Milford Village is the area to buy a house. It is the area in Milpitas with Yosemite to the south, Calaveras to the north, Carnegie to the west, and Temple to the east. I've spent many years here and have enjoyed it. An occasional bad neighbor has been the only problem. ... more

Sounds like you were in charge of the child at the time.You may have no recourse. However, that is a question for a lawyer.

Actually we have the lowest homicide, like 1 last year? And they even think the body was just moved there from another city.

Moving the Landfill is impossible. Even if they prevent growth the so-called odor will be there.

What you're going to end up with down there is a European city with Californian weather and Asian people. I think it's all going to work very well. They've been building high density housing around the Great Mall for years, and it all seems to sell at a good price.

Milpitas is all about diversity and there are plenty of businesses and grocery stores that serve non-Asian people. There is a Safeway, a Nob Hill and another small market within 5-10 minutes drive.

Big projects like BART usually get done a year or two late but I don't see any major construction challenges.

The area has an exceptionally good transportation infrastructure and I don't think there is any chance of overbuilding. House prices in my part of Milpitas are up 27% in the past year. There is plenty of housing demand in Silicon Valley and Milpitas offers more modern housing at a lower cost per sq ft than other cities.

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:

Don’t Get ‘Steered’ in the Wrong Direction

However, we CAN tell you where to go to get information. In your case, for crime statistics, go to the following sites:

John Arendsen answered:
Without trying to politicize RE, I do think that the mood of several markets could be influenced one way or the other by the outcome of the National election. Moreover, however, I think that the RE industry will be impacted by "REGIONAL" employment, income level, economic conditions and consumer confidence or lack thereof.

The demographics in Sunnyvale ,Santa Clara, San Jose are very strong and with all the positive growth in the tech sector in these areas I don't see RE running out of steam anytime soon. If you've got the financial wherewithal, credit and employment I certainly wouldn't be sitting on the sidelines if you really want to invest in RE.

Grace Morioka got it right. A home inspector helps and enthusiastic buyer and a motivated seller find flaws in a home. This helps them reach an agreement.

You already have identified the cracking in your home.

A contractor will estimate the cost and method of repair required. Ask more than one to give you an estimate. The problem and the solution can both be viewed differently by different professionals.

A property crime is a criminal act that occurs when a person takes another person’s property without consent. When a person destroys another person’s property, it is also considered a property crime.

Commonly committed property crimes include: larceny, burglary, motor vehicle theft, arson, vandalism, robbery, and all other theft related offenses.

I hope this helps.

Hi Hanna,
This is Allyson I have helped clients buy in that area, what I recommend you do is drive around the area at different times to get an idea of the area and if possible talk to any neighboors. I suggest you also go on line and get the crime report for Milpitas at
That way you will have a very good idea about your proposed purchase and not just what someone thinks.
Hope this helps, if you have any further questions or need assistance feel free to contact me.
