Price estimates - Los Altos Edition


#121

Where did they buy?


#122

two in Los altos, another in santa clara, another in San mateo or burlingame (i forgot), and one in mtv.


#123

All googlers? Looks like you guys really like the MV/LA area… With 3 down, less competition for you!


#124

All googlers, yes. we like MV/LA area - schools are good, it’s nearby. almost everywhere in LA/MV is < 15m away.


#125

What about PA and Menlo Park?


#126

the people who bought in LA didn’t want PA explicitly. One said PA schools are bad, the other wanted a large lot, which is rare in PA. > 10K sqft i mean.

MP schools are not as good, and traffic sucks at peak times.


#127

Looks like it will be LA for you! :slight_smile:


#128

Probably MV :slight_smile:


#129

Price drop. Due to creek?


#130

Yes, big flood hazard.


#131

Not a popular part of los altos, too.


#132

Curious on why not popular other than flooding?


#133

Foothill makes a lot of noise. In terms of popularity, as far as i can tell North > south > west of foothil.


#134

Too far from downtown.


#135

People living in Los Altos probably don’t care much for downtowns.


#136

There’s some kind of a “golden triangle” near downtown LA where RE prices are at a premium. Some agent told me about it but I forgot the exact boundaries. Definitely not anything west/south of Foothill for sure.


#137

Golden Triangle like selling drugs and stuff? :smile:


#138

Your mindset got poisoned too much by SF druggies…


#139

this is right!


#140

El Monte/Almond/San Antonio
There are some huge lots in that area and it is walking distance to downtown. Although there is nothing much going on in downtown, it is still desirable and prices are usually higher.
