The week of the 4th of July holiday is normally a slow one for new listings, and this year’s occurrence was no exception — even despite the continued strong market in San Carlos. Last week yielded no new listings, which obviously makes sense because you sure don’t want the first open house to be on a weekend when nobody is around.
But the holiday week did not keep buyers off the street. 7 houses went into contract, and that took the inventory of available homes down a notch to 20 — still better than the Spring, but not the levels that buyers have enjoyed for the past few weeks. And if there isn’t another push of new listings in the coming weeks, that number will once again drop back down into the teens.
On the topic of inventory, take note in the numbers below that the average days on market (DOM) of homes on the market is now at 33 days. This is the first time that it has broken the 1-month barrier all year. This is a trend that has been increasing in the past few weeks, which seems to suggest that it’s taking homes a little longer to sell lately. That’s a number that I will certainly keep a close eye on in the coming weeks.
Here are the details from last week:
