There is a newer development of town homes. Otherwise the homes tend to be old in less than stellar shape.

Both options buying existing homes and building new homes are good except one takes more time than the other. With home price being low, I thought buying existing homes would be an easier choice. If you tell me your requirements and budget, maybe I can help. Feel free to email or call me.
Good luck to you,
How long do you plan to live there?
Are schools important to you? Or is a good quality of the schools something you would like to have for future resale value?
How flexible or friendly is the city for the planning and building process?
What is the ground like? Is the parcel in a liquifaction zone (Willow Glen, parts of Alviso) where the ground is softer and foundations slip more readily? Is it in a flood or landslide zone?
What is the average price of a home sold and will my building and land costs exceed it (will I go in with equity)?
If you are only focused on commute, that simplifies things considerably.
Many builders choose to do a "one wall standing remodel" where they find a home that needs an overhaul and remodel away. This takes a chunk off of the price!
One of my favorite builders is Joseph Wetzel, "WetCon" construction.
Let me know if you would like more information about Joe or your home search.

Alviso has improved its image over the years. You can definitely get a great deal and feel secure that the flooding issues have been resolved. Please call me to preview some or all of the possibilities.
There are several websites for you to do some research, depending on what is important to you in where you will live. Schools? Crime? Services? etc.
