Thanksgiving week is now over, and we are heading into the final month of 2015. It was predictably slow last week due to the holiday, and the numbers reflect that below. For the second straight week there were no new listings to hit the market in San Carlos, so the inventory of single-family homes for sale has now dropped to six, easily one of the lowest levels of the year for either. And with an average DOM of 54 days, these homes aren’t exactly fresh on the market, either. The townhouse and condo market isn’t faring much better, a there’s only a single unit on the market in the entire city.
Inventory levels should stay fairly low for the duration of 2015. Traditionally, most home sellers will not opt to test the market in December unless they absolutely need to sell. They will wait to list until early January after the completion of the holidays when home buyers are fully focused again on finding a home. We’ll know for certain very soon whether that trend will hold true for this year too, but I don’t expect a huge deviation from what you see right now.
Here’s the recap from last week:
