The best value on the resale market today in Manteca?

The shrinking foreclosure list has a number of homes in need of a lot of work, in less desirable areas, and may even be over priced as the good deals are gone in days. Short sales look good if you can get them.

The most hassle free way to go – and to find value – is in the segment of the market that isn’t under duress.

A prime example is the listing that Paul and Cheri Saxton of Century 21 M&M Associates have at 794 Wynyard Circle just north of Woodward Park listed for $267,000.

The four bedroom, three bathroom home with 2,340 square feet is not only in move-in condition but it has extras galore.

That list includes:

•Granite counters tops and backsplash in the kitchen.

•Custom plantation shutters throughout.

•Sun screens to reduce energy loss.

•Energy efficient dual pane windows.

•Upgraded carpet.

•Hardwood floor in the living room and dining room.

•Above ground pool on concrete pad.

•Above ground spa.

•Covered patio.

•Koi pond with waterfall.

•Large indoor laundry with lots of cabinets.

•Reverse osmosis water filtration system.

•Ceiling fans throughout.

•Storage shed.

•Healthy and maturing landscaping with automated sprinklers.

“It’s literally ready to move into today,” noted Cheri Saxton.

Location is also key. Unlike some areas to the south of Woodward Park that are turning into concreted zones of rentals, Wynyard Circle has a stable population. It also is in a neighborhood that is virtually crime free. Part of it has to do with its location backing up to Woodward Avenue.

Even so, the traffic on Woodward Avenue is barely noticeable.

You are also just across the street from Manteca’s premier park – the 52-acre Woodward Park where there are six soccer fields, two playgrounds – including the city’s biggest and tallest – basketball courts, and more to come in future years.

It is also where you can enjoy summer movies in the park and other such ventures.

You are close to freeway access, shopping, and schools without being near the sound or congestion.

If you are active and like to bicycle, jog or walk you can simply go along Woodard Avenue on the sidewalk for a short distance and then access the Wellington Avenue Bike Path that connects with the Tidewater as well as the Spreckels bike paths and literally go to the library, downtown, shopping, restaurants, the new BMX park, and other locations without ever having to be on the street save for occasional street crossings.

Woodward Park’s perimeter sidewalks also are popular with walkers.
