From their website:

Lyric is a brand-new community offering pet-friendly, one and two bedroom apartments for rent in Walnut Creek, CA. Our contemporary, mid-rise building boasts a Downtown feel and an enviable list of amenities designed to simplify your daily routine.

Progress on Towne Center Condominiums in Lafayette

Towne Center, Lafayette

Check out the progress on the Towne Center condominiums in Lafayette right behind BART. These condominiums broke ground last year and have sprouted an “e”, previously they were known as “Town Center”. I wondered if they considered changing Center to Centre.

Check out the floor plans here. When I dropped by their sales office last month a one bedroom was going in the 700s, 2br in the 800s, 3br 1.5M with a $400+ monthly maintenance fee. If you don’t hear BART this will be a GREAT location to be.

We usually like to show you homes that sold for less than what the seller was asking. It’s a good way to show that even in a tough market, there are still deals out there.

This is not one of those homes.

This four bed, two-and- a-half bath Hacienda style home in the Lakewood neighborhood area of Walnut Creek sold for $225,000 over the list price and an all cash price of $1,375,000. Marketed as a gardener’s paradise, this listing lasted nine days on the market.
