Anyone think buying a house in UC is a good idea? No kids and plan to stay 6-7 years . I’ve heard mixed reviews by everyone but it’s a good spot commute wise for us to go anywhere in the bay 30-45 mins . Also not sure if any big companies plan to expand there in the near future ?

- Some parts of Hayward closer to Fremont may be better. But UC is also good if you don’t care about schools. Also closer to a lot of places.
- That’s because last 5 years Bay Area real estate just exploded. When next downturn comes areas with poor school ratings will be first to implode . I see lot of people wanna go to tri valley and drive 4 hours everyday vs taking a chance and buying homes in UC or Hayward .. reason is simple schools and shady crowd
- New jay10Moved to UC last summer. Area is gentrifying and schools are improving. According to Redfin it’s one of the places where $/ft property prices have gone compared to this time last year. There are 3 housing projects in the pipeline as of now and they are looking to make the BART district an office hub (http://union12atbart.com)
- Well that’s the idea initially but here there’s only 1 good elementary school and most homes don’t fall under that .. unless in next 5-6 years school ratings change
- I’d look at Half Moon Bay. It takes about 15 minutes to get to 280 and crime is pretty much nonexistent.
- Facebook topofferI like living in Union City. Area near Ardenwood and Mission BLVD is good.
