Hi,
A nice kitchen and bath seem to be popular points of focus. A sun room or covered patio are popular with some as well, if the house is smaller.

Kind regards,

I know this is an old post, however, I am in a similar situation as I am moving from Los Angeles to in Stanford (the area not the university) and would appreciate advise on the following:

-Reasonable short term rental housing options (to give me some time to look for something more permanent)
-Areas (towns, cities, etc) within a 20-30 mile radius of Stanford to look for reasonable housing options (rent)

Any advice is greatly appreciated!

-Alexander

I'm sure that you could find a good company by asking your neighbors. In San Jose, there are quite a few bugs because it's kind of humid. I would also recommend looking for reviews online. That is one of the easiest ways to find a good exterminator. http://oldislandpestcontrol.com/pest-products ... more

Me and my wife just bought a building and got a 203 loan, at the closing no one showed up but us and the lawyer not there lawyer. So we signed all the paper work and a week later they said the building is yours. We had a construction loan added to that to get a new porch, garage, and fix the basement. Now the porch is done we can't get in contact with the people to pay out to the GC, now my wife feels like it was a scam and we don't even own the building. What should we do? ... more

Without knowing the neighborhood, it's impossible to say. Perhaps you should consult local police, parking ordinances, etc.

Hello Resh,

I have had listings in this area, and no one complained about a smell, but traffic is affected.

I don't think there's a way to figure this out other than to go to the area you are looking to buy a home in and see for yourself. If you are worried about the traffic noise from the garbage trucks, then I would also suggest you go to the area on a morning when the trucks are coming in and out. Only you can decide if a smell is an odor you cannot live with, or if the noise is too loud. If you see any neighbors in the neighborhood you would like to live in, you may be able to ask them about any noise or odor issues. Residents know the area best, since they are there 24 hours a day. Again, these things are very subjective, so it is still best for you to investigate by going to the area during the day, at night, and also in the morning when the trucks are coming in and out.

Please consult with a Realtor when you have found a specific home you would like to know more about. You and your Realtor can investigate more closely these matters.

Contact me, if you would like to discuss specific properties or the neighborhood. I can help you!

Best regards,


Huey Nguyen

I have been an Almaden resident for over 25 years. When we were younger and before our family, we really weren't concerned with getting involved with the neighbors. Each pocket of Almaden is different, as is so with any community. More people are able to drive their cars into their garages and may avoid getting to know their neighbors this way, however I do see quite a bit of people going for walks with their families, dogs, etc. Not everyone wants to get to know their neighbors, but there is a private site called NextDoor.com that neighborhoods have created where you can get to know your neighbors, set up play dates, exercise groups, etc. It's always a good idea to get to know your neighbors so that you can look out for each other and meet new friends as well. Sometimes you have to put yourself out there. ... more
