But we can tell you that the area, to the best of my knowledge, is good.
That home appears to be sold, that street is a main street for that area. The area has 3 and 4 bedroom homes.

If you are looking for a home to purchase, you should sit down with a Realtor and discuss what it is you are looking for: price range, features, etc. We are here to help you.

That's good to know.

Of course, we are always willing to hire and train new agents in both Real Estate and in Financial Services. Both fields are easy to license and lots of training.

Nice to know there are options for the many people who are in the job market.

Hello Gita,
As Dawn mentioned, it will depend on your financing and qualifications. Anywhere from 3.5% or more. But this is called a 'down payment' there will be 'closing costs' paid at the time of closing.

The only money you will pay 'up front' is the deposit money, usually 3% of the purchase price. There should be no other up front money paid.

Hope this helps,

Best way, probably, is to look on Craigslist and see what others are charging. However, I really hate Craigslist for finding people. You have to be super-careful, and even then so many of them are flakes. But it should work OK to determine a price. ... more

Having a teenage son of my own, a good school was my greatest concern when I purchased when he was born...I found a great elementary school with the highest API scores but having spent K - 6 through at this elementary school, we have become a part of this community. Just the mention of moving sends shivers down my sons back. He will have to leave everything he has known and start all over. I think if your only concern is schools, buy in the area where they have the best schools K - 12, trust me it will be the best decision you make. I 'm telling you from experience. ... more

Hi Alan,

I like to thank trulia team for such a wonderful platform for consumers, Real Estate professionals, mortgage brokers and lenders to express their opinion and such Q & A

It's good that you are coming here from Belmont to Union City, Bay Area to find a home for your clients. Your clients will appreciate the work/search you are doing for them, even on line like trulia.

INNOVATIONS HOA community in Union City is a gated community. They have a guard on duty to watch for who is entering the complex. They had some parking issues, so now, if a car is parked at a wrong spot they are towing it away in less than 30 minutes. In my opinion it's safe to raise family there. It's close to RXR so there is noise factor but not known any environment issues. It's conveniently located close to BART, Union Landing and Century 25 theater. To find our if they have recent lawsuits or not here is the number for you to call INNOVATIONS HOA 510-490-7314

Good to you and your clients,

Charo Bhatt

Talk to a Union City Police officer to see if they get a lot of calls in that area. I'd also recommend talking to neighbors and people in the area to see if they have any concerns lately.

Bay Area Bloke answered:
Don't you agents and brokers think that with all that development, new homes, apartments, etc, around BART, that will make traffic even worse and reduce the property values of those folks in Union City living along Mission south of Decoto? IF you ask me, usually the more apts, and condos you add to an area, the worse the living conditions. ... more

Dawn Rivera answered:
The homes in Union city have fallen (like every other city ) in comparision to approx. how many foreclosures are in the area. When the banks foreclose they reduce the price to get a quick sale. That in turn brings down the value of the other homes in the area......Hope this helps. If you have any other questions or would like to get inside to see any of the home in question feel free to contact me and I can set it up for you.....Dawn ... more

Hello Tina,
This is an interesting area. I could write and essay on this area, but let me ask some questions to find out exactly what you are after.

Do you know your price range?

Are you searching for townhomes, condos, or a detached home?

Each street needs to be researched seperately.

There is a good amount of inventory in this area. Also, here is a site where you could find out more:

Good luck in your research.
