For the third straight week, the inventory of homes for sale in San Carlos remained virtually unchanged. Heading into this weekend we are sitting on a total of 21 homes and 5 condos for sale in the city — virtually identical numbers to last week. But there are some great new options to see this weekend, and they are outlined below.
As we head into mid-August, look for the listing and sales activity to ramp up quite a bit, as the summer draws to a close and home buyers get back on task finding their new San Carlos residence. Sellers know that the next 3 months will be a critical market window to hit if they want to get there home sold in 2014, so we should see a significant bump in inventory turns over the next 90 days.
Here are a few great homes to see this weekend. Click on the address for more details and photos:
109 Windsor Drive – $1,698,000
Nestled in the trees on a very nice street in Devonshire Canyon, 109 Windsor Drive is a beautiful home that has that elusive 4th bedroom that every family seems to be looking for in San Carlos. This is a very spacious home, with 3,308 square feet of living space. The kitchen is nicely updated, and has a very open feel to it. What many families will love about this home is the back yard — it is large, flat, and nicely landscaped. It’s one of those characteristics that many buyers with small kids are holding out for. And if being within the Carlmont High School boundary is high on your list, you’re also covered there.
109 Windsor Drive is listed by Sam Pilli of Keller Williams, and will be open from 1:30-4:30 on both Saturday and Sunday.
928 Elm Street – $1,249,000
Location, location, location!! Being close to the lively, northern stretch of Laurel Street is very high on the priority list for many home buyers in San Carlos. That’s why when a home hits the market on the 900 – 1000 blocks of Elm Street, Rosewood Avenue, or Walnut Street, it gets everyone’s attention. This cozy section of Howard Park is simply one of the most sought after neighborhoods in all of San Carlos. The curb appeal and neighborhood feel of this area is second to none, so it’s no surprise that homes don’t hit the market very often in this area.
928 Elm Street is a charming 3BR/2BA Spanish-style home at approximately 1,310 square feet. If features an updated kitchen and completely remodeled bathrooms. Like many other homes on this block, it is situated on a flat, spacious 6,000 square foot lot, so expansion possibilities abound with this property. There are countless other beautiful homes along this street that have done just that, which is yet another reason why this neighborhood is so hot.
928 Elm Street is listed by Joyce Romeo of Intero Real Estate Service, and will be on open on both Saturday and Sunday from 1:30-4:00PM.
21 Hilltop Drive – $1,349,000: A nice 3BR/2BA home on a great San Carlos street. Huge garage! Listed by Lottie Kendall of Today Sothebys, it will be open on both Saturday and Sunday from 1:00-4:00 PM.
