los gatos: BROWN IS THE NEW GREEN: Los Gatos & the Water Crisis - 03/18/15 07:49 AM
We are all aware that we have a crisis on our hands.  Here in Los Gatos and most of California we are in our fourth year of unprecedented drought conditions.  Yesterday I received an article from someone back east entitled "Greedy Californians Are Almost Out of Water"!  This was followed by the gripe of what this will do to grocery prices!!  I was deeply offended by this, and was left speechless (something that doesn't often happen).  The price of groceries is the least of our concerns.  After all, WE are the ones who are dealing with all of the conditions attached … (19 comments)

Many markets across the country are in a sellers' markets, and here in the Silicon Valley we have been in a sellers' market for the past 3 years.  Low inventory and high demand have pushed prices up, making this an ideal time for homeowners to sell.  But for those who do not have a second home, the question becomes, "But where do I go?"  This is a fair question, because there are many more buyers than there are homes for sale.  And if you need to sell your current home to buy the next home, things become tricky.  But have no fear...there are … (22 comments)

los gatos: LOS GATOS INVENTORY AT AN ALL TIME LOW!! - 01/10/15 07:42 AM
Just when we thought things couldn't get tighter with inventory, Los Gatos has gone and done it!  And Los Gatos is not alone...all of Santa Clara county is lacking inventory as well.  Actually, lacking is putting it mildly!!  Los Gatos currently has 43 active listings (this includes single family homes, townhouses, and condos), compared to 73 active listings this time last year!!  Santa Clara County is down from last year's 1159 active listings to 703 current active listings!  That's approximately 40% down!
With interest rates forcasted to go up by year end, buyers will want to jump on the opportunity to take advantage of low … (4 comments)
