It only makes sense when all homes in the neighborhood consists of cookie cutter similar competing properties. That is what appraiser uses for replacement cost adjustment. For example, garage to be at $100/sf, a permitted bonus room to be $130/sf etc.

If you are looking at Discovery Charter School 1 its in Moreland School District. Honestly, the school is not at all as impressive as it looks online. Discovery 2 is really struggling to work out the chaos of a new school and the weak leadership in the same principal Dale Jones. He is all talk and no implementation. They don't offer many of the "classes" stated online and it is really a lot of hype and no substance. The academics are below average as well as most middle school students being below average. The lack of discipline, and low standards may disappoint you. I can't speak for the k-5 grade teachers but I'm not impressed with the 6th grade rolling over to 7the in Fall 2014 teachers. Actually good luck if you get Mrs. Lewis. If your child needs to be challenged don't bother going here there are better schools. ... more

Hello Arbao,

I don't see an address that you're referring to? If you are talking about Miller Middle School in the Cupertino Union School District, I suggest you try using this school locator website: (provided by the school district) to find out more information about any property you are interested in.

As stated by Anna, it is always best to contact the school and/or school district directly and confirm that the home you are interested in falls in the school district you desire and that your kids will be able to attend the schools you wish them to.

Good luck,

Huey Nguyen

Insist on meeting with and dealing with the landlord personally. Make sure you get to see the inside of the place you are going to rent. Never, ever wire money to anyone unless you have met them and can verify they are the landlords. . ... more

Run away!
Cadillac Drive is a bit of a gang area but that rental amount is still too low.
1) Home is on the market for sale-Call that agent.
2) Report this/flag it as a scam.

This is not a traditional land use here in Santa Clara County. You will be looking for commercial/industrial, which is a different category than is usually listed in our MLS.

Also your price point is below almost any of the land here. You may need to look in Stockton. ... more

Michelle Carr-Crowe answered:
It's good you checked here instead of with the "advertiser".
1) Address is not valid-no 1055 Bentoak Lane.
2) Price is way below market for almost any decent neighborhood in Silicon Valley.
3) Trust your gut-if it seemed too good to be true, it usually is.

Hi Zvi

Thanks for your question.

Yes it is a scam, and it is being worked on.

You can also report it to the Police, if you have the time.

This is why Home Owners and Umpty Frat are not allowed to post
their homes.

There are Renters sending money and waiting for keys.

Best regards

Michelle Carr-Crowe answered:
If you are looking for West San Jose Lynbrook High, it is condos/townhomes only at that price range, but there are 2 right now. If you are open to Cupertino or Santa Clara Cupertino High, you have some small, generally Eichler-style SFH, townhomes and condos available, as you do in Cupertino with Cupertino High. Let me know if you'd like more data on your choices. ... more

I would suggest walking the neighborhood and talking to people face to face who live there. They may also have an HOA or Yahoo Group online you could connect with, but probably those will be for residents or by invitation only. ... more
