East Palo Alto is a mid peninsula city in San Mateo County, located alongside Highway 101. The population is about 33,000 people. Originally built up following World War II as one of many bay area cities intended to accomodate returning WWII veterans with basic, affordable housing under the G.I. Bill, East Palo Alto still offers lower home prices than in its surrounding areas. With great weather, great commutes to several job centers, prestigious neighboring cities, some large lots, an influx of large businesses (Ikea, Four Seasons Hotel, Home Depot, CompUSA, etc.), and plenty of redevelopment going on, look for "EPA" (as East Palo Alto is called) to shine in the years to come. However, there are still tradeoffs... high crime rates and poor school rankings. Oh what a difference a freeway ramp crossing over Hwy 101 can make -- like a 2 million dollar difference, in fact! Still, given time, East Palo Alto will come into its own. All of the seeds for potential success are planted -- it will just take some time. In fact, shades of things to come ... in 2005, two East Palo Alto homes were listed for sale at over a million dollars. Contact the East Palo Alto Chamber of Commerce at 650-482-9711. Most students in East Palo Alto attend schools in the Ravenswood School District. There are some possibilities of transfers to Palo Alto and Menlo Park schools, however -- call the local school districts to inquire. The last census tallied 7,679 housing units in East Palo Alto.

Due to less than desirable crime rates and school performances, home prices in East Palo Alto are among the lowest on the peninsula or even in the neighboring Silicon Valley.
