The combination of low inventory and high buyer anxiety is pushing home prices to mind-numbing heights not only in San Carlos, but in some surrounding communities where you might not expect this type of behavior. One of those local neighborhoods is the Mount Carmel neighborhood of Redwood City, which in fairly close proximity to the southern most part of San Carlos.
Normally, there is a noticeable difference in pricing between equivalent sized homes in Mount Carmel, and anywhere in San Carlos. This is mostly due the to the fact that many buyers would eschew the picturesque Redwood City neighborhood and hold out for the higher ranked school district in San Carlos. But this past week, two 3-bedroom homes went pending in Mount Carmel at prices that certainly seem much more San Carlos-like than Redwood City. The gap between the two cities certainly seems to be closing.
Here are the details from last week:
