Milpitas Real Estate MarketThe Milpitas real estate market has been one hot seller’s market in Santa Clara County! Altos Research has called it a strong seller’s market for many months now, and it’s showing no signs of cooling down! Here are a few more points from the latest update to the Milpitas single family homes market, with more data and analysis in the article below:

  • December’s sales rose to 14 while active inventory plunged to 5.
  • Homes are regularly bid well over list price with sales averaging at 109.8% of asking!
  • The average Milpitas home is taking around 15 days to sell, and often less.

The Milpitas Real Estate Market

Milpitas is perpetually attractive for home buyers as the location is convenient and offers good schools. Many areas are close to the hills and enjoy scenic views, too.

So let’s look at some data. First up, the Altos charts using list price and active listings. It is updated automatically on a weekly basis, so check back often:

Something you’ll  notice right away is that aside from the “south county” areas of Morgan Hill, this is one of the less costly cities in the county. (There are parts of San Jose which are also on the more affordable end of the scale – please see an article on my relocation website,, on the topic of the varying prices of homes within the large city of San Jose.)

Milpitas enjoys a close in location, good schools, and in many cases, close up views of the hills or views of the bay and valley from the hills. With BART coming from Fremont into the Berryessa area of San Jose soon, it just keeps getting better looking all the time. Alternative
areas with good schools like Cambrian are far more costly. Combine these factors with the price point being a little more attractive than most of the county, and you can understand why it would draw a lot of very motivated home buyers. All around, Milpitas is a winner.

Milpitas homes for sale will be snatched up quickly in most cases because it’s a community offering good public schools, shorter commutes to many Silicon Valley tech hubs, and there are views of the hills or from them in many spots. The Milpitas real estate market is a sellers’ market due to low inventory and high demand – so if you love a particular home, don’t wait! Being pre-approved with your down payment in hand is a must!
