"Not Worth the Gamble Yet"

Came here with a friend for her to look at a 4-bedroom house. It was actually listed at $1000/month which is an amazingly low price.

18th Street is a fairly typical San Pablo street. It is filled with older homes dating from World War II and before. Rent here is as low as I have ever seen it and you can tell the reasons why by just looking at the homes along the neighborhood: they all have bars on the windows and and steel reinforced screens on the doors. Basically there are crime fears here, even though it is not considered to be as bad as Richmond.

There are some newer Contemporary style homes on the end of 18th Street, but even they have bars on the windows.

It is actually not a bad spot from which to commute and if you happen to be in school, Contra Costa College is nearby. If you are in high school or below, schools are pretty bad however.

This street and neighborhood have potential but I don’t think it is to the point where I would want to gamble on it yet.
  • Some Nice Newer Homes
  • Close to Contra Costa College
  • Very Affordable
  • Bad Schools
  • Crime Worries
  • Mostly Worn Down Older Homes
