The combination of Easter and the final week of spring break seemed to keep the San Carlos home sellers on the sidelines this past week. While there were only 3 new single-family listings to debut and not a single condo or townhouse, the buyers who stayed in town kept the market jumping. 7 homes were put into contract, which has once again driven the available inventory of homes in San Carlos into the single-digit range. The active/pending ratio in San Carlos dropped to 0.25 — one of the lowest levels that I have seen in quite some time.
In a traditional year, the month of May is one of the most robust listing periods in year, as sellers rush to get their homes to the market before the Summer break is upon us. Home buyers are praying that this trend will happen again this year, because as of right now, there are only 9 homes to choose from in all of San Carlos – and that number will drop significantly next week without some new inventory to backfill.
Here are the details from last week:
