2009 was actually a busy year for home sales in Santa Clara. Although the national press focused on the sluggish real estate market, record high foreclosures and the country's credit woes, the number of homes sold in the City of Santa Clara was not too far off from 2007 levels. In 2007 569 homes were sold in Santa Clara compared with 539 sold in 2009.  2008 we did witness a very down year, that number dropped to just 485 homes. The biggest difference in 2009 from previous years were the number of short sales and bank owned homes that made up the total sales.

How a Winter Holiday Weekend Can Help Buyers Negotiate (and GET!) a Great Home Buy by Michelle C. Carr-Crowe Did you know it's estimated about 30 percent of the population in Santa Clara County leaves the immediate Valley during most holiday (three-day) weekends? Even in this fiscally conservative environment time, people still plan to get away to visit friends or relatives, as well as campgrounds, beaches, theme parks and pre-paid timeshares. What does this mean for the Buyers who stay in town? First and foremost is OPPORTUNITY due to temporarily reduced competition! Especially in the more competitive market segments, such as under $900,000 for single-family in Lynbrook High, under $600,000 for Cambrian with Branham or Leigh High Schools or almost any single-family home under $400,000....

Santa Clara at the Bottom of Forbes List By Michelle C. Carr-Crowe Everyone wants to be in the Top 10…except on Forbes list of most overpriced homes. This newly updated list features Kissimmee/Orlando, Florida as #1. To find the cities with the most overpriced homes, they ranked the 40 largest Metropolitan Statistical Areas--geographic entities defined by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget, for use in collecting statistics. Using data provided to Forbes by Altos Research, a Mountain View, Calif.-based real estate research firm, each metro area was ranked on the following: 1) percentage of homes that had seen price reductions, an indicator of inflated pricing; 2) the median number of days spent on the market (the longer homes stay on the market, the more likely they are to be overv...

Santa Clara Voters Support Cupertino Schools Yet Measure G Fails By Michelle C. Carr-Crowe At 7:00 pm tonight we were surprised when the phone in our Santa Clara home rang. A Fremont Union High School District student called to remind my husband to vote on Measure G tonight. Our daughter who attends high school in the district had also made calls like this, so we were familiar with the campaign. We'd talked to another volunteer this past weekend in fact. Their persistence paid off. With 59 percent voting yes, Measure G clearly had majority approval. However, it needed 2/3 approval to pass. Whether you live in Cupertino, San Jose, Santa Clara, Sunnyvale or Los Altos, your property's value benefits from being in the Fremont Union High School District (commonly referred to as "Cupertino Sc...

Wonderful news for the Santa Clara Unified School district as API scores have increased across the board on most elementary and middle schools for 2009. Impressively Bracher Elementary is now as high as Sutter, Ponderossa, and Braly. I am a proud Bracher Alum, and want to congratulate the teachers and staff as well as the parents on a great job. Also Don Callejon the only k-8 school is over 800 for the first time. Peterson middle school is continuing to improve as is Laurelwood which just surpassed 900. This is a wonderful trend that I hope will continue for the Santa Clara community and the quality of the student's education. 2009 Growth 2008 Base 2008-09 Growth Target 2008-09 Growth SANTA CLARA UNIFIED 782 764 D 18 Elementary Schools Bowers Elementary 790 765 5 25 Bracher Elementary 8...

Santa Clara single family home inventory dipped below 90 homes this week, the first time since April of 2007. Sales are 25% up from last year and the number of new listings have not been able to keep up with the rate of sales. This has resulted in lower inventory and multiple offer situations and some price appreciation. Total home sales this year so far are 561 homes compared with last year around this time of just 457 homes, which is approximately a 23% increase over last year. Here is a quick look at what has been happening in August sales compared to last year’s August numbers.
