Los Gatos real estate market statistics: multi year data by month

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

Inventory of available homes for sale in Los Gatos 95030 and Los Gatos 95032

A quick glance at the last few years suggests that this inventory remains low by a wide margin.

The months of inventory is taken from the rate of sales by the rate of listings. August’s number is not particularly extraordinary – higher than some, lower than others.

Average sale price of homes sold in Los Gatos 95030 & 95032 – Los Gatos house prices

The numbers really jump around a bit in Los Gatos. Los Gatos single family home prices aren’t quite that volatile. What can happen is that in one month, there may be more sales in one school district, home size, or price point than in another. If one month a high proportion of entry level homes sell in a less expensive school district, and the next month a lot of properties sold in a more expensive area with larger homes, it will jump.

The average sale prices are up annually and monthly.

Live Charts, Updated Weekly

Altos Research Profiles of Los Gatos single family homes by zip code

A link is provided to the full weekly report for each zip code. It will bring you to the page for single family homes (houses and duet, or single family attached, homes) in the Los Gatos housing market, but from there  you can click on a tab and view the same type of data for condominiums and townhouses if any data exists for them.

Close to downtown – 95030 (read the full weekly report for Los Gatos 95030, which is automatically updated, here):



A number to watch in the above chart is “price decreased”. Right now 25% of listings in this zip code are taking price reductions. That’s in the range of normal (even in a hot market, some sellers price their homes unrealistically high).


Primarily East, West, and North Los Gatos (view the Altos Research report for Los Gatos 95032 HERE):



Far fewer homes in 95032 are taking price reductions right now. The market action index is also rising in 95032, while it’s declining in 95030. I suspect it’s that prices are more in budget in 95032, so there are more buyers able to compete in those price points.


The Los Gatos Mountains / Santa Cruz Mountains – 95033 (see the full 95033 weekly report here, no condo or TH in these areas):



The Mountain market is usually cooler than the valley floor, but also more affordable, generally. Interesting that 33% of those listings have needed a price reduction.


All 3 Zip Codes combined



Overall, Los Gatos is in a warm seller’s market with extremely high demand and some cooling. Inventory is rising, finally. The days on market are skewed because some homes are on the market for over a year (super expensive houses can take a long time to sell).

Now a graph of the Median Price trends for 95030:



And 95032:



And 95033 (The Los Gatos Mountains)


The Mountain market has the greatest range of pricing by far, but the Median Price is well under either 95032 or 95030.



Getting to Know Your Market

Finally, it should be noted that “the Los Gatos real estate market” is really a compilation of several smaller markets. It’s quite different in the over $3 or $3.5 million range versus the under $1.8 million range (if you can locate a house under 1.8 dollars). It’s also varied from one school district to the next and often one subdivision or neighborhood to the next. The Glenridge market is going to be quite distinct from the Alta Vista or Rinconada Hills market.
