Morgan Hill is a great option for larger homes for the dollar, newer homes for the dollar and if you can get within the Nordstrom school assignment a great option to San Jose.
San Martin- lovely west side against the hills, take a drive down Sycamore Drive or Oak Glen Drive.
West Gilroy, has stronger schools and nice solid suburban neighborhoods. Take a look in Country Estates on the west end of Mantelli for one neighborhood option.
Gilroy home prices is even lower. City has more tax revenue from the Factory Outlet sales. Schools on west end are better than most schools in SJ with high 800s. Even high schools enjoyed new and higher academic achievement. For example, TD Owens is (926) but PA High and Gunn (renowned globally) are 909 & 900.
The South County is known for recreation and estates. Same size homes will fetch 2X in Saratoga or 3X in Woodside.
I have called MH our home for 28 years and know most long time residents. A friendly safe town.

Morgan Hill Glroy is a great to buy. It defintely is the time to buy while prices are. If you look at the statistics on Morgan Hill and Gilroy you will see that prices were very high at a time. Like all areas, prices have dropped as well. Gilroy and Morgan Hill do have your moderat to upscale homes at fantastic prices now. The value will rise as we will recover what's happening in the market. Its a beautiful place to raise your children, still have a bit of the country feel left as well. It could well turn out to be another Los Gatos kinf of get away. You have great rest., wineres near by that shows how it could ever turn into a Napa feel as well, which if you look at properties surounding those area are primal real estate. If you can foresee growth, you can see the potential of this area. Now, if your commuite isn't far, thi could be a perfect place to buy.

At your service,
It's a little more of a drive for most Silicon Valley jobs but you do get more for your money. I prefer Morgan Hill over Gilroy as the schools rate higher in general and it's also a bit closer to Silicon Valley. Morgan Hill has developed a bit slower than neighboring San Jose and this created a more cohesive look overall.
As Silicon Valley continues to expand and grow Morgan Hill will surely remain a favorable place to live and raise a family. I believe that the light rail will eventually make it's way into Morgan Hill and when that happens it will be a really wonderful alternative to singular commuting. I vote "yes".

I expect that the main factor affecting housing prices will be improvements in the local economy. As San Jose housing prices increase, more people will begin looking to Morgan Hill. The increase in demand will cause housing prices in Morgan Hill to rise.
With respect to Gilroy, I have several clients who live in Gilroy and love it. Right now housing prices in Gilroy are relatively low, when compared with housing prices in San Jose. Again, as the economy improves and housing prices in San Jose rise, there will be more demand for housing in Gilroy, which will cause Gilroy housing prices to rise.
Right now, the commute from Gilroy and Morgan Hill to San Jose in the major factor which keeps demand for houses in Gilroy and Morgan Hill relatively low when compared with San Jose. However when the economy improves and demand for housing increases, both Morgan Hill and Gilroy will see increased interest from people looking to buy homes.
