The rental market in San Ramon is extremely competitive! There is definitely a shortage of inventory at this time. I would say that a single family home would be the best investment, as town homes generally come with an HOA fee.

I think most posters here have ignored the impact of state law on who can receive a fee arising from a real estate transaction. Some states allow only real estate license holders to receive a fee while others allow not only license holders but principals to the transaction (buyer and seller). Its in this latter group where USAA can pay this rebate. I agree that agents are getting the short end of the stick but they have agreed to do so in return for the lead. That's not all, the brokers in these situations typically take a higher percentage split from the agent than they would were it not a USAA deal. And there's more. In order to participate in their brokers program with USAA, agents usually have to place one or more of their own clients into this pool periodically and will receive the same lower commission.... more

Even though this is an older post, I have seen similar questions from time to time.
One way to handle it is to get written bides on the pool repairs, then on removing the pool. If a particular buyer in the future does not want the pool, you can negotiate the pool removal, but if they want one, you can negotiate the repair costs. This way you don't repair the pool and have a buyer want it removed.

Our policy is a 50% rebate on commissions offered by builders (they always handle the escrow part, so less work for us). Several of the comments mentioned about you needing to visit with an agent the first time around. This is correct in most cases. Some San Ramon builders are more flexible than others. KB, Shapell/Toll, and others may or may not pay an agent if you already visited, but the market is cooling a bit with all the new homes being built and higher inventory, so your chances are improving. Some of them will also add some closing cost credits and upgrades if you or your agent can work it.... more
Bernard is correct, parts of San Ramon have water issues under the homes, especially in the 94583 area code. Sometimes it is sprinklers that are directed towards the foundation, sometimes it is from a nearby hill and sometimes it is a result of inadequate venting (not enough air can get into the sub area) or the foliage is blocking air flow.... more
