That house has potential…
I was talking to a builder. They are building around 500 (can be more) Single Family Homes across the other side of Mission Blvd., Hayward.
These are 2,500-3,100 square feet, 4-5 bed, 3 bath, 2 car, 2 store SFHs. Starting prices around $1M (realistically will be around $1.1M to $1.2M after options & lot premiums.) Many of these homes will have bay views.
And by knowing builder strategies, they will increase the house prices, in each releases.
It will take a short few years to finish & sell all hundreds of these new SFHs. After that, these hundreds of households (with income bracket for $1.X Million home) will become a community and will change the area.
After all, Hayward is in the center of Bay Area, with nice bay-weather very similar to the Mid-Peninsula.
The builder said most of their buyers work at Fremont, Mid-peninsula, Palo Alto, and Dublin.
