San Carlos Real Estate Summary.
Price per square foot is a topic that we’ll address later this week on the blog. It’s one of a few different ways to measure the relative affordability (or lack thereof) of housing in a particular area. Using this metric instead of average or median sales price sometimes makes more sense, because that it factors the size of the house out of the equation and provides you with a metric that can be compared to all homes in the area.
Ironically, the number that jumped out at me most in the data below is the price-per-square-foot of the homes that closed escrow this past week: $719/sq foot. As an average figure, this is pretty breathtaking when you consider that only a couple of years ago, the $600/foot threshold in San Carlos was really reserved for new construction or recently remodeled homes. Now, that milestone would be considered below average for any given week. More to follow on that topic later in the week.
Here are the numbers from last week:
