Another SM village home. Tiny about 1170 sq ft. Asking price seems high for the size of the home. Otherwise neat and clean.

$500+ a sq ft seems to be the "norm" here in the area. The norm for people with more money then common sense.
Regarding property taxes. It looks like San Mateo County has this gem assesed at $78K. Does this mean that if it sells for the asking price, the new taxes will be based on that?
I think, so.yes.

We rent in SM Village area and the homes here are overpriced to say the least. Also? Recent police activity (a shooting) in the neighborhood -- not good!
Thanks for letting me know. I did not know that.

I also rent in the village. Gang activity in most places of the Village is minimal, but the closer you get to the apartments near the caltrain tracks, the closer you are to it. Sometimes you have gang-sponsored birthday parties in Casanova park, but they tend to be peaceful from what I can tell as an outsider.
What else can I tell you? It's a blue collar neighborhood with noisy motorcycles and hotrods zooming down the street pretty frequently. The planes from San Carlos airport are almost constantly overhead especially on weekends. 101 traffic helicopters are buzzing all the time and when they're not, expect a crazy low altitude flyby from time to time by the military choppers from Moffett field or the coast guard. Really I've never lived in a place with so much air traffic!
The school district is by most accounts pretty shitty. The 101 side of your house will slowly accumulate black soot from highway exhaust, but when the wind blows from the mountains, the air is quite fresh. You can't get much more convenient to Hillsdale mall, 101 and 92.
Most houses here are built to withstand practically nothing. They're old, (circa 1947), decrepit and on terribly shaky foundations with no insulation, useless single pane windows, no subfloors if in original condition. If your house has been upgraded, then you may not have to deal with some of those issues...
