Silicon Valley real estate market comparison: Los Gatos, Saratoga, Cupertino and Los Altos on the Valley of Heart’s Delight blog, SanJoseRealEstateLosGatosHomes.com
Today we’re looking at the real estate market for houses in some of the “west valley” communities along the base of the Santa Cruz Mountains – areas where schools are good, crime is low, residents enjoy scenic views of the hills (or of the valley from the hills, depending on the location) and overall, a highly educated population not too far from Highway 85.
Please hop on over to my Valley of Heart’s Delight blog to check out how the Los Gatos market is doing as compared to Saratoga, Cupertino, and Los Altos.
It’s time to decorate some pumpkins! Sereno Group is hosting its 10th annual pumpkin decorating contest and invites kids to transform a small pumpkin into a work of art! This is not a carving contest and there should be no punctures of any kind as these works of art will need to last, and any cuts will cause rotting.
Every child who enters will get a small gift. Voting on the best work of art will take place during office meetings for each of three age groups, with the winner of each getting a prize.
Small pumpkins are being given away at the Sereno Group office locations in Los Gatos, Saratoga, Willow Glen, Aptos / Santa Cruz, Los Altos and Palo Alto – please see flier for office hours. O[tionally, entrants may bring their own small pumpkin.
The deadline is Friday, October 19th, 2018. Have fun – we cannot wait to see the decorated pumpkins!

One reason might be that folks here dress well. It’s not Milan, Florence, or Paris, but Los Gatans spend a lot of money on clothing. In fact, it’s the second highest per capita in the nation, just after the tony city of Danville in the east Bay, according to the US Census Bureau and reported by the Wall Street Journal.
Also ranking high on the list of big spenders for threads in the US in Santa Clara County are nearby Los Altos (#3), Saratoga (#6) and Santa Clara (#8).
As a region, Silicon Valley is not known for high fashion – or fashion at all, actually (pocket protectors are long gone, but the jokes continue). But step into Los Gatos and it’s a little different… a little more European…. Los Gatos lives in two worlds: its own town, history, events and activities but also the broader, high tech, Sharks loving community of Silicon Valley and the South Bay. And it’s equally comfortable with both.
