The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 3-19-11.

calendar3

Summary.

The cold and wet weather this week did little to cool off the red-hot real estate market in San Carlos.  Inventory moved quickly, as was highlighted by the 9-offer battle for 948 Rosewood Avenue.  And three of the homes that went into contract weren’t on the market for a full week before they were snapped up. Inventory varied widely during the week, oscillating between the high 40′s and low 50′s before settling in at 55 by week’s end.    This number is still low by comparison to a normal year, which is keeping the competition level high for new listings.

The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 3-12-11.

calendar8

Summary.

It was another good showing for new issues this week, with 8 new listings to choose from.    And buyers seem to be responding positively, as new open houses are reporting huge turnouts.    8 homes went into contract, thus keeping the overall inventory almost unchanged from the prior week.  And multiple offers are becoming more commonplace as more buyers are competing in this inventory-constrained environment.

The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 3-5-11.

calendar4

Summary.

Newer listings moved quickly again this past week.  Of the 6 homes that went in to contract, 5 of them were on the market for only 2 weeks or less.   Buyers are moving decisively on the right homes in this early-spring market, so if you’re actively looking for a home in San Carlos right now, be prepared (mentally and financially) to make quick some quick decisions once you find your ideal place.

There were 6 new listings to hit the market this past week, which is a respectable showing.  But to the dismay of home buyers who are keying in on the flatlands of San Carlos, only one of those listings was in Oak Park and there was absolutely nothing new in White Oaks Howard Park.

The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 2-26-11

calendar7

Summary.

The spring real estate market kicked into full gear this past week with 11 new listings hit the market, covering the spectrum from $650,000 to over $1.7M.    This brings some welcome relief to buyers who’ve had not much to choose from since the beginning of the year.    And more good news should be on the horizon — normal peak spring inventory runs between 60-70 homes, so in order to reach that plateau we should expect to a continued push of new listings in the coming weeks.

Another good sign of market strength is that some of the older inventory is starting to sell.  All four homes that went into contract this week had been on the market for between 2-4 months, which sometimes seems like an eternity in the San Carlos market.

The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 2-19-11

calendar

Summary.

Despite 8 new listings coming on the market this past week, the number of homes for sale in San Carlos actually dropped by 1.  That should give you a good indication of the level of activity in the San Carlos real estate market.  There was quite a bit going on beneath the surface this past week, that’s for sure.    With inventory being held in the mid 40′s (kind of like the weather this week) it doesn’t give buyers many options, and it makes new listings a very hot commodity.

The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 2-12-11

calendar1

Summary.

The sales momentum from last week carried over into this week, although not at such a torrid pace.  Five homes were sold this past week, with 1925 Belmont Avenue taking the cake for hotly contested sales.   This home sold with 6 offers after only 4 days on the market — without a single open house.    That makes a pretty strong statement about what may take to win in this market when you find the “right” home, and it’s the right home for others too.

Six new homes came onto the market, but the inventory is still pretty lean with only 45 homes for sale.     But all in all, it’s a promising start to the new year.

The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 2-5-11

calendar7

Summary.

After a fairly tepid month in January, the San Carlos real estate market seemed to jolt awake this week.  As we discussed in this post,  there was a flurry of home sales to kick this week off — and by the time of this post, ten homes had sold in San Carlos in just a single week.   While this type of surge is probably atypical, I don’t think it’s just a blip, either.   Between the recent spike in sales and the sheer number of buyers looking at homes in San Carlos right now, it seems indicative that a strong spring market is just around the corner.    It will be interesting to see what the Pending Sales total is at this time next week.

The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 1/29/11

calendar4

Summary.

The activity definitely notched up this past week.  There were more new listings and more homes sold than the prior week, which is a good sign.   And if there was any doubt that there are still buyers looking for a home in San Carlos today, that doubt was obliterated in my mind as nearly 100 people came through the first open house today at 133 Highland Avenue.     The combination of pent-up demand and lack of new inventory always makes January a surprisingly good month to put your home on the market in San Carlos.   And right now there’s a serious imbalance between those two figures in the San Carlos market.
