Critically Low Inventory of Homes for Sale in Los Gatos

The inventory of single family homes for sale in Los Gatos 95030, 95032, and 95033 (the mountains) has not been lower in recent memory. This morning I pulled the data and saw that we now have a critically low inventory of homes for sale in Los Gatos. Here are the numbers so that you can see what a more typical month in the Gem City of the Foothills looks like.

Something odd is that while most of Silicon Valley (and maybe the majority of the U.S.) is seeing a rising inventory, here in Los Gatos, it’s been shrinking.

For people thinking of selling, this is an excellent opportunity, generally, since few homes available creates the scarcity that lends itself toward homes selling faster and for more (if there are multiple offers especially).  Homes under $3 million are selling briskly.

Sometime before the 10th of this month, there will be more information about the Los Gatos real estate market via my online Real Estate Report. Also available, download the 4 page printable report here:
