Alamo, CA is a great place for affordable rent-to-own homes! With a median household income of over $248,167 and a median rent of $2,770, the Alamo, CA rent-to-own market is more affordable than the traditional housing market which has shown tremendous growth across the U.S. and with it, aggressive competition for home purchases. With the current housing shortage trend it can make it harder to become a homeowner, including in Alamo, CA. This means higher than average down payments for homes and higher qualification standards for conventional home loans. With a rent-to-own property, tenants are also buyers. You can live in the house for a set amount of time before you purchase it, meaning that you get to know the house, your neighbors, and your community before making the final purchase. This enables you and your family to make the right choice based on both information and experience. Rent-to-own is also a great alternative way to get into a home if you have bad credit or don't have enough saved for a down payment.

Top 5 Reasons to Live in Alamo, CA

Live among the stars! Many large-gated houses can be found here, but newer constructions and apartments have been built closer to downtown, providing wonderful homes for sale in every price range. As the real estate market recovers, prices are on the rise, making this a great time to buy! Alamo is home to the personal residences of several NFL players and the President of Safeway, Inc. The neighborhoods along Danville Boulevard and Livorna Drive offer the most celebrity appeal.

Enjoy the fruits of the land! Alamo's climate is considered to be mild Mediterranean, with rain in the winter and lots of sunshine in the summer. Wheat, grains, walnuts, pears, almonds, and grapes, to name a few, are still grown in this setting, making local farmers' markets a great place to shop. Head to the Alamo Farmers Market on Saturday for your weekly shopping, or Oak Hill Park to pick from the community vegetable garden.

Rent a house or apartment and save cash! Rental prices become lower the further one is from San Francisco, so with a fairly short commute it's easy to save money. Rent to own homes can be the perfect vehicle toward home ownership like along Vernal Drive or Las Trampas Road.

Great summer activities!. Livorna Park, one of many parks in Alamo, has playgrounds, picnic areas, a sand volleyball court, and a gazebo that can be rented for special activities. It also hosts a summer concert Series on Friday nights. Bring your chairs, blankets, and picnic baskets, and meet the community! Alternatively, escape the heat with a dip in the pool at East Bay Regional Park.

Delicious local restaurants! Rated the number one bakery in Contra Costa County, Katrina Rozelle specializes in excellent made-to-order cakes and decadent homemade cookies. For something affordable, but ridiculously addicting, the huge servings at High Tech Burrito will have you joining the long lunch crowd every day.
