Living in Fremont
With easy access to BART, a central Bay Area location, strong schools, and a lower cost of living than many nearby cities, Fremont has become one of California’s biggest cities. According to 2015 estimates, some 230,000 people call the city home—a whopping 8 percent increase since 2010. What began as a hub of small townships and then later became the first home of the major motion picture industry (during the silent film era), today is a booming family-focused community. Nearly 25 percent of the population is under the age of 18.
Fremont might not have the tech hype of other cities in Silicon Valley—although it does boast the Tesla factory—but it does have one of the best high schools in the state, Mission San Jose High School; its scenic Lake Elizabeth; an ideal location; and a burgeoning downtown district. Such benefits make Fremont a highly desirable place to live. Although the city is still more affordable than nearby towns, Zillow’s Median Home Price Index shows median values at $909,500 as of October 2016. That number is only expected to increase in the coming year. With the right updates to your property, Fremont homeowner’s could watch their home’s value increase dramatically.
Remodeling in Fremont
Before you begin a remodel or whole-home renovation in Fremont, it’s important to understand all city limitations, regulations, and industry standards. The City of Fremont requires permits for all new construction or alterations, including some general repairs and replacements, and each permit requires a building inspection. It’s worth noting that permits for bathroom and kitchen updates don’t include structural alterations, such moving walls or adding windows. These requests can be included in regular remodel permits for an additional fee.
If all this detail has you confused, don’t fret. We at Valley Home Builders have extensive experience working with homeowners to meet all building code standards and manage the permitting process from applications to home inspections. Let our knowledge help you get the job done correctly and efficiently every step of the way.
