Mark Burns answered:
It depends on the location and other important factors.

Do you have Monta Vista, Cupertino, or Homestead High?

How big is the lot?

There are a lot of other questions to be answered before a value is determined.

If you are purchasing a home the Natural Hazard Disclosure will address whether the property is within a liquefaction zone.

Liquefaction can cause damage to structures in several ways. Buildings whose foundations bear directly on sand which liquefies will experience a sudden loss of support, causes irregular settlements in the area liquefied, which can damage buildings and break underground utility lines. Pipelines and ducts may float up through the liquefied sand. Sand boils can erupt into buildings through utility openings, and may allow water to damage the structure or electrical systems. Soil liquefaction can also cause slope failures. Soil liquefaction was a major factor in the destruction in San Francisco's Marina District during the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake.

I hope this helps.

Snowshoed I know a couple of brokers who are liscenced appraisers and brokers. The ones that I know would risk their liscence on a bad or fraudulent apparaisal. As for the appraiser not returning your call you are not their client and without permission they can not talk to you about the appraisal. ... more

Hi Kris,

Congratulations! I would recommend Golden State Builders. When quoting the remodel of my own home, I found their pricing to be right in the middle, not the lowest and not the highest. I was extremely satisified with the end product, their professionalism and they finished only a week off schedule.

Here is a link to their website:

Or give Corey Farr a call at 408-287-1221.

Golden State Builders has been the only general contractor (and I have worked with three) that I will call again to work on my home.

Good Luck!

Well, you can go on craigslist, the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) website and look for yourself. There is also the San Jose Mercury News newspaper. Or you can contact a real estate agent and discuss your needs and requirements and when you come out here, the agent can show you what is available.

Best regards,

I love Rancho for it's obvious upside. The rest of Cupertino has become very expensive - Rancho is one of the last "affordable" areas. This regentrification of the neighborhood will continue to raise the school scores at Cupertino High. Also, the tearing down of the 1950s homes is probably at about 50% of the whole neighborhood now. More and more remodels and rebuilds will start to turn the neighborhood to a critical mass number at which point prices will then start to shoot up. Good place to bet on for the next 10 years. ... more
