Hi Ferfiewen,

I actually grew up in that zip code, went to Herman Jr. High School and then to Santa Teresa High. I still have many friends who also live in that area. I think it's a good place to live and buy, but of course definitely check out the neighborhoods. If you need help or any questions in finding your next home. Please don't hesitate to call.

That is in the Blossom Valley area, and as Allyson and Charles recommended, all neighborhood have their cons and pros. Do your research.

In addition to visiting the area at various times of day, night, weekends, knocking on doors, and visiting neighborhood businesses, you can also check http://www.CrimeReports.com

Have an amazing day!

Hi Ferdiewen,
To add on to what Charles said you can drive around the area and see, also you can check crime reports for the area. My office is in 95123 I like the area, but as most areas there are good and bad sections. Check it out and go to open houses and ask the neighbors what it is like.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
At your service,

Thank you for your question Ferdiewen:

I like the area. I have several clients who own homes in this area and they like it.

However I have found that the best way for you to tell if you will like the area is to knock on some doors and talk to some of the homeowners and ask them what the like and do not like about the neighborhood.

That will give you a better idea than almost anything else that you can do to tell if you will like the neighborhood.

Thank you,
