Here’s a quick look at home prices by high school district. This is a great way to get a broad sense of where it’s more affordable or more costly to buy a home in Silicon Valley!
First, the median home prices by high school district for single family homes in Santa Clara County. (Click on the image to view a larger version). The SP/LP figure refers to the sale price to list price ratio. When it says 112 %, that means the home sold on average 12% over list price. Med DOM is the median Days on Market.
Within each of these high school districts, there are more and less expensive areas. In the Los Gatos-Saratoga Joint Union HSD, for instance, some homes are in Los Gatos, some in Monte Sereno, and some in Saratoga – some have views and acreage, some are more modest. The figures are very broad.
Next, the same data but for condominiums and townhouses in Santa Clara County. These are far more affordable, but still very costly.
