Los Gatos-Saratotoga Joint Union High School District
There are many factors impacting the Los Gatos real estate market, including the price point and the elementary or high school district. This post is updated monthly, usually around the second week (We’re early this month). Today we’ll look at the Los Gatos realty market by pricing tiers and high school district using the months of inventory as a data point. The months of inventory, or MOI, is the currently active (for sale, no contract or pending sale) homes for sale divided by the number of homes using the same criteria which have closed escrow in the last 30 days.
These numbers were run today using MLSListings.com and it’s possible that a few more homes will be recorded as closed sales or new homes added to the market after we ran these numbers. One other disclaimer: sometimes the number of closed sales is very low or is at 0. This can be for many reasons. In some cases, there are a few which are sale pending and simply haven’t closed recently. In other cases, the opposite could be true, indicating a possible lack of demand or inventory. That being said, what do the numbers say?
Los Gatos real estate months of inventory in 95030 and 95032 combined
The overall MOI still shows a strong sellers market, but with low inventory, possibly affected by the season on top of the continuous low-inventory trend. While there is rapid turnover in the mid-range price points, the high-end to luxury markets show slow to no movement. Demand is active up to the $3 million marker!
So what does it all mean? That Los Gatos remains in a sellers market, that demand is proving to be steady.
Here is the chart from last month for comparison:
All of Los Gatos 95030 and 95032, both high school districts – overall, it’s a clear seller’s market.
