The Fall Push.
It was a little disconcerting for San Carlos home buyers last week when the inventory of homes for sale plummeted to 12. For a brief moment, there were thoughts that the fall market was going to maybe pack it in for the year since we’ve now hit mid-October. But we’re still well over a month before the Thanksgiving holiday, and that means there’s still plenty time for a home owner to sell their home and close the deal before the Thanksgiving break. And there are many in the business who feel that the real estate market this year is completely oblivious to any calendar anyway.
Well, as if almost on queue, nine new listings debuted in San Carlos this past week, making it a very busy weekend for house hunters — especially since open house hours were competing directly with the San Carlos Art and Wine Faire. This burst of new listings pushed the inventory back up to 19 homes for sale as of this morning. That’s still not a huge number for this time of the year, but a bit less frightening for sellers than 12.
Here are the numbers for last week…
