Leo or Leona - the mascot of Los Gatos As of today, May 10, 2023, the Los Gatos real estate market in 95030 & 95032 is showing slight signs of cooling as inventory is rising while there’s a slight falling off of closed sales. Many homes are still selling quickly, but some languish on the market – mostly if they started overpriced or have a location defect. Overall, it’s a slight seller’s market.

Stats from the MLS for Los Gatos 95030 and Los Gatos 95032

Here is some Los Gatos real estate market data that I pulled directly from the MLS.


More homes are coming on the market – but it’s still below what we typically see for April.

Months of Inventory

It’s a slight seller’s market generally, but turnkey, more affordable homes are in a hotter tier of the market.

Average sale price of homes sold in Los Gatos 95030 & 95032 – Los Gatos house prices

The numbers really jump around a bit in Los Gatos. Los Gatos single family home prices aren’t quite that volatile. What can happen is that in one month, there may be more sales in one school district, home size, or price point than in another. If one month a high proportion of entry level homes sell in a less expensive school district, and the next month a lot of properties sold in a more expensive area with larger homes, it will jump.

Home prices are about the same as a month earlier – and very close to February’s, too.

Altos Research Charts


From ALTOS – a view of LG 95030 (these are updated automatically each week). Altos uses LIST prices and active listing data. Of interest is comparing the 87 days on market for the active listings in 95030 and 76 in 95032 compared with the 30 days to sell for homes that did sell and close escrow (in the RE Report below). These are not by school district, but nearly all of 95030 has Los Gatos Schools while only about 1/3 of 95032 does.

Next we’ll have a quick look at the town by zip code and will use Altos Research charts and graphs (using list prices, not sold ones) to get a pulse on the market. Disclaimers aside, here’s the broad overview by zip code – hope you find this helpful! I will be using “live charts” here so they will always be current.

Generally this area has a lower price range than in 95030, at any given point in time it could vary.

Los Gatos is a very complex real estate market because there are so many variables, including:

  • proximity to downtown (“walk to town” always a huge plus)
  • school district (“Los Gatos Schools” usually strongly preferred)
  • historic nature of homes & neighborhoods
  • slope and usability of the land
  • views
  • neighborhood amenities (cabana, nearby park, walkability)
  • access to popular venues and locations (parks, shopping, schools)
  • negative features such as busy roads, high voltage lines, being too close to freeways/trains, natural hazards such as earthquake faults etc.
  • type of sale (distressed or regular sale)

Like anywhere else, homes in Los Gatos will have some positive and some negative features, and so will each location.
