Affordable Bay Area Neighborhoods
A constant challenge for those looking to buy in the Bay Area is affordability. But affordable Bay Area neighborhoods do exist, you just need to know where to look. Neighborhood price points are dependent on many factors, such as proximity to BART and freeways, weather, nearby services, parks and recreation, walkability, shopping and restaurants, schools. Perhaps the best question a prospective buyer can ask is, "How long will my daily commute be?" If you are willing to commute 40-45 minutes, that allows you to consider more neighborhoods and find more wish-list features in homes you can consider.
In this post we'll take a look at a few San Leandro neighborhoods.
Cherrywood is a subdivision of tree-lined streets with 289 homes ranging from 3 bedroom 2 bath, to 6 bedrooms built by Citation Homes starting in 1997 with the first phase and with the last homes finished in 2001. Home features include a gas fireplace in the living room, walk-in closets in the master bedroom, and an en-suit master bath with a jetted soaking tub.
There are several parks and playgrounds in the development as well as nearby the neighborhood. It is close to BART, truly walkable, as well as access to 880 and 580, and close to the old downtown area of San Leandro with shopping and restaurants.
There are older neighborhoods such as Broadmoor, Creekside and Hollywood that are very established and desirable with shopping and restaurants nearby. Bay views are available in the Bay-O-Vista neighborhood. These are just a few affordable bay area neighborhoods, I'll be covering more in the coming weeks.
