It’s no secret that traditional detached homes can be awfully expensive throughout the Bay Area and the Silicon Valley. But how far is too far when it comes to trading a longer commute for an affordable new build home?
Many buyers are discovering that the perfect balance can be found in Tracy, CA in San Joaquin County. It’s just far enough that housing prices are affordable while offering a reasonable commute via Highway-580 to San Francisco, the East Bay, the Tri-Valley region and the Silicon Valley. As a bonus, Tracy is also convenient to Sacramento and the city is serviced by the San Joaquin Regional Transit District (SMART), commuter services to the Dublin BART Station and the ACE train.
