"Nice, Overpriced Suburban Road"

Bachman Avenue, located practically in the center of downtown Los Gatos, has all the symptoms of a classic foothill street of this kind: niceish homes that are near a great downtown area and are subsequently grossly overpriced. Sure, they are nice, suburban homes, and one can walk to the restaurants and bars located nearby in this highly desirable towns, but no one in their right mind would pay the half million dollars plus that it takes to own property here.

This is a neighborhood where it truly makes more sense to rent than to buy, especially given the young crowd that frequents the nightlife scene here. Los Gatos really is a great town and is worthy of a high price tag - but perhaps not quite as overinflated as it is.
