Planning to move to San Jose. Was checking Zillow and found few good houses for 500 to 600k near downtown. It was too hard to believe. What’s the approx cost for 1bhk in that area?
- Glu Mobile PQSK63Outskirts of downtown San Jose is known for low-income resident and unsafe neighborhoods. Check crime map data first and decide if the location is right for u.
- If that’s a SFH, they’re pricing low to get a bidding war started. Condo or townhome, that’s a decent price to start. If you move to east or south San Jose the prices get better but not by a lot.
- San Jose is not really a super sought after city in my opinion. Many parts are pretty ghetto and unsafe too which are getting better now in the past 1-2 years. The more sought after areas are Sunnyvale and Cupertino, apparently because of great school districts.
Disclaimer: I have never really planned on buying a house in the bay area and what i presented is mostly my personal experience living around for 3 years and talking to people who have owned or renting.
