Willow Glen real estate market is a strong seller's market. This Willow Glen sign is from the downtown business district.The Willow Glen real estate market in San Jose is holding up better than many parts of San Jose and the valley generally. It is cooling, but prices are up!

  • Home prices are up both month over month and year over year.
  • Homes are selling in 31 days on average, cooler than September and August.
  • The sale to list price slipped further and sat at 99% in October. Some houses did get multiple offers and sell for much higher than list price, though.

The best priced homes with no location or condition issues continue to sell quickly. Some properties that are taking a long time to sell have moved into “buyer’s market” territory.

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 still a seller’s market in Willow Glen.
