"Mediocre at Best"

Toyon Drive is short residential street in the Ellis Lake neighborhood. I came here to look at a 3-bedroom house with a friend of mine. This neighborhood is pretty much all Ranch homes. The yards are somewhat untended in this section of this neighborhood and you can see a lot of dead lawns. The rent was about $1700 which is not too bad for a 3-bedroom generally but feels overpriced on this street.

Most of the homes here date from the 1950’s and the median price for the 3 that have sold on Toyon recently is around $300K--about average for Concord I would say. These houses could look better. They have a bit of run down look to them which is also generally true of the surrounding streets to the south. (There are some nice apartments to the north and south however.)

Overall this is at best a mediocre spot. The schools are pretty bad as well. I like the nearby apartments but these homes are overpriced for the neighborhood in my opinion. Just not very well-kept. And not a great spot for families generally.
Pros
  • Relatively Average Rent
  • Close to Movies and Downtown
  • Not Bad for Commuters
Cons
  • Poor Schools
  • Kind of Rundown Looking
  • Overpriced for What you Get
