Silicon Valley Real Estate and Homes for Sale

Real estate in Los Gatos, Monte Sereno, Saratoga, San Jose, Campbell & all of Silicon Valley

Buyers and sellers of Silicon Valley real estate want solid information that they can use to enable them to make good decisions regarding the sale or purchase of a home. This website is designed to assist you to learn about the local residential real estate market, home types, neighborhoods & subdivisions, the process of buying & selling and more, whether you live here now or are relocating to the Los Gatos, Saratoga and San Jose area. There are literally hundreds of pages of information on this website especially geared to be a comprehensive resource for home buyers and sellers – and home owners, too.

Many internet-saavy buyers and sellers begin their education on the web 18 months or more before they are ready to buy or sell. Most don’t really want to talk to a Realtor too early on and would prefer to investigate alone & anonymously.  You will find plenty of reading on this site as well as my others, and also a pre-listing package and home buyer booklet you can pull off the web without registration (both are .pdf files). There are also multiple ways you can view listed homes for sale.  You can browse by area and price point (a great way to see how affordable an area is).

These are not just homes with large price tags, but rather real estate with superior qualities and amenities not seen in regular homes. While in much of the U.S. a million dollars will buy a home worthy of the word “estate”, that is not the case in Santa Clara County, San Mateo County, or anywhere in Silicon Valley. (more…)

Silicon Valley Real Estate’s Micro Markets

Many nation-wide websites would have you believe that you can understand the real estate market by simply plotting trends by city, zip code, or by tracking sales activity within 1 mile of any given property.  While this qualifies as a popular and an easy answer, it’s not a very good one and usually provides far from accurate results.
