Glenridge condo at 600 Pennsylvania Av 14 - Kitchen


The 2012 remodel (by a previous owner) included a “down to the studs” renovation for most of the unit. That prior owner remodeled the kitchen, half bath, full bath, put in double pane windows, and upgraded the electrical system as well – all with permits and finals.

More recently the owners have replaced the refrigerator and both toilets and also repainted the interior.

The Monte Sereno real estate market

The Monte Sereno real estate market

Monte Sereno Stained Glass Click Here
The City of Monte Sereno is a popular community bordering Los Gatos, Saratoga, and the Santa Cruz mountains. It’s also quite small, with just about 3,500 residents, so tracking the real estate market trends for the area can be tricky.

Info at a glance (details further below):

  • While January had 5 closed sales – a little higher than typical January numbers – there were NO closed sales in February, nor any in February 2022. There’s a real lack of sales data in these charts!
  • This city is currently in a seller’s market with low inventory, just 6 available homes at the end of February, and fewer sales.
  • Pending sales grew month-over-month and remain a little low year-over-year.
  • As of today, March 10, 2023, there are 9 available homes for sale, 2 closed sales so far this month, 1 pending sale, and 0 contingent sales in Monte Sereno.

The number of houses sold in any given month will always be extremely small and the data will jump around. Checking the Los Gatos market will also help, but the best pulse on the market will come from particular sales in particular neighborhoods.

Houses make up most of Monte Sereno – there are no commercial buildings, just a post office, city hall, some churches or religious grounds, and an elementary school. There are also extremely few residential properties that are not detached single family homes. We don’t track the condo or townhomes in this area as we do in other communities because there just wouldn’t be enough (if any) data for it!

First up for the market analysis is the Altos Research weekly profile for Monte Sereno (uses list prices, not sales). This is updated automatically, so feel free to check this article weekly to see what’s happening now with list prices.

Los Gatos real estate market trends and statistics

Los Gatos real estate market graphic with home near downtownAs of today, March 7, 2023, the Los Gatos real estate market in 95030 & 95032 is showing signs of cooling. That said, some homes are still selling fast and with multiple offers and overbids. .

Los Gatos real estate market statistics

Here is some Los Gatos real estate market data that I pulled directly from the MLS today.


Numbers of homes sold

Normally we don’t share the stats on how many houses are selling each month, but it’s so terribly low that I thought it would be good to point this out. In February, just 10 houses sold. Check out the sales for the same month from 2017 on and you can see how abnormally low it is.

Don’t Let Things Grow On Your Roof!

Don’t Let Things Grow On Your Roof!

Things that grow on your roof will shorten its life span, so do not allow debris such as leaves, twigs, or moss to stay there long if they appear.

Leaves, Debris, Weeds: Growth Of A Green Roof?

Los Gatos Roof with grass and weeds growing on itWinter is a great time for dirt, leaves, and other debris to pile up in your rain gutters. Leave it long enough and there will be buildup.  Leave it a really long time and those bits of dust, plant life and other things will mush together and decompose, eventually becoming plant-worthy soil.  Add a few seeds and some rain, and before you know it, green sprouts are popping up on your roof!

I passed a home in Los Gatos in which this seems to have happened.  Grass and weeds were sprouting out of the rain gutters and had crept onto the roof quite a few inches. (Not a great photo – taken with my ancient cell phone’s camera years ago and enlarged to show the roof but trying to keep the house itself anonymous.)

Why is this a problem? Because the more moisture you have trapped up there and the more organizms growing the faster the roof decomposes. You don’t want things like fungus and dry rot to munch away at your home, and having plants grow on your roof is going to lead to exactly that.

Leaves on Roof in Los Gatos Even if you clean it once a year and don’t give it time to decompose, that might not be enough. If you enjoy lush, mature trees near your home your gutters might need to be cleared a few times per season. When a clog occurs, rainwater may be forced back up, spilling over the edge and possibly right into your roof and down your walls – inside or out!

Clean Your Roof! Things that grow on your roof will cause loads of problems!

Different homes require different levels of upkeep this way, so get to know what your home needs and stay on top of maintenance. Keep your roofs and gutters clean so problems like this do not have a chance to start. It is infinitely easier, and often much cheaper, to prevent this than to cure it!

If it’s hard to keep up with the cleaning, consider investing in gutter guards. Also called gutter covers, strainers, or filters these are installed in the opening to catch debris and prevent accumulation and clogging that stops water flow in the gutter. They still require maintenance, but can lessen buildup and make it much easier to complete your cleaning chore!

Keep a special eye on the north facing area, as moss will attempt to grow on your roof there especially.

Specialty “Green” or “Living” Rooves

While not the subject of this post, adventurous homeowners curious about getting a real “green” or “living roof” should contact a roofing professional with experience in that field. These are specialty systems designed with the weight, water, and material considerations necessary to support plant growth while providing a structurally sound roof – they are complex, expensive, and require different maintenance than more typical systems.

Polar Express holiday display

Polar Express holiday display

The Polar Express holiday display is back Los Gatos once again, thanks to the Mac family, the owners of Oak and Willow Construction. They’ve created an impressive front yard winter wonderland with a big dose of Polar Express, a little Whoville, cameo appearances by Snoopy and Charlie Brown, Santa and some reindeer, a Santa Mailbox, decorated trees, snow people, and more.

This is an expansion of last year’s premiere, which featured the locomotive. Now there’s the passenger car that visitors can enter and enjoy, too!

Polar Express fun in Los Gatos at Flintridge Drive and Corcel Court

Quick facts on the Polar Express holiday display in Los Gatos

15596 Flintridge Drive (at the corner with Corcel Court), Los Gatos CA 95032

December evenings, starting at 6 pm, through Dec 31st.

Due to the pandemic, we are avoiding crowds, so stopped by to take a look during daylight hours. It was gorgeous (despite both daylight and the current storm). It must be even more amazing after sunset with all of the holiday lights on.
