Home Buying in Gilroy>Question Details

Marc Perkel, Home Buyer in 95020

Is Gilroy a good place to live?

Asked by Marc Perkel, 95020 Mon Feb 2, 2009

I'm looking for a place to buy a home and was wondering how good of a place Gilroy was to live. I know this is kind of a general question but I visited there driving around and I kind of liked it. Just wondering what folks in the area have to say. Seems like there are good deals there. I'm looking for a single story home and a large lot or perhaps a plce with a few acres on the edge of town.

Hi Marc,
I've represented many buyers and sellers in Gilroy over the years and so am very familiar with the area. I also have many friends who call Gilroy home and are quite happy with the community and what it has to offer. There are beautiful acreage properties in Gilroy that have adjusted significantly downward in price just like the rest of the south Santa Clara County market.

If I were you, I wouldn't hesitate to look at the real estate that the Gilroy area has to offer. If you are looking for a single story on several acres, there are currently quite a few to look at. I just took a quick scan on MLS and there are 91 single family residences active on the market that are single story, on 1 or more acres and located in the south Santa Clara County area of Gilroy, San Martin and Morgan Hill. If I can help you with your search, please contact me.

Gilroy is the kind of country place close to a big City. Homes are very affordable in this market. Lots of
distressed homes looking looking for a solid offer.
Your wife certainly enjoy shopping at the outlets. You need to contact me directly for details. I am from the area and have the list.
