Last week, we looked at the performance of the San Carlos real estate market for the first half of 2009 from an analytical perspective. But twice every year, I also like to take a look at the data from a “lighter” viewpoint. Last year when I wrote the Biggest, Smallest, Highest, and Lowest of 2008, I got quite a bit of positive feedback on it, so I decided to make it a semi-annual feature.
So without further delay, here are this year’s mid-year winners.
2048 Alma Street sold for $1,739,500
2239 Carmelita Drive sold for $760/square foot.
365 Old County Road sold for $420,000
42 Club Drive sold or $287/square foot.
(768 Chestnut Street actually came in lower at $211/square foot, but its square footage was the sum of 3 structures on the property.)
Biggest Home Sold
42 Club Drive (pictured just above) is 4,090 square feet.
Smallest Home Sold
347 Fairfield Drive and…
1035 Springfield Drive tied at 820 square feet. To put this in perspective, 5 of these homes would fit inside of one 42 Club Drive.
Most Above Original List Price
923 Elm Street sold for $1,150,000 or 10% above its original list price.
Most Below Original List Price
768 Chestnut Street sold for $1,125,000 which was 39% below its original list price.
I hope you enjoyed this different look at real estate in San Carlos. I’ll do it again at the end of the year, so we can determine which homes were the biggest and baddest for all of 2009.
