Diving a little deeper into the San Jose Real Estate Market stats we come across Value Ranges. Value Ranges were invented by REality’s founder Leon d’Ancona in 1989 while working on his book “The Home Price Guide”. The formula proved that a “60%-25%-15%” breakdown is the right way to determine price value ranges in North America.

It works this way: We look at all home prices and divide them into the first 60% “starter” the next 25% “move-up” and the last 15% “luxury”. You will notice that usually, “luxury” represents only 15% of the units sold, but has 30% of the value in a given market.
