Los Altos is a popular place to buy a home and Cupertino offers some of the best schools in the state. Some home buyers want the perfect combination of both so they look for homes in South Los Altos and particularly the Highlands neighborhood. Other neighborhoods in South Los Altos that offer Cupertino schools include the Crestview area, the Fallen Leaf area, and Woodland Acres (adjacent to the Highlands).
Homes in Los Altos tend to be on larger lots than Cupertino, which makes it appealing. Home prices are typically lower than similar homes with Los Altos schools and slightly higher than the Monte Vista neighborhood of Cupertino. Most of the neighborhoods have seen significant remodels and new construction in recent years making them even more desirable.
Typical prices range from just over $1,000,000 for the smallest homes to nealy $3,000,000 for larger, new homes in nice lots with views. Multiple offers are typical but not constant. Home buyers are advised to tour the neighborhood to get sense of views and street preferences. Homes in close proximity to Foothill Expressway or Highway 280 tend to be priced under market rates but are also more difficult to sell. Keep this in mind when considering particular streets.
