The activity was very intense last week in the world of San Carlos real estate, especially considering that we’re still in the final week of January, which is traditionally a slower month. But buyers really rolled up their sleeves and battled for the few homes that were on the market. 8 homes went into contract in the last 7 days, with the vast majority of them getting multiple offers.
That in itself is not a surprise, but the prices that some of these homes fetched will raise some eyebrows when they are posted in a few weeks. And the sheer strength of the offers that are being written (even the losing ones) is simply amazing. Suffice it to say that the new year has not brought any relief in pricing for homes in San Carlos. The game is definitely on.
Here are the details from last week:
