New home price creep returning
Placeholder Image
The sound of hammers singing has been picking up at Woodside Homes’ Tesoro neighborhood located within the triangle created by Atherton Drive, Woodward Avenue and Van Ryn Avenue in southeast Manteca.

That’s good news.

And what’s better news is the fact prices are going up.

The bottom line pricing is now at $207,000, up from $205,000 a month ago and from the bargain basement $199,000 where prices dropped early last year.

The $7,000 jump in what might be Manteca’s most aggressively low priced new neighborhood virtually mirrors the increase in the median sale price on the resale market. It was at $174.900 almost a year ago and is now at $185,000.

2nd Saturday projects today
The 2nd Saturday community service outreach ministry of the Crossroads Grace Community Church will be at it again today.

Volunteers, primarily from the Crossroads church, will be tackling eight tasks around the community including doing minor repairs and yard works for individuals unable to do so.

Two of the higher profile work parties will hit the Tidewater Bikeway shortly after 9 a.m. today. One group will trim hedges and trees as well as pull weeds. Another work detail involves checking on the numerous trees they helped plant along the Moffat segment of the bike path last October to make sure irrigation system is OK plus the staking. They also will pull larger weeds.

If you happen to see the volunteers in action, thank them.

If you’d like details on other projects and to see what might be in store for the second Saturday of July go to Noncongregation members are welcome to join in the community service projects.
