Just sending a hopefully stimulating and informative message to say Hello, and let you know homes continue to sell in warm, sunny Silicon Valley! I've been out there selling houses this past Summer, I just sold 4 more homes since June 30th. I remain in the Top 10% in my Coldwell Banker Los Gatos office, which is significant considering my office does the most residential sales in Silicon Valley!
Over the summer, I've met many fellow Baby Boomers who are looking to downsize, move out of their large homes as their kids have now gone off to college, and they are looking to buy a smaller home with a high walk-abililty score! One of the most walkable towns in Silicon Valley is downtown Los Gatos! If your intention is to walk to groceries, shopping, dining ~ here you can walk to our weekly farmers market, enjoy time in the parks & library, (have you been to Vasona Park
? Picnics, Biking, Pedal boats? Helloo?), buy that iPhone, Ipad, or take those Mac classes at our AppleStore
, even visit your insurance agent (Laura Peterson, State Farm
, Helloo?), or that required DMV appt.. Campo di Bocce Ball! Not to mention the awesome Annual Christmas Parade & Carriage Rides! Oops, must bring up the *NEW* Safeway that just opened last week! If you don't want to walk, rather ride a scooter? VIsit ScooterlandUS
and buy an electric scooter! Hey, get a hairdo at Tao Blaze
or a facial at Yvette's Day Spa
! That's just an abbreviated smidge of the convenience and good fun going on when you live near downtown Los Gatos! *IF you are one of those people, I'd like to draw your attention to just a couple of homes in the desirable Almond Grove area of Los Gatos

So it is now the week before Labor Day Weekend, Kids have gone back to school and we know Autumn is a few weeks away. The economic indicators report that the answer for overall improved economic conditions is job growth. Corporations and Banks have had time to restructure. While many industries have restructured or no longer exist, while others have been taking root. We know consumption makes up 70% of the U.S. economy, and with these conditions we know many Americans have been on a diet. We know we have political and market instability, so when you think of investing your money for the future returns, one evergreen agreeable option is to live your life in an affordable home that will make you more cents over time. Home is Where the Heart Is...There is no Place Like Home. ~> Many are buying investment properties for this very reason as well ~ invest in providing a home for others.. Single family rentals is a good thing for our housing market overall. But if not investing in rentals, where are you in your time horizon? ~>So where do you buy a home to live a less chaotic life? When you consider that California is the 22nd largest economy in the world~ and here in Silicon Valley, we have good education and services ~ our economy is moving along with large, funded companies working on Internet & Appliances, Social Media/Information Systems, and Biotech to mention a few.. San Francisco is an International City and the weather, mountains, & beaches are conducive for a balanced lifestyle with outdoor activities like hiking, sailing, kayaking, biking, & all types of skiing. I could go on about how much I believe in the entire San Francisco Bay area!
