The Spring Housing Market is Already Blooming

Like the recent beautiful weather, the spring real-estate market has made an early appearance. Here's a sample of what's out there.

1455 Latour Lane, #41, Concord

$159,000

This quiet complex tucked away off Clayton Road and abutting Newhall Park is everything I look for when trying to find a great condominium or townhome for my clients. Passing the car wash and fast-food chain on the way in to the parking lot, you would never dream that such a great find is here. Latour Place is set back in a secluded dead-end court with no through traffic. A small, 44-unit community, it is particularly attractive and well-maintained and word has it, has a great homeowners board that does its best to keep the place in tip-top shape. The units are about 900 square feet with two bedrooms and one bath, but there is an additional vanity in the master bedroom. The lower units have a good-sized enclosed front patio and small backyard patio as well. The upper units have a large enclosed patio in front and a small balcony off the bedrooms in back. Many of the units back to bucolic views of Newhall Park.

 This particular unit is a light and bright first-floor condo with extensive upgrades including new doors, crown moldings, an updated bathroom, newer lighting and flooring. There is also ample and convenient parking, always a plus in a condo community.

Walnut Country, or the "Crossings" as it's  more commonly known, has so many benefits that it's hard to list them all, but here are just some: Residents get to send their kids to Foothill Middle School and in Walnut Creek, even though the neighborhood is in Concord, and , known for its high-level of parental involvement. The neighborhood also offers a preschool, a massive, meandering greenbelt and walking path, dotted along the way with rolling lawns,  playgrounds, basketball courts, tennis courts that look like they belong in Blackhawk, three beautiful pools, a clubhouse with pool tables, and other fun stuff, including a dog park.

This 2886-square-foot new listing in the Crossings also has a lot to offer — six bedrooms!
