Anybody here live in Hayward that can comment on how safe the city and neighborhood is? Considering purchasing a SFH there.

Looking for a home to buy to commute to Burlingame. TC 360.

    It's pretty bad. Look at Union City and Fremont instead

      Is it worth the extra 15 minutes commute each way to work and the extra cost? I’m trying to get to Burlingame.

      I’d do Daly City or San Bruno for a similar cost.

    I bought here. Seems good to me so far. Very few white people though here.

      What are the pros and cons of living in Hayward?

      I just want to live in a safe neighborhood since I have a newborn.

      Try buying in a gated community.

      Pros- Go for work in SF & South Bay
      Cons- Not considered a good area

    I lived in Hayward 2015-2017. Honestly I wouldn’t go back. I don’t think it’s worth buying a house there.

      I used to love around Industrial Blvd generally there was a lot of petty crime compared to surrounding areas, like breaking into cars, mugging, etc. Now I live in Fremont, of course it’s not the best area around but I feel like better than Hayward.

      How much rent are you getting from your Hayward house? I heard Hayward appreciated well. I keep on hearing Hayward Hill is one of best areas and expensive

      Don’t think someone with 360 TC will buy in Hayward!

    I live in Hayward in the Santa Clara district it's super close to San Mateo and Burlingame you just go straight over 92. The neighborhood is good, mostly families I haven't seen anything sketchy in the 2 years that I've been here. The con is there aren't great schools in Hayward so you might have to enroll your children in private. Houses are still pretty affordable you can get one between 650-750k
