1.2 million dollars asking price considering the average sales run 5-700k. Well it may sit on the market a while.

Homes on Gilbert have always been very expensive. It's considered a very desirable area of the city to live in, and the lots are normally quite large.

It's not like Garden Grove is a dangerous ghetto. Sheesh.

No, not ghetto area, but still, you'd think a mil would be in a much nicer neighborhood. But, that house is lovely! Spacious home on HUGE lot, which is very rare. Older construction, but updated inside. I like.

the reason housing prices are "ridiculous" in that area is that the Vietnamese want to stay together in that area, Westminster and Garden Grove. just like everyone else want to be in Orange County, the Vietnamese want to buy in Garden Grove/Westminter

I get the want to stay in their neighborhood, but I expect lower crimes rate for that kind of money. When I drive around GG it feels like some are so insulated, like some of the Persians here in Irvine, that they never want to leave their "community" at all. All signs in characters little English spoken.

the area is just fine. I have Vietnamese officemate and we used to go there to have lunch together with our white supervisor and I can see the "discomfort" of my supervisor

its just a matter of getting used to it and considering the place they came from, the place is still considered safe

It's just a WEIRD setup. I mean, the only million dollar house surrounded by mid 500k homes. Like, trying to be a big shot or something? LOL

There is one block hidden on Gilbert that has nothing but expensive homes. (Royal Palm Drive). It's a pretty nice area too. Those homes would be worth it.

But this one is right on Gilbert with heavy traffic. Traffic is even worse now that they opened up a Walmart like a few block away.
