I always like to comb through the data every week when I run these reports to look for particular numbers that stand out. There’s usually one or two that will raise an eyebrow, and this week is no exception.
The first number that jumped out at me was the average sold price in San Carlos last week, which was a a whopping $1,837,725. And that’s just the average price for the week, and it’s abnormally skewed by having a small data pool. There were 8 homes that closed escrow last week, which is a decent number for San Carlos, and half of them sold for $1.9M or higher.
Along the same theme, the second number that made me take notice was the average list price for a single-family home in San Carlos, which has now topped $1.8M. This 8% jump in the average list price in just a single week can be largely attributed to the addition of the $3M listing at 120 Wingate Avenue, but it’s still amazing to see how high home prices have climbed in San Carlos in just a few years. The City of Good Living is becoming an expensive place to live.
