Willow Glen real estate market is a strong seller's market. This Willow Glen sign is from the downtown business district.Willow Glen is perhaps the most charming residential area of the city of San Jose with its old style architecture, tree lined streets and quaint downtown area on Lincoln Avenue and nearby. For folks working in downtown San Jose, the Willow Glen area (roughly the same as 95125 zip code, though a bit of 95124 is included also) is extremely convenient.

The Willow Glen real estate market for single family homes has been slipping a bit more toward a “balanced market”, but remains long-term in a seller’s market.

Willow Glen Condos – Trends at a Glance

Prices have been bouncing up and down a little month over month, which is not surprising with just so few sales per month. A better indicator of the market is the days of inventory and the sale price to list price ratio. Overall, it’s a good market in Willow Glen for condos.  There are more homes listed than for sale, which happens in virtually all markets (sellers tend to think that “everything sells”, but that isn’t the case). The best homes are selling quickly and close to list price.

Here is the Altos Research market profile for condominiums and townhouses in Willow Glen.

 

 

The market has been shifting and moving more into the buyer’s favor since the peak pricing earlier this year. And it is considerably cooler than a year ago (which was off the charts hot). If it continues, we’ll be in a buyer’s market. It may, instead, resume seasonal patterns. We’ll have to wait and see.

Like the greater Silicon Valley region, Willow Glen is comprised of many smaller micro-markets. It will be different in north Willow Glen, Palm Haven, The Willows, or in a walk-to-town area than it will be in the Dry Creek area or St. Francis Woods neighborhood – let alone differences for school districts, price point, zip code and home type! It’s a patchwork of all these smaller markets, in other words. What’s happening in one segment might be very different than in another. Disclaimers aside, overall it is a seller’s market in Willow Glen right now. It’s not as crazy as it was a few months ago – buyers, this is an opportunity to have a whole lot less competition!
