Today I had the unwelcome honor of watching a neighbor’s house burn down. Thankfully a couple of brave souls working close by entered the burning house and woke the owner, allowing him to escape without
When you take a look at what makes a community work it is several factors. Yes Saratoga and Cupertino have better schools in regards to API scores, but LGHS is still amont the upper escalon as far as High schools go in Santa Clara Valley. Take a look at the downtown areas, Cupertino is more a bedroom community with multiple pocket areas for shopping and no real dwontown, Saratoga's Downtown is going thru a transition, Campbell and the Willow Glen areas have great downtowns like Los Gatos does, but not all their schools compare to Los Gatos's. Los Gatos is still a town with a small town feel, where the community as a whole is very supportive of the town and its activities,couple that with a low crime rate, wonderful location and you can see that when you look at the whole package Los Gatos is hard to beat.... more

In order answers are:
1) very rarely, as in extremely rarely, as in rarely enough to not worry about, this happens.
2) Yes, after discussing it in house.
3) No you don't have to be an all cash buyer to compete. You have to have your finances ready for the purchase and be able to prove you can complete the deal you offer. Not all of Los Gatos is on fire price wise. Prices are still substantially less then before the bubble burst. Los Gatos will always be a high priced area in the 95030 and 95033 areas. These are the real Los Gatos Schools zip codes.
As far as 1 and 2 are concerned, this is an old tried and true sales pitch for trying to catch the unsuspecting buyer into being represented in his search for homes by the agent in the open house. The fact of the matter is that sellers want their home on the open market before making a decision to accept an offer because that is the only real way they can gauge whether they are getting a fair price for their home.
Stay tuned. I am meeting with a seller in Los Gatos 95033 zip code on Sunday. If I obtain the listing, would you like me to tell you about it before I put it on the MLS?

You are a little remote out there. Overall the people in the Los Gatos mountains are wonderful, very few snobs, lots of people who care about their community and their neighbors. There are lots of activities for kids both at the Loma Prieta campus and downtown Los Gatos. Being so far out there you realize that you have to give up convenience for price. It looks like a very nice home on a nice lot at a very good price. I wish you the best!... more
