What do houses cost in Silicon Valley?

What does it cost to live in Silicon Valley?

The cost of housing is probably the least fun thing about moving to the “south bay”.

In Santa Clara County: The average price of a home sold in this county is about $1 million and the median sale price of a home sold is about $1.25 million as of late 2015.

For a house in an area with good schools, the price tag starts at more like $1,200,000 for a smaller 3 bed, 2 bath house (in Cambrian with Union Schools as of early 2016).  Homes in Cupertino start at around $1.5 million or.  Want Saratoga with Saratoga Schools?  It will be well past $2 million.  If you want to “spot check” pricing, visit http://popehandy.rereport.com and check the various areas.

In San Mateo County: add about 20% to Santa Clara County (very general).

In Santa Cruz County: subtract about 20% from Santa Clara County prices.
