Heading into the Holidays.
We are now less than two weeks from Thanksgiving, and the inventory of homes for sale in San Carlos is dropping like the evening temperature. In a real estate year that seems to shrug off the calendar, homes are still getting snapped up at a frantic pace even this late in the season. As of this morning, there are only 11 homes for sale across the entire town. That number actually dropped well below 10 this weekend , which briefly put us at the lowest level of the entire year.
Sellers are warming to the fact that (for the right house) they can put their home on the market this late in the year and still have a horde of buyers beating a path to their door. This doesn’t mean it’s the right decision for every seller, and some will rightfully opt to wait until the Spring market of 2014 to list their homes. But when you realize that there’s not a single home for sale in all of White Oaks or Oak Park right now, you simply can’t ask for more favorable conditions to sell your home.
Here are the numbers for last week…
