Tri-Valley sees 27 home foreclosures in latest report

Values range from $1-million to low of $139,700 with 4 in Pleasanton

Foreclosure activity showed a significant increase last month in Pleasanton, Dublin, Livermore and San Ramon despite a slight surge in conventional sales and an uptick in the economy.

Only recently, Mark Skilling reported on his site that foreclosure sales saw a dip with bank-owned inventories (REOs) mostly flat.

Some Realtors suggested that sales opportunities in the mid- to-low-priced housing market fell because incentives for first-time homebuyers went away. That left more sellers whose home mortgages were more than they could afford with fewer prospective buyers.

Pleasanton saw four foreclosures in April, according to CalREsource, a real estate reporting service.

They ranged from a 903-square-foot home on Arroyo Court that was obtained by Dublin Limited for $139,700 to a 1,368-square-foot home on Francisco Street that was valued at $570,000

Five foreclosures took place last month in Dublin, with investment groups acquiring properties ranging in value from $245,500 for a 1,234-square-foot home on De Marcus Boulevard to a 3,790-square-foot home on Woodrose Circle, acquired by the Silvergate Investment Group for $708,400.

Livermore saw the most foreclosures during the month, with 10 listed between April 7 and April 25. The lowest-priced foreclosure was a 960-square-foot home on Elm Street, taken over by JP MorganChase Bank for $199,203. The most expensive was a 2,274-square-foot home on Ridgecrest Circle, acquired by ING Bank for $602,799.

There were eight foreclosures last month in San Ramon, ranging from $149,121 for a 949-square-foot home on Reflections Drive to a 4,558-square-foot home on Calico Court that was taken over by Bank of America for $1,007,500.
