Brentwood has many nice neighborhoods and developments. It also has at least one interesting active adult community, Summerset Orchards (see link to Active Communities at right). Nearby Discovery Bay, a waterfront community of under 10,000, is also an interesting possibility. Some of the new neighborhoods were centered around two new golf courses, the Shadow Lakes Golf Club and the Deer Valley Gold Club, that were constructed to take advantage of the views of Mt. Diablo.
The median sales price in mid-2016 was about $522,000, according to Zillow, rising since 2012 when prices were in the $300's.
