palo alto real estate: Palo Alto homes for sale April 21, 2013 - 04/21/13 03:40 PM
Palo Alto is still running far short of inventory to meet home buyer demand. While new homes have come on the market in recent weeks, most of them quickly sell - regardless of the price point. There are a few properties that are staying on the market but they're rare. While some of the offers at the high end aren't coming in where people want them to, homes still tend to sell at or above list price. The sweet spot is still homes in the $1.6 million to $2.2 million range for the most activity. Demand is solid for homes priced over $2.5 million. (0 comments)

palo alto real estate: Should I make a pre-emptive offer on a house in Palo Alto, Cupertino, etc? - 04/26/12 10:08 AM
The local real estate market is now a seller's market, especially for homes in the low-end or median price ranges in many towns. The hottest markets such as Palo Alto, Los Altos, and Cupertino routinely see homes sell with multiple offers.

palo alto real estate: Palo Alto real estate market sales trends 2008-2012 - 02/29/12 01:32 PM
Palo Alto is one of the most popular destination markets in the country. It is recognized around the world because of Stanford University as well as excellent schools, a thriving downtown, lots of trees (it's a "Tree City"), and nice neighborhoods. The price of real estate, particularly on a price per square foot basis, is very expensive for the area. It has been trending upward as the local markets improve and high-tech employers hire more and more staff. Last year, the average selling price in Palo Alto rose over 10%. The monthly trends were twofold; multiple offers exceeding asking prices (1 comments)
