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?

      I didn’t even imagine that 1b1b will be avail for 550k. From what I read here and other places, it’s too tough to be true.

    • Not to burst your bubble but that’s...

      1. Just the listing price. Put an offer in on a house that was list $650. It sold for 1.2m.
      2. Apartments are not what most people are after in the bay. So it’s not as competitive as the housing market.

      Thanks. Here it is. Okay the actual selling price is 100% more than listing price.

      If aptmt is already 650 listing, it wont double to 1.2 sale price. @nadurak you'll probably get it around half a mil

    Outskirts 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.

      Can confirm. Lived near SJSU for 6 months and one time, a homeless man was just sitting right outside the porch. Very unsettling.

    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.

      I think it was Condos and townhomes. Thanks. From what I see, San Jose looks cheaper (relatively) to the rest of the bay

      It is unless you head to east bay. Have you thought about getting an agent? They’ll be able to help you out by narrowing down what is worth the offer.

      Also think counter commute around here. Traffic is horrendous 😑

      For sure. If it’s San Jose then have to forget commuting to SF

      I have a neighbor who does that. I tell her she’s crazy. 5 plus hours a day combined. I used to commute Palo Alto to San Jose, most days 90 min to 2 hours one way. Never again

      5 hours just in commute. Feeling bad for her.

      Didn’t check. Any catch there? Looks like another fee.

      Some HOAs could easily add 500-900 in your mortgage every month. Still doesn’t seem like a catch ? 😉

    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.

    Also check for sex offenders in the area. They are all over San Jose
