Joyce, I love Alum Rock as a neighborhood. In the valley it is an older neighborhood and as you move up into the hills you can find some beautiful custom made homes. A great website for looking up different areas crime reports is I plugged in Alum Rock zip code at 95127 and got the latest greatest…

Compare it to a zip code, say Willow Glen at 95125 and that should give a comparison. Hope that helps! CJ

Great question! Questions regarding crime and safety in Alum Rock are best referred to the local police and sheriff departments. They will have the most up to date and accurate information. A local agent is typically legally restricted from offering an "opinion" about such matters.

As someone who both lives and practices Real Estate in the area, I would suggest keeping as fast east as possible. Of course, like any other answer on trulia, this is a personal opinion. As you travel west on mckee you'll begin to get into areas that have been hit hard by the housing slump. The number of foreclosures and short-sales are high. As we both know, when people are desperate, they tend to make bad decisions. I'm also very active on the Alum Rock Neighborhood Association. We meet every 4th Thursday of the month at the Alum Rock Library located at the corner of White Rd and Alum Rock.

Feel free to shoot me an email and I'll share what I know about a specific location.

You can rely on the answer you get here or you can go to the local police department and get a report from them. Your choice.

A simple rule of tumb is to drive around the neighborhood at different times of the day, night and week. Usually it is easy to see what is going on in the neighborhood.

Hi Joyce,

I know that the schools are not as desirable, so that should tell you alot.

What is the price range you need to work within? What kind of commute do you need?

Call if you have questions Joyce!
