"Great Views, Bad Schools"

Hasford Heights is small neighborhood crowning the northern most foothills of Wildcat Canyon Regional Park. On the western end of the neighborhood, hilly streets are lined by nicely kept Ranch homes, with bushy front yards and very nice North Bay views. On the eastern end, Hasford is mainly made up condos.

The Ranch homes on the western end of the neighborhood go for between $250 and $300 K while the condos run between $50 and $150 K. These rock bottom prices are as a result of this being in Richmond, whose reputation for crime and poverty drive prices down.

Crime is actually relatively low in the area, with the only serious crime occurring outside of Hasford Heights proper. I would feel relatively safe living in this neighborhood.

As to the local public schools, they are unfortunately still pretty bad, with only the elementary school being okay in term of API.

Overall a very affordable neighborhood with pretty great views.
