The San Carlos Week In Review – 1/31/09…

by Chuck Gillooley

(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.) 

You’ll notice this week that I tweaked the format a little bit, just to freshen it up and make it more useful for you.  For the “New Listings” and “Back on the Market” sections, I am now using live links to the MLS instead of a static snapshot.  That means when you click on the address, it will give you a live update with the very latest info on the home. If you get a message back that says something to the effect like “Property Not Found,” that likely means the home is no longer for sale.    It could be sold, withdrawn, or expired.   If this happens and you want to find out more about that property, simply shoot me an email and I’ll track it down for you.

Here’s the scoop on what homes sold, and what new listings came on the market — click on the addresses for more details and photos:

  • Hey Chuck

    I would suggest using something a bit more sophisticated that simply $$/sq foot. Maybe you could plot $$/sq foot as a function of total square footage, and use the appropriate value for the size of home. Clearly, larger homes have lower $$/sq foot, but that does not make them better deals. Your BSEE background could come in useful for this…

    I totally agree with you. Price/square foot is not a linear relationship throughout all sized homes in San Carlos. The average right now is about $570/sq foot, but that changes dramatically at both ends of the extreme. Starter homes around ~ 1,000 square feet fetch closer to $750/sq foot, while the bigger homes > 3,000 square foot run $450/sq foot and less.

    I have indeed thought about doing some sort of graph the plots the relation of $$/sq foot with respect to home size. It’s not hard to set up — the big time sink is extracting the data from our archaic MLS software (which is in the top 3 worst design websites on the planet!)

    Thanks for your comment,
