Today marks the midway point in what has been arguably the strongest and most breathtaking year in San Carlos real estate in recent memory — possibly ever. 2014 is only halfway in the books, and the market is on a pace to shatter just about ever price record that one could think of. The tally at the end of the year will be hard to believe.
Tomorrow we head into what are usually the slow summer months of the year on the real estate calendar — July and August. Traditionally, the market takes a breather during these two months, and then picks up again in earnest in September. But while I believe the market is not going to maintain the breakneck pace that it set in the Spring, I don’t believe we’re going to experience the lull in July and August that we are accustomed to seeing. The right homes will still garner significant interest, but homes “on the fringe” may take a little bit longer to sell, which was a trend that I started to notice in the beginning of June.
Here are the details from last week:
