No , it is not ridiculous.

Cupertino is still under priced compared to other areas, there is still room for
price to go higher.

Best regards

Hi Envydd,

Yes or No depends on each particular property. If your question could be answered as easy as a math formula, then we do not need those real estate professionals. However, many so called professionals answer it as simply as a non-pro.

By asking for a %, you are assuming that every Seller used exactly the same rationalle in determining their LISTING PRICE:

Some Sellers like to use the theory that they can Price it HIGH and people will make an offer anyway: WRONG!
Other's will Price LOW and try to attract Multiple Offers, CORRECT!

The majority will be somewhere in the middle.

In addition, I don't believe that it so much of a PRICING issue and it is an URGENCY to find a house; so movement is increased.
Whether a particular house would have sold for less in September, is a matter for conjecture.

If it effects prices, at all, probably be for the better. You will actually be able to track it by watching sold prices and comps over the next 6 months or if you are working with a local Realtor, have them run the numbers and see. I would be interested to see/hear if it had any impact at all.

Best of luck.

It is definitely the right time to be LOOKING. As far as when is it the right time to buy, that depends on when you see the right house in the right neighborhood for YOU. Within Cupertino are many different neighborhoods. If you let me know which neighborhoods you are interested in, I can let you know the price trend. ... more

Check Captiola, Scotts Valley, Carmel to start with in other counties.
Check out Lake Tahoe area.

Also look into Campbell, Cambrian, Los Altos, Palo Alto.

If you are looking for income properties such as Multi Units in the Valley call

Your concern is noted, but an increase in class size to 30 should be just fine.
This will be a common problem, as time passes and taxes shrink or get diverted to more
Worthy cause.

Actually, prices should continue to rise, as there is a greater demand fueled by more students and
Not enough houses.

Let me know if you need help selling your home.

This is an interesting question. In all times of crisis I think it's most important to think about what we do have - our loved ones, our happiness and our health don't need to be dependent upon material possessions. Also, lending a helping hand is great for the spirit. I hope that those who have enough will start volunteering and helping others so that we can all become closer and better people. ... more

Dear Jack,
There are 4 properties currently available on Newson itself, 18860 being the most expensive one. Yes pricing has come down a bit in this area, as 2 out of the 4 have had reductions in price. It is a nice large home.....but, what are your PERSONAL needs for the price of a home that YOU are willing to pay?? There are so many many criterias, unique to each family and person. Since you have a Realtor, ask her/him to guide you through the entire home buying process by sittind down and fully understanding what you and your family needs, and then show you appropriate properties. What is good for you may not be so for someone else! Work with your Realtor closely, its a trust relationship, and they should do good by you!
Wishing you the Best for your home and future!

Actually, the stock market woes don't automatically and universally translate into less cash for everyone. Some people--especially ones whom have been burned in the past investing in stocks--opt to invest in other products like forex, real estate, etc.

I find the performance of the stock market--whether good or bad--to be mostly irrelevant. Of course, I realize, as the DOW continues to drop, that the opportunities to access cheap capitol will also decrease (which will be offset somewhat by the additional liquidity and a Fed-rate cut). Nevertheless, whether or not the DOW continues to drop, I always have the option to purchase real-estate using creative financing (which has nothing to do with the DOW).

Nina Daruwalla answered:
The rent depends on whether your property is a condo, town-home or a single family home. Also on the location, condition and schools that are attached to the property. One can advise you better on seeing the property itself. Check out for properties for rent in the same neighborhood for a better idea.
Need additional obligation-free advise, check out my website at:; or contact me on 408-7773823. Be well and safe.
