Hi there Stella,

This would be a question best answered by a Property Inspector or Listing Agent, which you can contact here by using the "Contact An Agent button: http://www.trulia.com/homes/California/San_Jose/sold/1641009-772-Glenside-Dr-San-Jose-CA-95123

We dont recommend that you use our Trulia Estimate, as it only gives the current value and not from 2010, and would not be as accurate as a professional valuation.

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.

Expect 2013 to be the first possible year for price increases nationwide. foreclosures will take at least that long to both come due and go through the process.

Below is a blog showing how to see if buying or renting makes more sense from a purely financial aspect.

If that is helpful I have written about 9 more blogs talking about things in the house buying and considering rent or not aspects of housing.

Below is a house price prediction site.

Home sales are up and prices are down in Minnesota, where some of the most affordable housing markets in the country are at 2000 year home prices.

Many people say the bubble started in 1998 or 1999. That should mean that prices do not have much further to drop. The problem with that thinking is that prices often go below decent valuations when a bubble pops. The bottom often goes below normal pricing in the dumping fervor.

If you do not own now, and you are afraid of losing money, rent. It solves that potential fear.
