Need advice choosing neiborhood near Sunnyvale, CA

Asked by E. M., Sunnyvale, CA Tue May 13, 2008

My husband and I are looking to buy a SFH with easy commute to north Sunnyvale, and excellent schools, particularly elementary, preferrably also middle school. We have looked at 94087, but the ~$1M budget needed to get a 3B SFH there is a little bit of a stretch to us. We would be more comfortable with 800-900K. Would anyone please recommend nearby neiborhoods with good schools, as well as good values and growth potentials given the current market situation? Thanks a lot. - E.M.

You have many choices to buy a SFH in Sunnyvale.
Santa Clara with Cupertino schools will be a bit cheaper.
If you don't have a realtor yet, I like to meet you to discuss your specific need.

Hi E.M. Perhaps you might want to add Mountain View as a consideration as well.

Schools associated with 94087 are:
Cumberland - API 901
Cherry Chase - API 900
Laurelwood - API 883

Marian Peterson - API 845
Sunnyvale - API 712

Homestead - API 838
Fremont - API 709
Adrian Wilcox - API 734

Homes in 94087 under $900k are usally older unless attached.

Area to consider? Mountain View
Reverse commute to Sunnyvale
Home to consider - Brand New
1574 Sq. ft.
3 Beds/3.5 Bath
Priced just under $800k

Schools -

Frank L. Huff Elementary - API 902
Crittenden - API 734
Mountain View High - API 833

Might be worth taking a look.

E.M. With your price considerations there are better values in Santa Clara! 800k to900k gets you a large slice of Americana. Look at this link I provided you. There are two great schools nearby, a short commute to Sunnyvale, freindly neighborhoods and here are some of the homes you might like to look at...


There are some REAL values in The Mission City!

Hello EM, You can definitely get a home in the 800-900k range with excellent schools. I have many clients with your same requirements and I'm very familiar with those areas. If you like I can send you listings with specific schools near or over 900 API scores. Keep in mind that in those areas there are still multiple offers. You may have to look in Santa Clara or San Jose 95129 and 95130. Cupertino schools, Moreland Schools, Union schools. Feel free to contact me via my website below.. Good luck.
