Purohit,
Sunnyvale's neighborhoods can be very difficult to read. Unlike many cities, it has 3 different school districts that operate within its borders, and the quality of these schools has a tremendous effect on the value of properties in Sunnyvale. The Cupertino SD, which operates in the south end of the city, is probably the best in the state, and the home prices here reflect that. The Sunnyvale SD has two elementary schools that are excellent, Cherry Chase and Cumberland. These are in the western part of the city. The rest of the Sunnyvale SD is ok, but the first 2 are definitely preferred. Third is the Santa Clara SD, and while ok, it's not the best. Right now, there are challenges in the marketplace that were not there years and even months ago. The areas that have good schools are appreciating at a healthy rate, while areas that don't have the best schools seem to be suffering. Even if you don't have children, school districts are great indicators of how a particular market can be expected to perform over the long run, so do pay attention to them. The bottom line is that, as a Realtor doing business in the area, I would try to talk you into buying a little less house in the better area. Not getting all that you hope for or need is a drag, but a few years down the road you will be glad you made the sacrafice, and will most likely be in a better position to move up the 'property ladder.'
