"Good for Commuters"

Unlike Davis Tract West which is mostly a commercial area for businesses, Davis Tract East is just about all residential, consisting largely of 1940’s era Ranch homes, apartment buildings and some newer tract housing.

The Ranch homes are of the smaller kind that were popular just after WWII. They have small square yards (sometimes just asphalt in front of garages), virtually no backyards, and barely any separation between neighboring houses. They look pretty worn out in this neighborhood—lots of cracks and chipped paint.

You also see a lot of steel reinforced screens on doors that make it so that you can open your door and still have a barrier between you and whoever is on your porch—one of the key indicators that crime is likely to be a problem in this neighborhood. This bares itself out somewhat in crime statistics with about 2 dozen reports of assaults in the last six months, but not much else.

The median sale price of homes in Davis Tract East is about $225 K, with less than 10% breaking the $400 K mark, and all of those that break that mark are from the newer parts of the neighborhood where relatively attractive tract housing was put in at around the Millennium. These neighborhoods are relatively bland but nice in a way that is meant to be attractive for gentrification.

One of the big drawbacks of this neighborhood and San Leandro in general, are the subpar schools which rank poorly on all levels, from elementary to high school.

One of the big benefits of this neighborhood is its proximity to the BART station, which makes the apartments on the eastern end of the neighborhood particularly attractive to Silicon Valley or even San Francisco workers who would like to save some money.

Overall a very affordable place to live for commuters, though not one where you will have much fun.
