As we head into the final full week of the year, the inventory of homes for sale in just about every community on the Peninsula has been pretty well picked over. San Carlos now only has 3 homes for sale in the entire city, and they have been on the market for a combined average of 93 days. Belmont has only 4 home for sale as well, while San Mateo has 12, and Redwood City has 25.
These are all remarkably low numbers, even when you consider where we are in the calendar year. I can’t recall a time when there were only 3 homes for sale in San Carlos – ever. But it’s important for buyers to not let this void of listings allow you to lose focus on the task at hand. As I’ve stated before, I believe the market will come charging out of the gate in early January, and faster than you can say “Happy New Year”, there will be quite a few more homes to choose from. Those buyers that remain on task over the holidays should be rewarded when the new year starts.
Happy Holidays from the White Oaks Blog! Here are the details from last week…
