My Notes

Recently remodeled craftsman-style home incorporates original charm with modern day finishes! Features bamboo flooring, french doors, gourmet kitchen with granite, remodeled bath, renovated back yard and 2-year old roof! Home is approximately 1,000 square feet (assessors office 884). Located a short distance to Japantown!

What I love about the home

Directly across the street from a beautifully landscaped public park with basketball, handball, and tennis courts. Short walk to library, public transportation, and shopping. Close proximity to Japan Town with lovely shops and restaurants. A short bike ride to San Jose State University and downtown. Pretty home with lots of outdoor living space including a large lawn, full grown trees, and patio area. Large, open kitchen and dining space for family gatherings. This home has lots of character.

Neighborhood: Downtown

Zillow predicts Downtown home values will increase 8% next year, compared to a 7.1% increase for San Jose as a whole. Among Downtown homes, this home is valued 5.4% less than the midpoint (median) home, but is valued 29.4% more per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Downtown, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 40.5% higher than in San Jose, and 50.5% less than the national average. This higher local number may prevent Downtown home values from rising as quickly as other regions in San Jose.
