Many of the schools in the Tri Valley are impacted. You need to call the school district and ask them what the wait lists are for the local school you are near. Also what Grades your children will be in, in the upcoming school year.
One good thing is that there is a lot of movement during the summer months, so it maybe impacted now but come the beginning of the 2013-14 school year they may have space.
You really need to be in contact with the school district as they can give you the best advise and options.
In order to enroll your children in the San Ramon Valley School District you will need to show proof that you are living in the area either by a lease agreement or a utility bill. You will still be able to enroll your children but it may not be the school closest to where you end of residing. Please let me know if you need additional information.

There are many prices on the internet showing prices for â€œforeclosedâ€ homes â€“ in reality, most of these are ads for foreclosure data companies. If the property you are looking at has the red tag, RealtyTrac, then itâ€™s not a real listing and there is no way you will get the property for the price shown â€“ the number shown is typically for a loan, not the actual property.
Truth is, all the foreclosures that you would have access to are on the MLS along with all the other local listings â€¦ and are priced the same. The days of foreclosures with low prices are long gone. In fact, the days of foreclosures themselves are almost gone â€“ currently, there is only 1 foreclosure listed for sale in San Ramon, and it so many offers in on it they are not accepting any more.
If you want to live in San Ramon, you will need to pay the prevailing prices for a home â€“ there are no deals or shortcuts. Additionally, itâ€™s a sellerâ€™s market right now and prices are spiking upward due to the severe lack of inventory. It may not be the news you wanted to hear, but itâ€™s very, very real.... more

Wow...sounds like a beautiful home. The best tips are to work with a listing agent who can create a lot of market exposure for your home. Regardless of the condition of the market, there is ALWAYS demand for unique properties, and they will even fetch a premium. The hardest hit homes in a challenging economy are those "commodity" properties that don't have any distinguishing features. My client recently put a bid on a 1907 brown shingle home that is in absolutely beautiful restored condition...and it is priced at a substantial premium. We offered full price close in 30 days...we lost out to multiple bids over the asking price! My clients are rattled. The best single tip is to give your home a few weeks on the market, with a couple brokers tours and Sunday Open Houses before your review offers...this way you build up an "emotional" value in the buyer's mind. This strategy is horrible to experience if you are a buyer in love with the property, but it brings the highest value to the top!
Thanks for the information. BTW, you should keep on posting on Trulia. Do not let few rude people get under your skin. Just ignore them. I think you add a good valuable information to the site.... more
Be careful, wind can blow like hurricane in these areas, and temperature can shoot up to 135 degree. Kids playing outside will be blown away like a piece of paper, or baked like a piece of cake. If you are afraid of wild fire, do not come here. When there is a fire, it is fire storm.
Is your question serious? Are your worry that San Ramon is such a wild remote place that out laws rule the day. Com'on San Ramon is just another beautiful city in Bay Area. It might be a couple degree hotter in summer than South Bay, otherwise it is a very typical town.... more
