Actually, I'm not a fan of Communication Hill. It's a personal preference to avoid living next to a large memorial park.
As for better resale value, I'm not sure what's meant by that. Both properties have perceived value which are priced by the market, both today and at resale. In order to be a better value at resale, you would just need to underprice the home relative to the comparables.
If you're looking for long-term returns on your investments, that's a simpler matter, since you're better able to get a finally distressed/discounted home at Communication Hill.
If you're looking for rental returns, both offer below average cash flow rates for the south Bay.
