The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 3-24-12.

San Carlos Real Estate Summary.

The numbers are simply mind-boggling for buyers looking to find a home in San Carlos.   22 active listings is an abnormally low number for any time of the year, but it’s unprecedented for the end of March.  And when you compare that to the 55 homes that are currently pending sale, the ratio of active to pending plummets to 0.4!   There are 2.5 times more homes pending sale than for sale in San Carlos right now.   As a point of reference, most communities never see a ratio below 1, and are frankly thrilled if they can get it down below 3.

If that’s not daunting enough, the average days on the market for homes that went pending this past week was 26, which is a reasonable number.  But if you take out just one home that took 185 days to sell, that average number drops to 12 days for the other 11 sales.   That means on average, you have less than 2 weeks to decide on a new listing once it hits the market.   In reality, you have less than a week, if you factor in the time it takes to prepare the offer.   Tough sledding for buyers these days, but it underscores the preparation and focus that’s required to be in this market right now.

Here are the numbers for this past week…
