homes for sale

Almaden Valley homes for sale and real estate market conditionsThe Almaden Valley real estate market is in a declining market month over month, but is still up year over year. This is true for most of Santa Clara County.

This is likely a great “buying opportunity” for those home buyers who were feeling priced out of the market a few months ago. Whether it is a seasonal blip or the beginning of a correction is impossible to know at this time.

Please note that multiple offers are still the norm, as are overbids – but prices are simply lower than in the past. Single family homes are still selling on average at 102.7%, so bear that in mind. To give a sense of the shifting market conditions, please have a look at this graph. Again, market conditions are represented here, not price! (Please click to enlarge.) It is still a seller’s market, but it is moving toward the buyer’s favor now. It will have to go a bit more before it could become a buyer’s market. Will it do that? We have seen similar numbers in recent years that never did dip below. We just have to watch it to see how it unfolds.

We're sorry, but we couldn't find MLS # 81626874 in our database. This property may be a new listing or possibly taken off the market. Please check back again.

The Almaden Winery neighborhood, just off Blossom Hill Road in San Jose, has a rich and interesting past, dating back to the mid 1850s when the site was first planted with grape vines.  It was the first winery in Almaden Valley and one of the oldest in the state of California.  (It survived the prohibition period by getting licensed to make sacramental wine and by bottling grape juice.)

In this post I’ll share some photos of the neighborhood with you, explain about the three different builders/developers and show you where to find each one.

With a bit more than 300 houses, the Almaden Winery area is quite popular, with its homes selling quickly.   The community centers around a lovely park, and additionally there’s a newer library adjacent to it – the Vineland Branch of the San Jose public library system.

Los Gatos Homes for sale - Charter Oaks townhome neighborhood offers a great valueLos Gatos is a very spread out town, covering about 10 square miles. If you are looking online for Los Gatos homes for sale, it can help to narrow the field by zip code, school district, or proximity to something important, such as commute routes or restaurants.  As a starting point, though, browsing the inventory of available properties on the market can help tremendously This can give you a feel for home prices in town and how much real estate your budget can buy. Please note that the Los Gatos real estate market varies by many things, including price point and high school district.

Where can you find Los Gatos homes for sale?

The vast majority of Los Gatos houses, townhomes and condos on the market will be found in the multiple listing service, or MLS, and nearly all (99%?) of those will be visible on the feeds below.  These are part of the internet data exchange, or IDX.  Some listing agents or brokers (or sellers) may “opt out”, but that reduces the visibility, so is uncommon. I work with my clients to scour 100% of the listings on the MLS as well as the privately shared “coming soon” opportunities (not for public view).  Often I will also reach out to my colleagues to see if any of them have pocket listings, which means not publicly advertised on the multiple listing. Networking is an old skill and yet another reason why home buyers do better if they have a buyer’s agent rather than try to go it alone.  Sometimes I end up needing to really beat the bushes for a particular kind of property, and in those cases I will research and move on expired, cancelled, or withdrawn listings, as well.

One more note: Los Gatos has two “in town” zip codes, 95030 and 95032.  The Los Gatos Mountains is the hilly, coastal range area between this town and Scotts Valley in Santa Cruz County and it’s generally an unincorporated region. If you do a web search for “homes for sale Los Gatos CA” you could be looking at listings in the remote nooks and crannies of the Santa Cruz Mountains, so please be aware of zip codes. (95031 is just post office boxes, by the way.) Continue reading
