"Good For Commuters"

Crawford Village is the neighborhood just to the east of the Concord BART station, whose most prominent feature is the Loma Vista Adult Center at its southern most edge. The Adult Center offers classes in parenting and very basic career training—that kind of thing. It is a good resource for those needing to brush up on their basic skills. (For more advanced training, the best bet is probably Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill to the west.)

Crawford Village is largely made up of older style, smaller Ranch homes (90% seem to date for the 1940’s). These homes look their age and are not helped out by the overgrown front yards and lack of sidewalks. It has almost a semi-rural feel, like neighborhoods at the edges of suburbs often do. Crawford Village, however, is not really at the edge of the suburbs.

Prices here range from around $100 K to around $500 K, with the median being around $225 K, and less than 10% breaking the $50O K .

One of the great advantages of this neighborhood is its proximity to the BART station, which means you basically do not have to rely on a car to get to work. You can be in SF in less than an hour from here. Once the BART extends to San Jose, this will make things even better.

You are also really close to the main shopping and recreation areas in Concord—so you will definitely not lack for places to eat and things to do, at least not in terms of suburban expectations.

Unfortunately the schools are not very strong here, which makes this not a very good place for raising kids.
