A Strong December.
A big statement about the strength of this real estate market can be found by simply looking at the Pending Sales section of this weekly post. The average time it took to sell the 5 homes that went pending last week was only 5 days. As we discussed last week in the three-part series about the 2014 market, smart sellers have figured out this year that the best time to sell is when there’s the least amount of inventory — not by what the calendar may suggest. And buyers are proving them right by snapping up whatever they can get when inventory is this lean.
As of this morning, there are only 8 single-family homes for sale in all of San Carlos. That number will likely drop even further this week as a few of these listings are scheduled to take offers.
Here are the details from last week…
