"Rapidly gentrifying, cute houses, strong neighborhood spirit"

This place offers huge upside. Sure the houses are old and some areas are blighted. But when tear-downs are going for over half a million, you know people are on to something.

Several renovated properties have sold for just under a million. Great commute location. Schools will improve as more educated families move in. Families are restoring charming old homes instead of building McMansions up to lot lines. Strong neighborhood associations. Neighbors willing to engage with each other and watch out for each other.

As for future appreciation, Google campus and transportation hub are going in close by. Santana row and valley fair are within biking distance. San Jose city college right across freeway. Retail along San Carlos and Bascom are improving.
  • Strong be ighborhood spirit
  • Potential for rapid significant appreciation
  • Close to Downtown and Silicon Valley Companies
  • Some Really Attractive Homes on Shasta
  • Strong High School
