Blossom Hill Manor Real Estate Market

February 16, 2013

Map of the Blossom Hill Manor neighborhood of Los Gatos (east Los Gatos)The Blossom Hill Manor (aka “the Manor” or “Blossom Manor”) is a very highly sought after neighborhood with its close proximity to the highly regarded Los Gatos schools, parks, shops, grocery stores and major transit routes.  Homes there are well maintained, many streets are tree-lined and there’s a good amount of community spirit and involvement in this close-in area.

The real estate market in Los Gatos has been steadily improving since the low point in about 2009, but there’s a great deal of variation from one area, price point, school district, age and condition of home to the next.  The “fixer” market is different from the luxury market. 

What of the Manor? How are prices today compared to the peak in about 2007?  Are home values at or near the high point? 

The short answer is this: not yet, but getting there.  Many of the indicators show consistent appreciation, a buyer population that wants homes there faster than they can come on, and generally very favorable selling conditions.  It is not yet a crazy, overheated market – but if the shortage of inventory continues (today there are NO homes for sale except one which is already sale pending in Blossom Manor) and demand continues, it may go that way.

Today I spent most of the day researching the market for this pocket of Los Gatos, and I pulled the stats going all the way back to 1998 to get the 10,000 foot view.  Please find that detailed article on my Valley of Heart’s Delight blog:
