Creating a Hometown Feeling
Campbell, incorporated in 1952, like many of the surrounding cities in the South Bay was originally focused on farming and orchards. Now it holds a mixture of residential and suburban areas, along with headquarters of well-known technology companies like eBay and Barracuda Networks. Most residences are single-family homes, although there are a number of condos, apartments, and executive homes. The majority of the homes were built from the 1950s to 1970s. However, the downtown area is home to some older and historic structures. As with many cities in the Bay Area, Campbell offers the opportunity of remodeling or completing renovating a home, taking advantage of mature neighborhoods with tree-lined streets and nicely sized parcels.
The City of Campbell is experiencing a major resurgence. According to Trulia, Campbell had nearly 10% appreciation in home prices in 2015. You’ll also notice many upgrades and redevelopment in the downtown area; over the last ten years, city leaders actively encouraged retail and dining establishments to open locations all along Campbell Avenue. There’s a hometown atmosphere created by a variety of activities such as a summer concert series, weekly farmers market, first Fridays street entertainment and annual downtown festivals (like Wine Walks, Oktoberfest, and Boogie on the Avenue).
Special Considerations for Campbell Remodeling
The City of Campbell has embraced green building and is one Bay Area city that is at the forefront of new building codes. We’ve found the best way to work with city planners is to start early, sharing ideas and initial plans. Since the city is upgrading sewer lines and their entire electrical infrastructure (moving above ground power lines underground), many homeowners are tasked with including these elements as part of their remodeling project.
Additionally, Campbell considers any modification of 50% or more of the home to be a “new home.” As a result, you’ll need to add a fire sprinkler system, as well as adhere to their green building checklist and other building codes. At Valley Home Builders we have architects and designers on staff to work with you. We can help navigate the special considerations and nuances of renovating a home in this popular Bay Area city.
