I heard cops in Hayward take crime very seriously. Also, Castro Valley is considered upper end
middle class where residents have more money so thieves would want to target people with more wealth. This is maybe why Castro Valley has more crime than Hayward. But overall. I think the cops in Hayward are doing better job than other areas. Also, maybe Castro Valley has less cops patrolling the city. ... more

As you probably know, there is no area that is crime-free. The best source for this sort of information is local law enforcement. There are also sites like: crimemapping.com and crimereports.com, that are worth looking at. ... more

Anna M Brocco answered:
When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local authorities with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

This is a tough question for Realtors – while we’d love to be able to give you our opinion, we can’t. Overall, Realtors are prohibited by law from telling you whether or not any specific neighborhood is safe. It’s called “steering” and we are prohibited by our code of ethics and federal law from providing such information. Here are a couple posts that explain more:

It is as good a neighbor as any in Fremont. The house is already Pending so you are out of luck if you were interested in it. I suggest that you get together with an experienced local Realtor who can show you houses that you can buy before someone else beats you to them. This is still a fast moving market. ... more
