So, can I laugh about those...excuse my French.......idiots who were criticizing E San Jose?
Let me elaborate.
We recently had a headache for about 2 years during the construction of what I always forget its name, the rapid transit bullchit. It allegedly called for the price of properties to go up. I didn't want to believe on some quick gentrification but it has been going relentlessly no matter what.
I posted a picture of a bunch of for sale signs bunched on the front entrance of a housing complex. The units are being sold as pancakes. Why? Because as I said on a topic, you need to have a futuristic vision and anticipate the events. So, I believe people are seeing that down town SJ eventually will need an upgrade and they know they can't compete against sharks, so they settle in the burbs.
Although I can say all it's rosy, I would have a word of advise to not get that crazy. If you drive from King Rd. to Jackson Ave. on Alum Rock, you will see to your left more than a few units ready to be leased but nobody is moving in. Maybe they need Google around?
The reason we got our home is because many heard the bs from others who said E San Jose was full of crimes or whatever. Those cowards may have paid a price by now.
