Hello Willow Glen residents:

Here is a quick update on the current short sales inventory in Willow Glen, San Jose CA.

As you know, the Willow Glen real estate market, along with many other real estate markets in San Jose and in Silicon Valley, is suffering from a severe lack of housing inventory. This trend applies to some extent to the short sales inventory.

However, for those of you looking for short sales listings in Willow Glen today, I was still able to identify 10 short sales listings, including 4 condos and townhomes.

4  1474 DARLENE AVE     ($609K)
5  2341 LINCOLN AVE     ($565K)
6   993 PREVOST ST     ($420K)

If you are interested in making an offer on any of those properties, you should know that the price of #2 and #5 has gone down recently.
