Cupertino is a town in Santa Clara County, California, on the western side of the Santa Clara Valley, immediately west of San Jose, with portions reaching into the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains. As of the 2010 census, the population was 58,302.
It is known as Apple Park, the home of the corporate headquarters of Apple Inc.
Cupertino consists of several subdivisions, most of which have been created since the 1960s. About 1960, most of the contemporary properties of Cupertino were created. There are 224 Eichler houses, constructed during the 1950s, in the area between Stevens Creek Boulevard, Miller Avenue, Bollinger Road, and Lawrence Expressway. Among the oldest housing tracts are two of the newest areas of Cupertino. In the 1950s and before, Monta Vista and Rancho Rinconada were built outside the city’s limits. In 1999, Rancho Rinconada was annexed and, in 2004, the last portion of Monta Vista was annexed. The Seven Springs neighborhood is at the southwest tip of Cupertino and was built in the late 1980s. Rancho San Antonio Park surrounds the newest and most north-western community, Oak Valley, and was built around the turn of the millennium.
As of 2017, the majority of residential properties are multimillion-dollar homes, with the entry point into a single-family home in the Cupertino HS area at around $1.5 million, and the entry point in the Monta Vista HS area at $1.7 million, Cupertino is noted for its high house prices. Many smaller homes start at $1 million, medium-sized homes start at $2 million, and larger executive homes start at $2 million and can go up to $ 4 million as of today. However, due mainly to negligible lot sizes and the many common walls and areas, townhouses and condos with comparable square footage are comparatively less costly. Total real estate prices have doubled over the course of eight years since the last market collapse in 2009.
