Located in Palo Alto, the geographic center of Silicon Valley

Working with a skilled real estate agent will save you time and money. Your real estate agent will find information about homes which you don't know exists. She has spent years building a network that provides her with ways to achieve your goals.

Years ago when paper was the main source of real estate information, it was necessary for a real estate agent to specialize in a small location. Now with multiple listing service information, and with all real estate agents active on the internet, computerized searches and conversations have turned local area specialization into a disadvantage. How can you get good information from someone who never looks outside of their neighborhood?

Juliana Lee's team agents are not just Palo Alto real estate agents, they are Silicon Valley real estate agents. By having team members be specialists for different tasks, they quickly develop superior, in depth, knowledge and skills which apply to all of Silicon Valley. Juliana Lee was a computerized Palo Alto real estate agent before the internet had widespread use in real estate sales. She lives in Palo Alto less than 100 yards from the Santa Clara County - San Mateo County border, the geographic center of Silicon Valley. She has worked and excelled at many of the top Palo Alto real estate companies as an agent.

Imagine hiring a home painter to paint your home. If you were to hire a painter who never looked outside of Palo Alto, you could have a painter who knew a lot about working with the city of Palo Alto building department. Unless that painter looked outside of Palo Alto, he would not know about techniques and trends that develop in other cities until they were adopted by painters covering wider areas. Knowing how to get information from a city building department is more important than always working with one building department.

A real estate agent who knows how to get "location specific information" and has wide area experience, will nearly always be more knowledgeable and successful helping you to achieve your goals than a real estate agent who always works with people in only one location.

Work with a Silicon Valley real estate agent to get top results achieving your goals. Give Juliana Lee a call, 650-857-1000, and chat about your goals with one of the best real estate agents, a #1 top real estate agent nationwide.

Silicon Valley Real Estate Market Trends

- detailed real estate trends updated through Dec 31, 2017

The first half of 2017 is seeing a repeat of the last 3 or 4 years. Almost all cities are showing fairly strong price appreciation, although slightly less than previous years. The number of sales is slowly declining. The typical seasonal variation showing most of the price increase occurring during the 1st quarter of the year seems to be happening again although it seems to have been delayed slightly possibly due to concerns about national political changes. The lowest monthly number of sales seems to again be near January.

A quick approximate view of Silicon Valley real estate price trends can be obtained by looking at the San Mateo County real estate market trends and the Santa Clara County real estate market trends. The highest ever average price for San Mateo County single family homes looks like it will be reached in Q2 of 2017: approximately $1.8M as of June 2017 ($925 per sq.ft., up 42%). The previous high of $1.27M ($650 per sf) was reached in Q3 of 2007. A weaker city such as Daly City is reaching its highest average price of about $900K ($650 per sq.ft., up 24%) in Q2 of 2017 versus the previous high of just over $750K ($525 per sq.ft.) in 2007.

Santa Clara County prices also show strong differences between cities. County wide, the highest average price of about$1.44M ($750 per sq.ft., up 32%) is being reached in Q2 of 2017. The previous peak of about $1.10M ($570 per sq.ft.) was reached in Q2 of 2007. However look at a city having strong growth such as Palo Alto. The high average price of about $3.4M ($1,550 per sq.ft., up 68%) is being reached in Q2 of 2017 while the previous high of about $2.0M ($920 per sf) was reached Q1 2007.

Looking for areas showing the least growth since the downturn tends to turn attention to cities further from high tech jobs such as Union City or cities with neighborhoods at the edge of Silicon Valley such as San Jose's Alum Rock neighborhood. It is quite likely these areas will show stronger growth if the economy keeps growing even slowly.

Cities dominated by the highest prices (Silicon Valley luxury homes) such as Atherton, Hillsborough, and Los Altos Hills tend to not follow the trends of wider areas. These cities were slower to appreciate until about late 2014 when prices increased sharply.

Silicon Valley & Palo Alto Real Estate Market Trends To Watch

One of the market trends which shows changes in the real estate market fairly clearly is sales price vs. list price. I make changes very visible by plotting average sales prices over list price in a green color and plot sales prices below list price in a red color. Some people believe in watching days on market but the seasonal variation can make it harder to spot changes.

Another aspect to consider is the type of employment opportunities in the city. If you compare Union City to Milpitas, price levels and trends were quite similar until the 2008 downturn. During the recovery, Milpitas prices have grown quicker. If you look at the city information you can see that Milpitas has more high tech employers than Union City.

A Little About Who Juliana Lee Is

I was recently (Jan 2012) asked to provide a short inspirational speech to a local association of Realtors. My speech covered early events in my life which highlighted my motivation to excel as a Silicon Valley Realtor. It was well received and hopefully provided encouragement to others.

Education has played an important part in my life and in the lives of many people. I believe strongly in supporting local public education.
