This is the Free Market in it's most perfect form. Housing is a Commodity where there is currently more Demand than Supply. (At least in Silicon Valley)
Sellers sensibly sell to the best (NOT ALWAYS HIGHEST) Bidder.
"Week" Buyers drop out of the game.
Rising prices bring out more Sellers.
Prices stabilize and a period of calm ensues.
After a variable amount of time (often years) the cycle begins again, either upward or downward.

If you choose to continue play then you need to be aware of all the options available to year during this phase of the cycle, including the Pro's and Con's of dropping out.
As you are competing most of the time with professional investors you need to know the rules they play under. You need professional help.
Good luck
Bill

Dear Kumaresh,

Yes, Arbor Village seems to fall under Evergreen Elementary and Chaboya Middle, Evergreen Valley
High School. You need to call the district to verify since they keep changing the boundary map.
You can also visit my website to review the Evergreen Market Report or use "Find A Home" (connected to Pro-MLS) to research about Active Listings on the market.

Thanks and Best regards,

Thank you, Mary:

The address is undisclosed, therefore it is impossible to determine whether or not it is for rent.

The contact person does not have an active, valid Real Estate license.

The fact that the person that is advertising this property does not have an active, valid Real Estate License is a red flag.

Many scammers have been placing fake advertisements of property for rent that they do not own and do not have a written agreement with the owner of the property to rent that property.

The scammers then take your money for the deposit and prepaid rent and disappear with your money.

This is a particularly cruel hoax because you have lost your money for the deposit and prepaid rent and you now have no place to live.

I recommend before you deal with anyone or give them any money or information that you demand to see a copy of their Real Estate License first. Also, it is required that all Real Estate Agents put their DRE License number in their advertisements. If there is no DRE number in the advertisement, then the advertisement is probably a scam.

Good eye Dennis!

Yes, this one is also a scam rental and has been posted in many areas where local real estate is offered. Remember if it is too good to be true, it usually is not legitimate.

I've flagged this listing with Trulia.

Thanks,
Gace

What is your price range? What do you consider a "good district"? What are your needs?

Would you like to schedule a free, no obligation consultation to learn about buying a home in Santa Clara County? If so message me.

In the meantime, you can go to my website to get an idea of pricing for various areas.

Have an amazing day.

Hi Trulia San Jose,

In a highly competitive seller's market, specially where there is little inventory and a LOT of buyers, adding contingencies to you offer will weaken your offer. In today's market, a cash offer or approved loan offer, as-is sale, all contingencies removed and an offer among the top 3 offers will give you a very good chance of winning the bids.

Thanks

Hi tuanphung72,

For the that price range, the two "zip" codes you would want to search will most like be 95148 and 95121.

There aren't many choices in that price range, if you are shooting for Evergreen High School. I know the area pretty well, please call me if you need more help.

Thank you, for your question, Irena:

In Evergreen, the rent for a 3,000 square foot house is in the range of $3,500 to $4,500 per month, unfurnished, depending on the schools, age and condition of the house and the location in the Evergreen Area.

The current rental market is very competitive. There are very few rental homes of that size available and there is a large number of people who want them.

Whether you can change the color of the walls will depend on the landlord. Some will permit that, some will not.

For more information, you may call me at my cell phone: (408)509-6218

The colors that will work best for your home really require an inspection of the interior of your home.

In general light, neutral colors work best.

Homes that appear bright, generally have the best market appeal.

I recommend that you make an appointment with your REALTOR to view the interior of your home to get the best answer to your question.

Your best resource is to talk with a lender directly, because if you are writing an offer contingent upon financing, you will want a lender who can and will support your ability to close the loan. If you need references to my preferred lender, drop me a note. ... more

Rr --
The areas you mention have high scoring schools. Check out http://www.schoolperformancemaps.com for more detailed information on comparison.

The difference may be house prices. Currently Evergreen may be just slightly lower than Warm Springs.

Schools compare well. Now you factor in commute, convenience, age of house, and neighborhood desires.

Good luck,
CJ

Brian Gauldin answered:
From my experience, websites offering information on foreclosures or pre-foreclosures almost always provide you with outdated information, and usually for a fee. A Realtor can always give you accurate and updated information on foreclosed homes that are actively listed on the MLS. Your best bet in my opinion to search for homes in pre-foreclosure is to search the county's website (recorded documents) and search the keywords for such items as assignment (of a trustee), notice, or other relevant legal document titles which are filed during the pre-foreclosure process. ... more

Eric Nelson III answered:
Anore,

You may research this on your own with the county recorder's office. This requires a bit of leg work in that you have to physically go to the recorder's office with the property address and in turn rummage through the recorded info on the property. The search is free, but copies of any documents are not - there is a per page fee if you are interested.

Best,
