The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 8-4-12.

calendar2

San Carlos Real Estate Summary.

The San Carlos real estate market continues to power right through the summer months.  It was  pretty solid showing for the middle of August, with 4 new listings and 4 homes going into contract.  2360 Howard Avenue actually made both of those lists, as it was snapped up before the first open house.  So there indeed in strength in the market over $1.5M too.

As we approach mid-August and precursor to Labor Day weekend, look for more listings to hit the market as smart sellers look to get a jump on the fall market.  This late-season surge used to take place after Labor Day weekend, but now that school starts for most kids in August, the start of the fall market happens a bit sooner.

Here are the numbers for the week:

The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 7-28-12.

calendar5

San Carlos Real Estate Summary.

For the first time in quite a few weeks, the number of active listings is slightly higher than the number of pending sales (32 vs 30.)  This is more in line with a balanced real estate market — a ratio of 2 to 3 is more what you’d expect to see in a normal year.  We’ve been below 1 for much of 2012, as you’ve probably noticed in the table below.

The summer effect was definitely felt last week, and we’re getting ready to enter what is traditionally one of the slowest months in the real estate year.  Demand should continue to push home sales — it’s just a question of how many new listings will feed that demand.

The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 7-21-12.

San Carlos Real Estate Summary.

The real estate market in San Carlos continued to flex its muscle this past week, despite the fact that we’re smack in the middle of summer.  All but one of the homes that went pending last week were locked up inside of 2 weeks, with most still fetching multiple offers.  And home prices are still holding strong — this past week’s closed escrows were at 101% of their respective list price, on average.   It will be interesting to see what effect (if any) this has on the month of August, which is traditionally one of the slowest months of the year in San Carlos real estate.

The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 7-14-12.

calendar8

San Carlos Real Estate Summary.

It was a good week for new listings, especially considering that it’s in the middle of July, which is not typically a busy time for new issues. 9 new listings made their debut last week, which helped drive the inventory up back over 30 listings again.  Buyers remained on task again, with 4 homes going into to contract — and all 4 were on the market for less than two weeks, which confirms that properties are still moving briskly.

The start of the traditional fall real estate market is only 4 weeks away, and it appears that the market will remain relatively strong leading up to that point.

Here are the numbers for the week:

The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 7-7-12.

San Carlos Real Estate Summary.

Th pace of the real estate market in San Carlos has taken a little bit of a breather now that summer mode is in full swing.  It’s evident from looking everyone’s Facebook postings that many people have gotten out of Dodge for a few weeks.  Those that remain behind are certainly working the market though.  5 more homes went into contract this past week, which pushed our inventory below the 30 mark again.    There’s a significant number of those buyers who are still looking to establish root in their desired school district before the school year starts, so they will remain on task throughout the summer.

Here are the numbers for the week:

The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 6-30-12.

San Carlos Real Estate Summary.

It’s hard to believe, but the first half of 2012 is now officially behind us.  It has been a year that nobody in this industry could have predicted, and we’re still only halfway through it.  What were the first-half numbers like?  What’s in store for the second half?  We’ll dive into those numbers in a little more detail later this week, but for now suffice it to say that the first half finished the way it started – strong.   And there’s no indication that it’s going to change much in the second half.

Here are the numbers for the week:

The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 6-23-12.

calendar7

San Carlos Real Estate Summary.

A milestone was reached this week — for the first time in several months, there were as many homes listed on the market as there were pending sale.   If you’ve watched the stats in the table below, you now for much of the year that ratio has been below 1.0, which is uncommon in any market for such an extended period of time.  But this week, we finished up with 36 homes for sale and 36 homes pending sale.  This is a small step in the right direction toward a more balanced real estate market.   Perhaps over the summer months the inventory will continue to slowly build back to a normal level…  We’ll see.

The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 6-16-12.

calendar1

San Carlos Real Estate Summary.

The $2M street: Saint Francis Way in White Oaks had the distinction this week of having not only one, but two homes sell for over $2M.   Despite the red hot demand, it’s not very often that we see $2M sales in White Oaks – the last time it happened was when 2033 White Oak Way sold for $2,005,000 back in May of 2010.   But this week both 2054 Saint Francis and 1528 Saint Francis closed the same week above $2M — see the table below for all of the details.   This is a resounding statement to the desirability of San Carlos as much as it a testament to the buying power that’s being wielded in this market right now.   As more of the older homes in White Oaks get the type of makeover that these two did, you can probably expect to see more sales in this range down the road.
