Out each window of this single story, 2,500 sq. ft. home with 3 bedrooms 2 baths and 2 – 1/2 baths, with separate dining, family and living rooms, are spectacular views!  Even the extra wide, 3 car garage has plenty of windows to capture the views and flood it with natural light.

When you step inside 352 Orchard Hill Rd. you are standing on colorful, wood finish tile, and looking up at a cathedral ceiling, beautiful chandelier and crown molding. Leaving the foyer the remarkable kitchen becomes the favorite spot. Custom cabinetry has under cabinet lighting which shins down on beautiful slab granite counter tops; the commercial, stainless steel 6 burner gas stove and double ovens are one of the two center pieces.  The other is the copper apron sink and faucets.

Both the family and living rooms have their own raised fireplace.  While both have coved ceilings the living room has craftsman molding around the highest reach of its ceiling.

The guest bathroom has a sky light and the master suite bathroom has a jetted, sunken tub and, again remarkable views.  The master suite has a tastefully finished brick backdrop to its own “fireplace”.  A short stroll from the master suite takes you the sunken, hot tub and its octagon building.

Home Prices in Our Bay Areas

Here is a quick glance, one page summary of year-over-year values for of our Bay Areas.

The median prices increased slightly in Santa Clara County (up 9%) and Monterey County (up 6%) but dropped 1% in San Benito County.

At the bottom of the summary page we see some indicators which suggest San Benito County values may rise in 2015: Inventory of homes for sale increased 14% 9/13 to 9/14 which is one of the causes of the median price to drop. However, the Days on Market (DOM) dropped a whopping 46%!  Since homes sold significantly faster year-over-year we may see San Benito County single family prices rise next year.

With one eye on these opaque indicators and one on “the holidays” disengagement many get caught up in – a shrewd buyer should buy a home before the year is out. And, with interest rates around 4% for a home loan, you could be one of the few others admire in the future: “You bought at the end 2014?  You really ‘lucked’ out”.

Why not text, email or call me?  With your answers to 4 simple questions I will be able to compute for you how much of a home you can qualify for and provide you with a list of those homes in your price range.

“Happy (Holiday) shopping”.
