It depends on what you are comparing it to? If you are comparing it to properties on the other side of 280 or even West of Skyline, it's very good.

You get fog, but you also see the sunshine a good deal of the time. One good thing is in our Indian summer, it will always cool down at night.

If you go South of San Bruno ave in San Bruno, the weather gets much nicer.

Dear Friend,

There is the east bay, but driving by car in the 30 minute range may not be a viable option, unless you will use BART. Therefore, it does appear that San Bruno, Burlingame, Millbrae, Redwood City, Union City are better options given your 30 minute goal to South San Francisco during rush hour. Good luck! ... more

Ws, the first thing you need to do is get pre-approved for loan otherwise you are wasting your time.
My advice is to go to a big lender like B of A or Wells Fargo. Because this is not going to be your personal residence, you will need at least 25% down.

If you can qualify, then you need to find a good agent in the area where you are looking. If you need referrals for a local agent or loan person, let me know.

The time is right, it's the first time in over 10 years where you can buy an investment property that would pay for itself or even give you cash flow.
