"Another big one in EPA"

Kavanaugh Drive is one of the fairly major streets in East Palo Alto - in size and quantity of traffic, especially because it is a through street that connects Willow Road to University. In most respects, it is like the other residential streets in EPA that are not primarily condo developments. The homes are ranches of varying degrees of quality that have a lot of potential.

Because this is a bigger road and sees slightly more traffic, it is not as run-down as some of its neighbors, making it a better place to invest. But, as is the cases with every street here, East Palo Alto is just that - an investment (and not a short-term one, either). If you are single, and cool with living in roommates in a questionable neighborhood near some great areas, then by all means go for it. Otherwise, I would probably still do some serious research before buying.
  • More affordable
  • Good investment
  • Better EPA street
  • Traffic
  • Sketchy area
  • Schools are not great
