Gilroy has some really great areas and then some blighted areas. Unless you live in Los Altos or similar demographics, you will tend to find that to be the case. I do many open houses in the desireable NW Quadrant of Gilroy and feel very safe there. If you have any questions, contact me I can assist you. Do you have children? If so what age (s)? Take Care
Good luck, Dunes
