Where is Merrivale West?
This complex is found near the intersection of San Tomas Expressway and Payne Avenue in the 95117 area of San Jose. The main road running through the neighborhood is Millich, but there are a number of smaller streets with the designation of “square” too (Merrivale Square, for instance). From this location, it’s a quick jaunt to Santana Row (just 2 miles!) or to downtown Campbell. It’s easy freeway access too. The location is one of the main reasons for the popularity of this area.

What does it cost to buy a townhouse in Merrivale West?
Homes vary in size and precise location as well as interior condition. Properties are selling from just a hair under $720,000 to the mid or high 7’s in most cases, though there was one that sold just over $800,000 earlier in 2016. Of course the price tag is also greatly influenced if it’s a short sale or bank owned (REO) property. Larger homes, such as the 1152 sf model (2 bed/2 bath) generally sell at the higher end of the price spectrum. Overall, though, selection tends to be slim: homes here sell fast, (in 2016 most have sold in under two weeks,) and the perpetual desirability of the neighborhood helps to keep values up.
