I think for all intents and purposes, housing prices will either all rise or fall fairly much in unison with the economy. One area is not going to suddenly become more desirable relative to other areas than it is now. The exception is Alviso which is largely undeveloped and in seemingly a desirable geographical (but not necessarily geological) area. Cheap land now that could become much more lucrative later.

I would opt for centrally located San Jose neighborhoods that are at the brink of gentrification and are the focus for SJ's 2040 plan, The Alameda, Burbank (specifically along W. San Carlos corridor), and North of downtown (specifically N.1st-N13th between Julian and Younger). Central Santa Clara would be another decent investment.

Check Diridon station and check development plans for future. There are many. Then You will realize that next to the Diridon station will be biggest expansion in whole silicon valley.

A lot will going on in zip code 95126 in future. Check that zip code.

Future Diridon station

We will have near Diridon station
- Bart
- Ace train
- Caltrain
- High Speed rail
- VTA
- Capitol

That will be one big and massive station.

Wholefood market - near by.

So right answer to your question is if you plan to invest, invest near Diridon station that is Midtown San Jose.

Parts of San Jose are primed for growth because they were last-in-first-out during the housing boom.

Good points, but San Jose has been very bad at developing cohesive neighborhoods according to its plans. Some big stakeholder always wants an exception from this rule or that.

As such, I don't expect much from Diridon, as Bird/Autumn, the railroad, and a sea of parking lots are effective barriers dividing east of the station from west, BART to downtown isn't fully funded and is at least 20 years off, HSR may arrive even later. Nothing big, cohesive, and likely is in the works to tie together Burbank/Race/Alameda neighborhoods to the hot spots downtown and bridge the Diridon gap.

Check back in 2030, maybe the political landscape might be different.

Milpitas and south fremont smell from both the sewage plant and dixon landing dump are horrible .. most of milpitas gets the stink .. and even south fremont (not weibel) , but warm springs and south ... sad to see miliptas going to dumps only because of the smell .. otherwise it has some good pockets and good schools. I go there a lot because of good shopping (great mall), good preschools .. etc. I live in rivermark area (which is again an overpriced area .. but i am renting .. and i like the area in general)

Alviso has good school , the only risk is flooding .. which can cause lot of issue , otherwise i would say it is best placed .. close to water too, if Alviso wants to turn around it is easy , it has the best locational advantage.
