Silicon Valley’s most affordable homes – what do they cost?

What does it really cost to buy a house in Silicon Valley?  In Santa Clara County, the median sale price of houses is $1 million (May 2015) and the average sale price is just about $1,300,000.  So you know it can’t be easy – these are for the whole county, not the areas with the best commutes, best schools, most charm, etc.    And it’s worse if you go north, and into San Mateo County, where the median sale price is $1,325,000 and the average sale price is $1,660,000?  (Please visit my RE REPORT for information on Silicon Valley real estate statistics. It is automatically updated each month.)

Today I’ll use the Altos Research charts to show the median LIST PRICES (sales prices often a little higher) of homes for sale in several Silicon Valley communities – just a sampling, not all of them, and then we’ll look at the median list price of just the lowest priced homes – those in the bottom 25% of pricing.  Please note that the charts will be AUTOMATICALLY UPDATED each week, so this article should remain current.

The high tech epicenters: Palo Alto, Mountain View, Sunnyvale and Cupertino

Below please note the median list price of homes in the super highly desirable areas of technology intensity. These areas are always “sky high” relative to the rest of Santa Clara County (Palo Alto and Cupertino are noted for their exceptionally high scoring public schools, and Palo Alto has a very bustling, fun downtown area).

Next, what is the least you might expect to pay for houses in these same areas?  Here’s a glance at the least expensive single family home segments. Palo Alto is just a hair under $1.95 million (these are likely mostly “fixers”), Cupertino comes in at $1.3 million, Mountain View again close behind at just barely under $1.3 million and Sunnyvale offers its most affordable homes at about $775 – $800k.
