Tri-Valley Sales: Mid-Winter Freeze Plus A Plan to Un-Pave Paradise, Put Up Historic Park

kolb-family-ranch.jpgMid-winter has seen a freezing of home sales in the Tri-Valley area. While Dublin shows 7 homes sold this week and the same number in mid-January, both Pleasanton and Livermore are showing greater than a 50% reduction in sales. Currently Dublin inventory is hovering around 219 homes for sale, with 132 of these SFRs; the Pleasanton market shows 265 properties for sale, with 206 of these SFRs; Livermore has the most residences for sale as well as the largest proportion of SFRs: a total of 522 properties are on the market, with 433 of them being SFRs.

While Pleasanton debates development and parkland, Dublin is actually ready to tear down an old shopping mall and replace it with an historic park on Donlon Way. This is the first time that I’ve ever heard of a place getting rid of a shopping mall to put parkland back in; usually it’s the other way around. The city has decided to preserve some historic ranching buildings (see photo) and will move them from across the freeway where they currently stand in Pleasanton to the new location in Dublin. Kudos, citizens of Dublin!
