I purchased my home, new, in 1994. I paid $220,000. This summer, the same homes sold for just at $400,000. We had an all-time high in 2006 at about $525,000.

In looking at my long-term appreciation, it just doesn't seem like much in over 20 years. The area has grown, has become more popular, houses sell quickly, but values don't seem to match what's up the road by 10 miles.

Those 10 miles make a HUGE difference.

It's public record, no need to ask....but according to the Assessor....286K, 301K, 308K, 316K, 316K, and 357K...current zillow at 362K. The assessment peaked at 542K in 2006, so you are down 1/3 and if you put even 20% down, you still might be bringing a check to closing. And no surprise that property taxes were 4700 for 2015 and were 4400, when it was at 542K. GreatSchools gives the local K-4 a "2;" muy mal. I bought two homes in Phoenix, one in 2009, which was sold for 90.9% more in 2013, and a SFR bought in 2010, sold for 155% more (fsbo) IN 2012.

Stockton? Not civilization, really. I would compare the 680 corridor including San Ramon, Walnut Creek, Concord, etc. to NoVa. Iran, Cuba, Myanmar, N. Korea....I would rather live in 3 of the 4, than live in Stockton.

Ha! Big fan of Stockton, eh?! That's pretty funny!

I would caution you though on going by the tax assessor numbers for market value. They're usually significantly lower than market value in general. Sometimes there is a lower assessment value to balance out a higher mils rate to begin the increase climb in tax revenues collected for a county.

My parents are listing at 2% above Assessment. They have gotten more accurate over the years...mostly to get more revenue. Of course, it's done annually there, so it can be off in a rapidly changing market, depending on the time of year.

I find it odd to see so many willing to wait in line an hour for Olive Garden.

Protesting on inauguration day? I'd bet my next paycheck that those protesters were not local.
