"Now is the time to ask sellers for concessions. We have a system that helps our buyers buy homes for less and with terms that work for them. Buyers are still buying, and we're still putting people into homes. Sellers need to sell and smart ones know that they have to give a little today. "This isn't April 2022 anymore. Inflation, higher rates, Stock uncertainty, higher cost of living, and Unemployment loom. This wasn't the case a few short months ago. Today if you need to sell, sell. If you need to buy, buy. Contact Info@abitano.com to learn how buyers are turning into homeowners on their terms today"
1 Traffic - San Jose is the 3rd larger city LA and San Diego is larger- by a lot! San Jose, and Santa Clara County is surrounded by the Silicon Valley which makes urban sprawl a little more difficult. It also means we’re packing in more people with the land that we have. It also means that traffic is almost as bad as LA- that said LA traffic is pretty much 24/7 where in San Jose, bad traffic is only really during commute times.
2 Earthquakes - yes we have earthquakes but not that often. Most of them are smaller- less than a 4.0 and you hardly feel them. Authorities seem to think we’re about due for a major earthquake soon. Don’t worry though, California won't sink into the ocean, it’ll just shake, rattle and roll, scare you a little bit. But then it’s over.
When you buy real estate, you’re offered earthquake insurance- it’s costly, and I’ll leave it up to you to decide to get it or not.
3 Parking - Parking isn’t bad but it’s not great. Especially on weekends and weeknights - no matter where you go. San Jose always has something going on, whether it’s a festival or some other kind of event, so plan around it, give yourself an extra 15 minutes in case there's traffic and enough time to find your parking spot.
There’s a great app you can use to find a spot in case you want to get ahead of the crowd. https://local.parkmobile.io/california/san-jose/
4 Wildfires- If you watch the news, you hear we have wildfires all up and down California- over the last almost a decade, we were in a drought and that has dried up a lot of california. San Jose does have grass fires and typically they’re put out pretty fast. But the big problem is air quality. When there's a bad fire going, and it could be 100’s of miles away, our air quality goes out the window.
It’s only for a few weeks and then we get back to normal. Most of the time we’re outside, and enjoying the great outdoors.
5 Expensive houses - houses are crazy expensive, but if you’re moving here because of a job - you’re better off buying instead of renting. When you rent, you’re subject to rent increases, bad landlords, and being kicked out when they decide to sell. Real Estate is a great investment and when you buy, you’ll enjoy seeing your property value go up probably a lot faster than where you’re coming from.
When the timing is right, jump in and take advantage of this great market.
So now let's jump in and talk about the 5 things I love about living in San Jose.
Moving to San Jose CA - THINGS I LOVE AND HATE ABOUT SAN JOSE
1. Day Trips San Jose is close to other cities and outdoor recreation that is hard to beat. About an hour, you can take a day trip to San Francisco, Berkeley, and the world-renowned Napa Valley wine region. The city is also a quick drive to beaches and only four hours to Yosemite. Located within 75 miles of the city are Monterey, Carmel, Pebble Beach and Santa Cruz, AND exploring the entire region is easy to do.
2 Jobs 1000’s of jobs available from working for big companies like google facebook or apple to working for starts up to everything in between- there are plenty of high paying jobs
3. Sports Sports fans will find a home in San Jose, which hosts the minor league SJ Giants! San Jose Sharks (National Hockey League) and San Jose Earthquakes (professional soccer). The city also has a women's roller derby team (Silicon Valley Roller Girls) and hosts events such as the Village Fest, Christmas in the Park, .
4. Weather: you can’t beat the weather in San Jose. Generally, the winters are mild, with occasional rainstorms. The summers can be warm, typically in the 80s & 90s, with the occasional heat wave. This summer was pretty warm we had 3-4 heat waves- the last one was a doozy, but you get over it, just stay inside until the heat breaks and then go outside and go to a park. It snowed only twice in the 44 years I’ve been in the area. The winters can be cold & rainy- but not dead of winter in Winnipeg!
5. Hockey! San Jose is a Hockey town-If you play hockey, or just want to throw on a pair of skates for an hour or two, you can always skate or play some pick up hockey San Jose ICE! San jose is home to 5 soon to be six ice rinks, and that’s not including San Jose’s Winter skating rink Downtown ICE’
