If you are worried about crime check the San Jose Police crime map:
Contact me if you would like to discuss further. I know all the South Bay areas very well because I've lived in most of them.
Do you have children who will be attending the schools? I find that people focus a lot on school scores when they don't have children or they plan on putting their children into private schools. The values are already established based on todays market. It will go up or down respectively to market fluctuations.
Public transport ion is a plus, providing that it doesn't affect the enjoyment of the home due to noise and traffic.
I would suggest you lean on your buyer agent to help you navigate this process, as they know what is important to you and your budget.
All the best to you.
