In a rapidly changing world like ours, it’s only natural there is some nostalgia for simpler, more familiar times. After all, no change comes without cost, some of which many don’t begin to calculate until they are raising children or finally have time to slow down and focus on living, rather than on career pressures. A lot of the investing in Gemello, Mountain View real estate by residential home buyers is driven by people who appreciate the traditional, classic American lifestyle. That lifestyle is what sets the Gemello neighborhood of Mountain View apart from the others in the area. Located in the bullseye of Silicon Valley, within a few miles of Stanford University and walking distance to the most famous company in the world, Google, Mountain View, CA is an international magnet of desirability.
It’s a pattern centuries old. Young adults are often all about progress and change. However, once they have children, start to become established in their careers and begin to achieve financial secure, that affection for radical change or, at least, their comfort with it, begins to fade. They acquire a new-found appreciation for traditional values, lifestyles and goals, often becoming markedly more conservative in their financial and lifestyle values. Many of the young professionals with children buying homes cite among their reasons to live in Gemello the ability to offer their children the sort of childhood that used to be far more common than it is today.
These professional parents want their children to grow up in small, safe, tight-knit neighborhoods with quality local schools and recreation. They want the neighborhood park where children can play and make neighborhood friends and the quiet streets where kids can walk or ride their bikes to their friends’ houses. In short, they want them to have the freedom to be children, instead of always having to be on the alert for potential problems and dangers. Life in in the classic and traditional neighborhood of Gemello, with its well-spaced single family homes, truly is living the dream.
The early days of suburban living, the 1950s, when many of the homes in this neighborhood were originally built, presented an amazing opportunity for people to get out of crowded, cramped urban areas and live the American dream. For many, it was an idyllic lifestyle. There are residents who have lived in this neighborhood for generations and some who return after the demands of careers slow down. The neighborhood cafes, nearby downtown Mountain View and that early suburban lifestyle with community events is a major draw, inspiring investment not just in their own homes, but also in rental properties, helping to boost retirement income.
