New Restaurant- Dublin Ranch

hotpot Mongolian Hot Pot Opens in Dublin

Grafton Plaza in Dublin Ranch finally has a new tenant. Located next door to Vito’s Pizza, Mongolian Hot Pot is having its grand opening this week.  The restaurant chain has over 300 restaurants in China and has been well received in the United States. The Dublin location is the restaurant’s fourth Bay Area location. The other three are in San Mateo, Union City and Cupertino and are said to be highly successful.
 
Here’s how it works. The waiter brings a pot of boiling broth to your table and plates of thinly sliced raw vegetables, various meats, seafood and noodles. You dip the raw food into the boiling broth for a couple of minutes to cook. Then you add it into your bowl with some of the broth and condiments to eat.  Mia and I have eaten at the restaurant in Union City and we enjoyed it. It was a fun and different dining experience.

Home Ownership Dublin Ranch

rentvsbuy Rent or Buy in Dublin Ranch?

Homeownership remains less expensive than renting in the top 100 metro areas across the country. Rising home prices and higher interest rates have narrowed the gap but buying is still your best bet. Trulia has a good rent vs buy calculator on their site where you can personalize the results. I used a rent amount of $3500, a purchase price of $900,000 and a 4.5% interest rate. In Oakland, the closest city to us calculated that you would save 14% if you purchase a home instead of renting. You can add in your income tax bracket to factor in your potential mortgage deduction and the length of time you plan to stay in your home.

Dublin Ranch Attracts International Buyers

Dublin Ranch Attracts International Buyers

Investors in Dublin Ranch

international Dublin Ranch Attracts International BuyersLast year Mia and I sold three of our listings to international buyers. Two were from China and one was living in Singapore. International buyers are expected to be a growing segment of the real estate market in the years ahead.
The California Association of Realtors reported that 8% of all buyers in California in 2013 were international buyers. 30% were from China, 13% from Mexico, 9% from Canada and 6% from India. Over one third of the buyers paid cash. It is possible for a foreign buyer to obtain a loan with a minimum down payment of 30-50% depending on their other qualifications.
Dublin Ranch is attractive to international buyers for several reasons. We have great schools, diverse shopping close by, and an ethnically diverse community. We are expecting even more international buyers this year and are placing our listings on international search portals.

New Business’ Coming Soon- Dublin Ranch

hobby Dublin Ranch News  Coming to Dublin CA

Hobby Lobby just took over the last big empty retail space on Amador Valley Blvd vacated more than 5 years ago by Home Depot Expo. They are a craft retailer who sells art supplies, paper crafting, jewelry making supplies, fabric, floral, home décor, seasonal décor, etc. It sounds like a store similar to Michaels.
Alameda County is finally going to break ground on the East Alameda County Courthouse in July. The City of Dublin has had some input over the building’s design and say they are happy with it. The courthouse will be built at the intersection of Hacienda and Gleason on county owned land. It will have 13 courtrooms more than twice as many as the courthouse in Pleasanton.
You may already know that Nordstrom Rack and Whole Foods are coming to Dublin. Regent Centers is building a new shopping center located on the corner of Dublin Blvd and Hacienda called The Villages at Dublin. Did you know that Home Goods will be in the same shopping center? Construction is scheduled to begin at the site in July 2014 and tenants should be able to open in the spring of 2015.

Dublin Ranch Villages Update

Town Homes in Dublin Ranch

villages Dublin Ranch Villages

The townhomes in Dublin Ranch seem to be holding their value. Since three HOAs filed lawsuits against the builder, Toll Brothers, in October 2013, I have been watching to see how the values would hold up. I am happy to report that after the initial wave of buyers who were unaware of the litigation passed, it seems to be business as usual in The Terraces, The Villas and The Courtyards. I have spoken to several loan agents that have sources for loans. Most of the condos and townhomes are not affected by the litigation. Good news for homeowners who want to move this year.
