Hi, can anyone explain the pros and cons of buying SFH in Discovery Bay? I have permanent remote work so no need to commute at least till I switch jobs. Live with gf and both aged 30’s. Thanks!
Just sold my house in Discovery Bay at a loss after 13 years. If you are into boating get a waterfront house near fast water. The good ones are $1m plus. Golf course houses are half that price. Plus you can rent dock space cheap. Join the yacht club. Buy a wake surf boat and jet skis. I love the delta lifestyle. 160 marinas. 1000 miles of water ways. 75 miles by water to SF. 90 degrees 3 months a year.
thank you. My budget is within 650k. May I know the reason for selling at loss?
Bought in 2007 near the top. Sold for $700k. Probably the crappiest waterfront in Discovery Bay. Lots of potential, 16000 sf flat lot. Not a levy cliffhanger. 1700 sf 4/2 with a boathouse. Sold off market to a contractor.
Discovery bay is hot too now
Schools are bad there aren’t they?
Schools are bad everywhere in California except Cupertino and PA
any advantage selling off market vs mls listing? I know some celebrities sell off market to be discreet.
Sold to a friend. Had a tenant. Needs a lot of work. Best price on MLS but you need to fix up for sale
so it’s pretty safe neighborhood right? not just the houses near water front but Discovery Bay as a whole.
It is small community. Seems safe to me. Just not much there. Couple of restaurants. Safeway. Not even a hardware store. Have to go to Brentwood or Stockton for a lot of things.
