3 Things you must know before Buying A HOME in Danville California

Are you thinking about buying a home in Danville California but not sure where to get started?  Whether your confused about pricing or about neighborhoods in Danville California, I’ve got you covered.  Today I’m gonna to talk about what you need to know before buying a home in Danville California. I’m going to share with you the TOP three things you absolutely must know when buying a home in Danville California.

 Danville is home to roughly 44,000 people and if you’re thinking about buying a home here, you’ll want to know just what to expect.  Well I’m here to tell you exactly what you need to know before buying a home in Danville California.  Thanks for joining me again here at my channel.  If you’re new here my name is Lisa Peck and I’m the founder of Explore East Bay Homes and on this channel, we talk about everything you need to know about real estate in San Francisco’s Outer East Bay.

    First thing you need to know about buying a home in Danville California is that it is expensive! So be prepared, while cash is still king here, if you’re getting a mortgage, you’ll want to be pre-approved before you get started just so you know what you’re getting yourself into.  The Median home price for a Detached Single Family home in Danville last year in 2021 was $1.8M.  With the influences of the Pandemic and with businesses agreeing to more “work from home” scenarios and all the tech that came out of that experience, we saw that Median Sale price go up to $2.5M.  While prices are simmering a little bit right now, I think you will continue to see prices increase year over year as the demand continues to grow. So, if you think prices we have now are high, they are only going to go higher in the future years.  With the reputation of some of the best public schools in the Bay Area, coupled with being the named the #1 Safest city in California for the last 5 years in a row AND layer in there that the housing stock affords both larger footprint homes as well as larger lot sizes, the prices here will continue to go up although not as dramatically as it did during the pandemic.  There are different kinds of homes here in Danville Ca.  There are condominium, Townhomes and Duets sometimes with very decent sized yards.  If you don’t know what a duet is it’s 2 houses basically stuck together at one wall, each home is considered an end unit.  Danville has been talking about creating a plan for Danville’s “housing element” to meet the State of California requirements for accommodation it’s growing population.  This plan is to take place between 2023 and the plan is to be completed by 2031, as of now the plan includes adding a little over 2200 new homes to the Danville area in various proposed locations.  There is still a lot of work and planning to be done for this project so I’ll keep you updated with any updates to this plan
  2.      COMMUTE

If you’re relocating to Danville from other parts of the Bay or from outside Sf Bay area, you’re going to want to know about the commute times to wherever it is that you work and play.  You gotta know what you’re getting yourself into.  If working in East Bay depending on where you are, your commute can be anywhere from 15 minutes to 90 minutes if you going to San Francisco or to San Jose.  If you chose to take public transit, while Danville doesn’t have it’s own Bart station, there is a Bart station in Dublin and one in Walnut Creek.  Danville also has it’s own local Park n ride or it’s about a 15-30 min drive if you chose to drive to walnut Creek or Dublin.  While you don’t need to leave the Town of Danville for much, You can get just about anywhere you need to go in the Bay Area fairly easily by car or by public transit, you just need to plan ahead and give yourself the right amount of time. 

3.   Everyday Life
