Median List Prices of Condos in Almaden Valley, Los Gatos, Saratoga and Cupertino

A stranger graph you may never have seen – it is very tangled looking! The slate blue line represents the Saratoga condo market, which I can attest first hand has been suffering.  Of these four market areas, it’s the most expensive.  The green line is Almaden Valley, San Jose, 95120.  It has been slipping in price fairly consistently this year.  Interstingly, though, Los Gatos has had a softer ride and Cupertino’s prices are rising!
