Nope it's hardly a better option. If you want to live in that area try Brentwood

It's their first and only post that was brought up from the dead. Doesn't read like a legitimate post but more of a rah-rah from someone looking to sell houses. But I suppose we can wait and see if the poster has anything more to say other than Antioch is wonderful and great bargain. It's not that difficult to sniff out the posters with an agenda rather than those that are genuinely looking for information.

I drove down Sycamore recently this month to drop off a friend who needed a ride. Bunch of black dudes between the ages of 16-25 walking the streets/hanging out 11:45 PM....on a TUESDAY. Call it a hunch, but I don't think they are employable. Anyone with a job or going to school doesn't walk around aimlessly at that time, unless there is nightlife near by.

Antioch is a slumburb.
I was going to play basketball for Los Medanos college in Pittsburg. I know the area is not nice. But I think you guys all over exaggerate it. All bad parts of Oakland, Richmond, San Francisco are much worse. I would compare it more to a Hayward. East Palo Alto is worse too.

Antioch is definitely worse than Vallejo. Antioch is also worse than Richmond and West Oakland. Compared to East Oakland? It's probably a draw. Anyway, I would consider living in Pittsburg, Oakley, or Brentwood long before I'd consider Antioch.

If you're thinking of moving to Antioch, don't, and instead move to Vallejo. The housing prices are comparable, the crime is comparable, you're 20 miles closer to San Francisco (30 vs. 50), you're on the bay so the weather is much cooler in the summer, and Vallejo seems to be gentrifying, while Antioch seems to be getting worse. I recently moved to Vallejo (bought a house) and haven't had a single issue, and I'm in proximity to Magazine Street, which is one of Vallejo's rougher areas and never have seen or heard anything bad. Lived here for a year and a half. In Vallejo, the neighborhoods that look nice typically are. In Antioch, big suburban subdivisions with the type of new houses you see in Dublin or Elk Grove still have a ton of drug activity, and violence. My friend Chris lives in Antioch, on the south side of Highway 4, which is considered the nice side, and in the years he's lived there, he's had multiple drug raids near his house, a shooting, and a incident where someone blew up his neighbor's car over a drug debt. Not just saying this, it made the news: Antioch car fire nearly torches two homes Don't be fooled by its suburban aesthetic, Antioch is no ****ing joke.
