Many thanks to Sandra Miller for letting me know about this event.

Belwood, Belgatos, and Surmont home sales in 2015 year to date

Of the homes first listed for sale in the Belwood of Los Gatos, Belgatos, or Surmont subdivisions in 2015 so far, only one did not selll (it was pulled off after a month, which is about the time when a price reduction would likely be getting discussed). One other is currently under contract (contingencies are in place) and five homes have been sold and closed.

Belwood Sales 2015 to Aug 7

 

Overall, houses in this neighborhood have gone pending fairly quickly, with the average days on market being a brisk 9 for the five closed sales.  Homes sold so far are all selling over list price, and the average amount over is about 3% ($38,000).

(There was one other closing on Bacigalupi in January from a sale in December that I did not include since I was looking for sales that were ratified in 2015, but that home had 2448 SF and closed at $1,525,000 fyi.)

The odds are good that you could sell a home in this area without too much trouble in most cases.  In every market, though, there are some homes that don’t sell or do not sell quickly.  To learn more about that situation, please visit my Valley of Heart’s Delight blog and read this article:
