

The story goes on to say that San Francisco Bay Area rents have hit an all time high.

Rents have gone up dramatically in Pleasanton and all Bay Area cities.

Gilbert Richards answered:
Not necessarily. The amount of short sales may also have to do with the large amount of loan modifications getting denied all over the country.

There are several companies who had deals with Fannie Mae insuring a guarantee of 80% of the original value once the companies have reached a certain loss point.

This has been one of the reasons we have started to see more foreclosure sales in the past few months. Many of these homes have notices of default already filed but have been on waiting lists for 8,9 & 12 months to get modified.

there actually are programs now for home owners who are unemployed and on unemployment.
if their first loan is below $729950 they may qualify for a hamp loan mod as well as getting help with a few months of payments.
California is considered the hardest hit and you may be able to get help for free if you are unemployed. I believe you get a few months of mortgage payments.

I know the word is out there not to pay for help however some home owners do not know what is a good offer and what to do when the lender will not help them.

making home affordable .gov is an exellent resource.

Hi All,

I am an realtor as well as a legal assistant. I work for an Attorney / Broker. I believe Pleasanton as well as other cities will see more foreclosures.

I help home owners who are facing a hardship and whos homes are underwater. I have clients in Livermore Pleasanton that cant afford their payments and will foreclose if they dont modify their loans.

If Pleasanton is on the up I believe that is artificial. With so many short sales here we are actually bringing prices back down. Up, from Where???

Lora answered:
I would much rather move to San Ramon than Pleasanton if not for the commute issue. I remember times during mid-nineties when Fremont homes were valued higher than Pleasanton because of proximity to hot dot-com jobs and still good schools. I am really curious to see what will happen in high-end Pleasanton market as most of notices of default now occur in that sector. ... more

Hi Gary,

James Liptak, 2009 CAR President, issued a brief article on July 7, 2009 which can be found on

Property profiles can again be provided by title companies.

The two title companies that I use most often are providing me with the information. You may want to speak with the branch manager of the company you are using and reference the information found on

Good Luck,

I find this site to be totally worthless . The respones are from sales people ( realtors) tyring to keep the fuel in the fire. Pleasanton is a nice community but is not worth the prices the realtors want you to beleive. This market is not like any other market conidtion we hav escence. Prices need to drop by 30% to get to a minimum real;ty check - in soem caes even more. and by the way they are . Check Paragon for the facts. Those who are spending more will be in short sales in 12- 18 months from now. Get rea and stop paying these high prices. ... more

The Bay East & Data Quick real estate stats for June won't be out for another week or so. If you look at the MLS trend graphs on our site (link below) - you can get a snapshot of the Pleasanton market. You can also request the PDF market details report at no cost to you (and no hassles).

In general the condo market in the Pleasanton area is under a lot of pressure from hundreds of new units coming on the market across the 580 freeway in Dublin.
