You will have to review the website for the key to their color coding.

Thank you for your question:

The house in your link is not for sale. What you have in that link is merely a public record of that property and an estimate of value if it were for sale.

The last time this property was for sale was back in 2010. This property was listed for sale back in 2010 and sold for $255,000. Close of escrow was May 26, 2010.

With respect to whether or not this neighborhood is a safe place to live, we as Real Estate Brokers and REALTORS are not permitted to give an opinion with respect to that issue.

I have found that one of the best ways to get a good answer to that question is to knock on the doors of properties in the neighborhood, and ask the occupants what they think of the neighborhood, what to they like about the neighborhood and what do they not like about the neighborhood.

After you have talked with approximately 5 to 6 people in the neighborhood you will have a good idea whether or not this neighborhood is a neighborhood that you will be happy with.

Right now there are very few homes available for sale in San Jose. There are thousands of people who need a place to live. There is an enormous amount of demand for houses for sale and there are very few homes that are actually available for sale.

Any homes that do come on the market are sold almost immediately, often with multiple offers of 10, 20 and 30 offers or more, with overbids of $50,000 to $100,000 over the most recent comparable sales not uncommon.

I recommend that if you are going to have any chance at all of getting a home for yourself and your family, that you ask a REALTOR to represent your interests for you. That is the only way that you will have any chance at all of being competitive against all of the other offers and overbids that you will be up against for any house that does become available on the market.

Thank you,

Hi Breana,
As a realtor we are prevented from steering clients in regards to a neighborhood's demographics, safety, ethnic make up, etc., so we cannot "rate" any area for safety.
However there are websites with the information for you so that you can see what reports have been made to the police. You can review http://www.crimereports.com to see the police activity in the area and also http://www.meganslaw.ca.gov.
If you have any questions feel free to contact me.
At your service,

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department 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.

Agents can not advise on Crime.

I suggest you pull up www.CrimeReports.com
Knock on neighbors doors and discuss the area
Talk with local businesses
Talk with local law enforcement

People with children live in all parts of the world and under various living conditions. Only you can determine at what level is acceptable to you and your family.

Have an amazing day!

Thank you for your question:

You will not find any more car theft or loud music in this neighborhood than you would in any other neighborhood in San Jose. This neighborhood is as safe as any other neighborhood in San Jose.

No matter what neighborhood you choose, you do run the risk of some car theft and some loud noise. Unfortunately that is almost unavoidable.

No sure what area of W. San Jose you are talking about. There were pockets of San Jose near Campbell, for instance, that were in the county and they would patrol that area. Now that pocket was getting turned over to Campbell so Campbell police took over the patrol of that area.

The reason for the ADT is to set off an alarm to deter the burglars and alert yourself and your neighbors.

The alarm company may have a list of neighborhoods and events to share with you regarding the effectiveness. Also, ask the neighbors what their experience has been.

All the best to you.

Ruth and Perry Mistry answered:
Hi Priscilla

One excellent Community is Silver Creek Country club. Since, there are over 3000 homes in the community
it is easy for the HOA to have Guard entry.

Also consider fine communities such as the Axis Towers, Plant 51 and the 88 downtown.

In the case of other Communities, there is no guarantee of Guards being there all times of the day or
night. Also based on the HOA fees, many such communities have dropped live Guards
in lieu of Secured Entrance and Exits with High Metal Automatic Gates and Cameras.

Actually there are services that provide and monitor the Entries at night.

Good luck.

Perry

Hi Decatur and thanks for your post.

Unfortunately, you may have miskeyed your question in to zip code 95125, so your question is showing up in San Jose, California, rather than in Georgia.

As for finding a home for $1000, that's a pretty tall order and one that is unlikely to be fulfilled in any part of the country or the world--particularly because land (without a home on it) is far more pricey than $1000, and the cost of home is far in excess of even $1000. If there were homes available for this price, almost every one of those homes would be snapped up by investors in large quantities. You can look on this site, www.Realtor.com to see homes for sale in and around your area and then gauge how to purchase a home that fits your needs. I might also suggest going to talk with a local loan officer or mortgage broker to see the prices of homes that you can afford and the monthly payments you can qualify to pay.

Good luck!!

Sincerely,
Grace Morioka, SRES

Paul:

Thanks for your post! For the crime statistics in any area of San Jose, see the Police Department site at http://www.sjpd.org. They have detailed crime maps for the area.

As to how safe any area is to live in, the best way to determine this is to speak with the neighbors who live in the area. Neighbors are the most knowledgeable and the most honest about their opinion of any community, and they'll tell you both the good and bad aspects of living in or around the section where you might like to live.

Good luck!

Sincerely,
Grace Morioka, SRES

As REALTORS(R), we are not allowed by our Code of Ethics to discuss which neighborhoods are or are not safe.

My suggestion is a visit to the local police station and talk with them.


There are web based statistical sites, but the cops are the best!

Good luck!
