San Carlos Real Estate Summary.
It still amazes me how much over the asking price buyers are willing to go for the right home. This week captures what has been essentially happening most of the year — buyers are obliterating the asking prices of homes in competitive bids. This week, 1039 Hewitt Drive blew the lid off its list price by over $305,000 after getting over a dozen offers. And not to be overlooked, the buyers of 1719 White Oak Way paid a healthy $225,000 premium to make sure they go this house. Overall, the homes that closed escrow this week fetched an average of 115% of the asking price. That’s pretty amazing.
This just serves as a stark reminder to home buyers to bring their A-game to the table if they’re going to make San Carlos their next address, because the market is still incredibly strong.
Here are the numbers from last week:
