"Typically Okay Hayward Neighborhood"

Fairview Park is the southeastern most neighborhood in Hayward. Like much of Hayward, the neighborhood is made up of older looking Ranch style homes. To the east of Mission Blvd. the neighborhood skirts up against the empty grassy hills of Taper Park.

You can get a 2-bedroom apartment here for about $1500/month, which is about average for the East Bay.

To buy, the median home here has been selling for around $300K, with prices rising above $500k only on the 10% of homes located in the Millennial neighborhood around Oakbrook. (A really nice suburban looking neighborhood that you usually have to go east over the Contra Costas to find in Alameda County.)

Unfortunately, the schools here are still fairly below average.

It is however a good spot for commuting to most of the East Bay.

The restaurants along Mission are mostly Mexican pupuserias and “cocinas” which probably reflects the strongly Latino flavor of the neighborhood.

If you have a little ballerina in the family, one of the draws to the area is Petit Ballet, a well established ballet school. Had a friend’s daughter who went here and the mom gave it positive marks. There is also the Fairview Park Mall, which is little more than a strip mall with a couple of fast food places and some stores. There is also a great sports club at Rousseau and Mission.

As far as crime goes, its relatively low. There have been about 2 dozen assaults here in the last 6 months and about 5 dozen burglaries and robberies.

Overall a solid Hayward neighborhood.
