Hi, I’m Warren Oberholser. I’m a realtor in the East Bay Tri-Valley area in Northern California. My goal is to help both buyers and sellers get maximum results for one of their biggest investments, their home.
The Tri-Valley is comprised of 6 cities: Pleasanton, Livermore, Dublin, San Ramon, Danville, and Alamo. To better understand what each city has to offer, I have created a Pros and Cons video and BLOG for each – (Pros & Cons for Pleasanton, Pros & Cons for Livermore, Pros & Cons for Dublin, Pros & Cons for San Ramon, Pros & Cons for Danville and Pros & Cons for Alamo).
My goal this BLOG is to find condo complexes that have active inventory and recently sold comps. Now, one type of property I’m not going to include on this list is a BMRS (BMR Alameda County, BMR Contra Costa) Now, you’re probably going, “What’s a BMR?” BMR stands for below-market-rate. They are regulated by the city and they have specific guidelines for purchasing and selling. Hopefully, this will provide a good understanding of what the cheapest properties are in our current market and the Tri-Valley area.
If you’ve never purchased a condo before, there are a few ground rules I’d like to go over with you first. If you plan to purchase a condo as a rental unit, make sure you verify if the HOA has any rental restrictions. If you’re planning to use FHA financing, make sure the condo complex is FHA approved. Now, all condos have HOAs. These are association fees that cover things such as insurance, maintenance costs, et cetera. Things you should find out about the HOAs are, one, what are the fees, two, are there any litigations, three, are there any upcoming assessment fees, and four, are the HOA fees expected to be going up soon. If you have any questions on this, please email me and I’ll get right back to you.
The majority of condo complexes in the price range I’m going to feature all have either one or two bedrooms and bathrooms. Some of the condos may have three-bedroom units. However, for the price range I’m going to keep it at, most will just be one to two bedrooms with one to two baths. Okay, let’s get started on the cheapest condos in the Tri-Valley area.
We’ll begin with Livermore. The two cheapest condo complexes in Livermore are Murrietta and BrookMeadow Park.
Price ranges from low 300,000s to under 400,000. This may be great for first-time buyers or a rental unit. Again, check with the HOA for any rental restrictions.
Dublin has Alamo Creek Villas and Heritage Commons.
Price ranges between the low 400,000s up to 500,000.
Pleasanton has four condo complexes. They are Laguna Vista, Canyon Meadow circle, Old Pleasanton, and Norton Way.
Price range is between low 400,000s to 500,000.
San Ramon offers six condo complexes in their lowest range. They are The Gardens, Copper Ridge, The Reflections, Vitner, Twin Creeks, and Sienna Hills.
The price range is between the low 400,000s to 500,000.
Danville offers six condo complexes in the lower range. They are Garden Creek, Danville Townhomes, Danville Woods, Danville Green, Fostoria Terrace, and Laurel Gables.
The price range is between 500,000 and $600,000. Please note, Danville Townhomes, per the MLS and tax records, is labeled as a condo. However, Danville Green, in the tax records and MLS, is labeled as a townhome.
Alamo, I could only find one condo complex for Alamo in the lower range. It is Alamo Village.
The price range is between 650 and 700,000. I featured this condo complex in my Pros & Cons for Alamo
I hope you enjoyed this article. Please let me know if you have any questions. Warren
