If they want to sell that landscape at that price, they should probably improve the landscaping first - like putting in sprinklers. The place looks pretty good right now, but in the summer, it looks terrible with all the brown lawn and weeds. It's like moving to Seattle in the summer - the weather is beautiful, but living there in the winter is a different story. Go to the cemetery now, and it looks fine, but you don't even want to visit in the summer.

It just goes to show. Living and dying is going to cost you if you live in Pleasanton. I remember a time when living was cheap here. Then the mall came and then hacienda park. Pleasanton used to be a small town that was nice to live in. Now everything has a price tag here. A big one! Live on people. Don't die here, yet.
