What's Happening In Cambrian, CA

Real estate, of course!  This quiet and much desired mature neighborhood in southwest San Jose continues to be an attractive place to live and enjoy.   Primarily encompassing the zip codes 95124 and 95118, it is a mixture of medium aged homes and condos known for its friendly communities, good schools, parks, safe areas, and easy access to the commute and Silicon Valley jobs.  

Why Cambrian? 

Cambrian San Jose is adjacent to the foothills and mountains, as well and their pricey neighbor cousins, Almaden Valley, Los Gatos, Willow Glen and Campbell.  Known for their neighborhoods, schools and proximity to the foothills, the Cambrian community is also close to many popular venues, including the Oakridge Mall, Santana Row, Valley Fair, Almaden Shopping Plaza and the Paseo of Saratoga Shopping Center.  It is also near exceptionally charming and quaint downtown hot spots in Los Gatos, Campbell, Willow Glen, Saratoga, and Downtown San Jose, where you can dine, shop and stroll in some of the wonderful establishments while you're in town and  thus making this a great place to live.   


Cambrian Home Values

Home prices have generally been rising for the past ten years in Silicon Valley, and Cambrian has been following suit and holding steady with a good surge in property value as well.  The most popular price range is $1.2 million - $1.4 million at this time as seen in the lower left graph.   As of this writing, the median sales price of the sold Cambrian homes is $1,315,000 for the month of March 2019, and they went into contract in an average of 22 days, which is still a good fast pace.  While not as super fast as the first half of last year, it is still considered a strong fast market by historical standards.  In the month of February 2019, the median sales price was $1,100,000 and selling in 17 days.  Finally, last year in March 2018, the median sold home price was $1,435,944  and sold in 9 days on average.  Notice the strong ten year trend on the graph below on the right.  I am expecting a more modestly good activity in April 2019  for the year so we will see what transpires.  Be sure to click the following link to see the current homes for sale in Cambrian, and come back often as this list is changing daily.
