Location, location, location … That’s the first thing that draws many residents to Rex Manor, a small 74-acre Mountain Shadows suburb north of Central Expressway, east of Monta Loma and west of North Whisman. Most residents find Rex Manor is a 15-minute walk from work, school, dining, shopping, entertainment and everything else they could want. When they move into the neighborhood, they discover it’s not only conveniently located, but it’s also charming, serene and friendly. Minutes from Google, Highway 101, Stanford University, San Francisco, San Jose, and Silicon Valley, this desirable neighborhood is providing a robust realty springboard for investors and homeowners alike.
The Silicon Valley is notoriously transient, yet Rex Manor has largely bucked that trend. As the saying goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” When people discover living in Rex Manor delivers all they’re looking for in a home, such as a great location, character, friendly neighbors and increasing property value, they often have no compelling reason to leave. Consequently, residents include a mix of older residents who purchased their homes in the 1950s and 1960s when the neighborhood was built and never moved, as well as young singles and families – a portion of which are employed by Google. Many of the original ranch-style homes have been upgraded and remodeled but maintain their 1960s character.
One reason to consider investing in the Rex Manor real estate market is it’s especially inviting to a key demographic that buys single-family homes: families. At the heart of the community is Stevenson Park, home to basketball and tennis courts, softball fields, playground equipment, walking trails and a huge grassy lawn ideal for picnicking and kite flying. One bonus? The park has restrooms! Throughout Rex Manor, there are sidewalks shaded by mature palm and fruit trees, making morning and evening strolls inviting. Thanks to traffic circles and lack of through streets, speeding isn’t usually an issue in this quiet community.
If you’re contemplating buying a home in the Mountain View area, there’s a compelling reason why you should invest in Rex Manor real estate. Many Rex Manor homes are original, but recently, there has been an influx of builders purchasing homes in less-than-stellar condition, renovating them or tearing them down and building new homes. These improvements only add to already healthy property values in this highly sought after community.
