The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 1/30/2017.

by Chuck Gillooley

If there’s a takeaway from the first month of 2017, it’s this:  List your home in January.  Seriously.  I have preached this advice many times on the blog before — listing your home in January is ideal because the buyers are ready to buy, and you essentially have no competition. This was evident with the turnout that we had for my listing at 1723 Alameda, which had 8 offers and sold in 6 days, and also at my listing on 1031 Vera Avenue in Redwood City (which has 24 disclosure packet requests in just two days). There seems to be a renewed sense of urgency with home buyers in 2017 that was missing for the entire second half of 2016. Maybe it’s the fact that interest rates are increasing, or that buyers are feeling more bullish about the economy. It certainly doesn’t hurt that the Dow Jones Industrial Average has crushed the 20,000 mark for the first time.

But whatever is the catalyst, there are a lot of very well qualified and active buyers in the market right now, and the few sellers who took the leap of faith to list their homes in January are reaping a significant windfall. It’s still not too late for sellers to benefit from this severe imbalance of buyers and available homes.  While the rate of new listings will start to climb steadily after Super Bowl Sunday, there will still be more buyers than there are available homes to buy for the next few months. We can get a home ready to sell in about a week, so if you’re still on the fence….let’s talk.

And if you’re thinking longer term to sell your home, January has proven time and time again to be a great month to sell.

Here is a look at last week’s numbers:
