Real Estate in Los Gatos

Los Gatos real estate and homes for sale

Los Gatos catIf you are looking to buy a home in Los Gatos, there are a few quick principals to understand about the local market.  First, home prices will be higher for historic and downtown Los Gatos real estate than pretty much anywhere else in town. Many home buyers value the “walk to town” location, the lovely older architecture, and the highly regarded Los Gatos schools that can be found in this area.  Second, the school district is a major driver of property values.  It is true that the elementary and middle schools are uniformly strong in all districts, but most consumers place a high value on getting into Los Gatos High over either Leigh High or Westmont High.  Third, shorter commutes will be a big help in boosting home prices, too – so west Los Gatos, which is closer to Cupertino, Sunnyvale, etc. – will often sell for a little more than east Los Gatos. Fourth, the Los Gatos Mountains (95033) is not the same area as the foothills close to town with zip codes of 95030 and 95032.  The 95033 is far less expensive, but usually much further out.

Many other factors will impact home prices in LG, including having a view (or having a bad one, say, of high voltage power lines), neighborhood amenities (such as a nearby park, coffee shop, etc.), home and lot size and of course property condition.

The boundaries for Los Gatos school districts and zip codes

Zip codes don’t follow school district boundaries, nor do school district boundaries follow the town’s boundaries. Further, the high school district is different from the elementary and middle school district.  Confusing? Yes.  The Los Gatos Union School district serves part of Los Gatos, most of Monte Sereno, and part of the unincorporated Los Gatos Mountains.  The Union School District covers part of the east end of Los Gatos and part of the Cambrian area of San Jose, 95124.  On the west side of town, the Campbell Union School District provides the public school education for part of Los Gatos, a small bit of Monte Sereno, part of Saratoga, and of course Campbell.

Below please find first a list of the most recent listings in Los Gatos by zip code, newest first, and then also the LG mountain area.  Then a map search to view what’s for sale visually.
