In the Bayfront condo community of Bayview, the Baygate condominium is the most safe, according to a survey conducted by the University of California, Berkeley.
The survey, conducted by an organization called Baygate Condominiums, found that only one of the 6,852 condos in the community has been the target of a burglary, vandalism or home invasion.
The Baygate building has a five-year warranty and an onsite police station.
“We know we’re very safe, and we’re confident that we’re safe,” said Lisa Buss, a Baygate spokesperson.
The organization has received a total of 7,769 responses from the community.
The majority of respondents said the Baygates condos are safe and said they have never experienced a crime.
“There’s a lot of safety issues around the Bayport area, especially in the downtown area,” Buss said.
“The community is very open and welcoming.”
Residents said that although crime rates are rising, there are a lot more things to worry about than the rising condo prices.
“I think it’s the perception of the community,” said Samuels, a resident in the neighbourhood.
“It’s a little bit of a double standard in that if it’s a rising rate, people are going to get a little worried.”
One of the reasons residents say crime is rising is because of the rise in condo prices, said Buss.
“For some reason people are looking at a condo and saying, ‘Well, I’ll just get the $1 million price tag,'” she said.
The Baygate and Baygate condo buildings are located at the end of the Bay, and the neighbourhood is also known for its low crime rate.
According to a 2017 study by the San Francisco-based non-profit Urban Analytics, the crime rate in the city is about 25 per cent lower than the rest of the United States.
According a report by the National Association of Home Builders, home prices in the area are about 8 per cent below their average market price.
While the Baylets condos are not the safest buildings in the region, they are a safer place to live, Buss added.
“They’re really safe.
I think they’re really well maintained.
It’s the people who live there who are making it so safe,” Bess said.
