The first half of 2016 will wrap up this week, and it has been another very interesting start to the real estate year. But interesting is simply par for the course for the real estate market in San Carlos. While home prices have continued to push to all-time highs, there is clearly a sign that the market is starting to push back on what has seemed like unabated growth for the past 5 years. We will touch on many of these stats in the half-yearly wrap up later this week.
One of the statistics that we will look at is the number of price reductions that have occurred in the local market, which has increased significantly this year compared to 2015. Looking at this past week as an example, two homes had to take significant price reductions to sell, while three others were only able to fetch the asking price. That’s quite a bit different from the normal 7-10% lift over the asking price that we’ve grown accustomed to seeing. More to follow on these trends…
