Belwood, Belgatos, Surmont and nearby sales year to date

Real estate sales this year in the east Los Gatos areas including Surmont, Belgatos, Belwood of Los Gatos and homes close to Harwood but within the Los Gatos town boundaries have been small in number due to the extraordinarily tight inventory levels.  Below are the closed and pending sales as reported in the MLS for this calendar year so far.

Belwood, Belgatos, Surmont and nearby

Of the nine closed sales, 5 sold for more than list price – most or all of these were multiple offer situations.  The other four had a variety of situations: one was bank owned, one needed several hundred thousand in finishing work (there was no kitchen, there were no bathrooms, etc.).  The one on Alerche sold “off market” and “off mls”.

Nextdoor map as of Nov 17 2013Update on the Nextdoor.com private intranet for neighbors in the Surmont-Belgatos-Belwood and beyond areas – We launched our site  November 17th, 2011, and 2 months later, got up to 39 people (in 32 households). As of Nov 17, 2013, our 2 year anniversary, it was 317 members in 245 homes (see image at right). We are still growing and now have a roster of 321 neighbors (248 of 567 households) or 44% of households participating. Thank you to all who’ve been active in sharing news and inviting neighbors to join us!

For those who aren’t onboard and are wondering, what is Nextdoor all about?

This is a private, online social network site for neighbors sharing with neighbors things that matter to them. Often this includes issues and concerns that otherwise we wouldn’t know about, whether a problem (break ins, solicitors), a need (babysitters, gardeners, house cleaners), an alert (coyotes spotted, skunk problems) event or other positive happenings.

Many times, this is almost like a virtual “neighborhood watch”.

I do know that people worry about their information being public.  The system requires members to be verified, either by mail (free) or by phone (which requires a one cent charge to a credit card). This is done to insure that everyone in this private site is actually a neighbor – for everyone’s protection.  Also, you don’t have to share your email address or phone number, but of course you can if you choose.

Belwood-Belgatos area on Nextdoor.comThe Town of Los Gatos has embraced Nextdoor as a great way to facilitate communication and major town events are announced on this site also.
