(The “San Carlos Week in Review” is a series comprised of an occasional podcast, and a summary of new listings and home sales in San Carlos for the prior week. Between the two, you should get a great idea of what happened last week in San Carlos real estate.)
Welcome to the first full week of 2009! The kids are back in school, and everyone is back to work (hopefully everyone is still employed, that is…) January and February sales results will be closely watched by everyone, as these two months often give an indication of what’s in store for the year. I think early January is a great time to put a home on the market, since the Spring buying rush hasn’t hit full stride yet, and consequently your listing gets LOTS of attention. So what happened this week?
Here’s the scoop — click on the addresses for more details and photos.
