Realistically, how long are we talking about when dealing with foreclosures in Saratoga?
Realistically, the average short sale sells in the 3 - 6 month time frame. There are outliers and I've seen some taking a year or more...but 3 - 6 months is a good starting point.

Is Fruitvale Ave a busy street during school days because of the West Valley College?
Too busy means different things to different people. I suggest you go over there during the busy period and see whether it would be a problem for you.
