The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 7-23-11.

San Carlos Real Estate Summary.

We spent a fair amount of space on the site last week discussing pricing trends in San Carlos and specifically in the White Oaks neighborhood (look for additional neighborhoods next week).    One additional datapoint that was not discussed in that analysis is how homes are selling compared to their original list price.    In the last few weeks, as we’ve noted in the tables below, the majority of homes have been selling below their original list price — this week, 2/3 of the homes that closed did not fetch that price point, with the average sale fetching only about 96% of the price it was originally listed for.   That’s still a respectable number for other regions, but a little low by San Carlos standards.

Here’s a quick snapshot of the inventory of San Carlos single family homes as of 7-23-2011.

Inventory 7-23-11 Prior Week
Active Listings 51 52 (-1.9%)

The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 7-16-11.

San Carlos Real Estate Summary.

Summer is in full swing in San Carlos, but you’d never know it by the weather!  The real estate market is in cruise-mode now, as you might expect in the summer months.  The number of available homes tends to drop, as fewer people put their homes on the market in July and August — that trend is certainly holding true, as the inventory dropped by over 10% just this week.   Also worth noting;  of the 9 home sales that closed this week, a whopping 78% were purchased below the original list price.   This is certainly in line with the trends we discussed in the mid-year report earlier this week.

Here’s a quick snapshot of the inventory of San Carlos single family homes as of 7-16-2011:

Inventory 7-16-11 Prior Week
Active Listings 52 58 (-10.3%)
Average Price of Active Listings $1,034,669
Average DOM of Active Listings 65 74
No. of Homes Pending Sale
43 47 (-8.5%)
Ratio of Active:Pending 1.2 : 1 1.2 : 1

The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 7-9-11.

calendar4

Summary.

It’s the first week of July, and that means the first half of the year is over already!  It’s amazing how fast it flew by.   San Carlos experienced a very healthy first half of the year for home sales — stay tuned this later week when I publish my mid-year report with all of the details.  But for this past week, the market behaved about as one would expect for the first week of July — not a lot of new listings, and the pending sale activity is steady, if not spectacular.  This lazy tradition happens virtually each year in July and August as buyers and sellers tend to de-focus take a short breather to get in some vacation time.

Here’s a quick snapshot of the inventory of San Carlos single family homes as of 7-9-2011:

Inventory 7-9-11 Prior Week
Active Listings 58 62 (-6.5%)
Average DOM of Active Listings 74 74
Homes in Contract 47 47 (0%)
Ratio of Active:Pending 1.2 : 1 1.3 : 1

The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 7-2-11.

calendar7

Summary.

As one might expect for the week heading into the 4th of July holiday, the tempo of the San Carlos market backed off a bit.  The few agents I spoke with who were holding their listings open over the weekend reported a light turnout, which is to be expected with so many people out of town.   Of course, it didn’t help matters that the mercury touched 100 degrees in San Carlos on Sunday either.   Activity should pick back up next week as entry level buyers scurry to get into contract before the hi-balance conforming loan limits expire in the next 2 months.

Here’s a quick snapshot of the inventory of San Carlos single family homes as of 7-2-2011:

Inventory 7-2-11 Prior Week
Active Listings 62 60 (+3.3%)

The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 6-25-11.

calendar5

Summary.

There were a several key indicators from this past week’s data that show that the San Carlos market continues to sizzle as we head into summer.   First, looking at this week’s pending sales, half of the eight homes that went into contract were on the market for only 2 weeks or less.    Second, 2/3 of the homes that closed escrow during the week sold at (or above) list price.    And finally,  all of the homes that sold this past week were on the market for an average of only 12 days.  Yes, the San Carlos real estate market continues to sizzle.

Here’s a quick snapshot of the inventory of San Carlos single family homes as of 6-25-2011:

Inventory 6-25-11 Prior Week
Active Listings 60 59 (+1.7%)
Average DOM of Active Listings 69 68

The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 6-18-11.

calendar7

Summary.

In the previous Week in Review report, we focused on a couple of  listings that took a long time get into contract.   This past week, it seemed to be exactly the opposite — 12 homes went pending sale, which is a very strong buying week for San Carlos.   But 3 of those 12 that sold this past week did so within the first week of being on the market, and at least two of those three got multiple offers.  That’s a pretty good indication that the demand is still very high in San Carlos right now, and that the torrid pace of home sales will continue for awhile.

Here’s a quick snapshot of the inventory of San Carlos single family homes as of 6-18-2011:

Inventory 6-18-11 Prior Week
Active Listings 59 62 (-5%)
Average DOM of Active Listings 68 62
Homes in Contract 51 48 (+6%)

The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 6-11-11.

calendar3

Summary.

There was a surprisingly strong surge of new listings this week, particularly toward the latter half.  11 new issues pushed the inventory count of home for sale back above the 60-mark again, which is always good news for buyers.  And there were quite a few closed escrows, which is to be expected after such a strong April and May.  The persistence award for this week goes to two listings:  700 Knoll Drive (215 days), and 152 Plymouth Avenue (350 days).  This once again proves that everything will sell… in due time.

Here’s a quick snapshot of the inventory of San Carlos single family homes as of 6-11-2011:

Active Listings 62 58 (+6.9%)
Average DOM of Active Listings 62 72

The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 6-4-11.

calendar7

Summary.

‘Balance’ is probably the best word to describe the San Carlos real estate market over the past few weeks.   No matter how busy (or not) it seems to get in a particular week, the number of new listings and the number of pending sales have been tracking very closely — and this week is no different.  Net result of this is that the inventory of available single-family homes in San Carlos has been oscillating closely around the 60-mark consistently for a number of weeks.   that balance is good for the market in general — the swings haven’t been so large as to cause a panic in either direction.

Here’s a quick snapshot of the inventory of San Carlos single family homes as of 6-4-2011:

Inventory 6-4-11 Prior Week
Active Listings 58 60 (-3.3%)
Average DOM of Active Listings 72 69
Homes in Contract 54 55 (-1.8%)
Ratio Active/Pending 1.1 : 1 1.1 : 1
