Lot is land locked. An access road needs to be built, and utilities need to be brought in from the street. Must take into account these expenses if considering this lot. Also, the lot is near Highway 280 and have some freeway noise. Form your own judgement knowing that these factors exist. ... more

In short, 24 hours for syndicated data (straight from the MLS) and immediately for manually entered listings. Agents can post listings themselves which often results in duplicate listings.

Your most accurate source of listing data is Realtor.com or MLS Listings which is the local listing service for Silicon Valley.

I would agree with the previous postings. It was either a family transfer where they retained the assessed value or it could be a foreclosure on a 2nd mortgage. I doubt the ladder greatly. ... more
