When the blog started, the only way someone could find out the sales price of a home was to wait three to four weeks until the sale was published in the local newspaper, or call their local Realtor to find out. Realizing this obvious shortcoming in data availability, Chuck Gillooley created the “San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review,” a post that runs every Monday on the site. This weekly article is a concise update on what happened in the San Carlos real estate market the prior week – which homes sold, the homes put into contract, and any new listings that hit the market. His hunch was correct because that weekly post garners the most views of any article on the site.

Leveraging his background in technology, he uses a lot of data when he write the posts on this site because San Carlos home buyers and sellers are a savvy bunch, and data is a key component of their decision-making criteria. But the key difference in the White Oaks Blog is that he takes the time to analyze the data and explain in simple terms what it means to you, and how it may impact you as an owner, buyer, or seller in San Carlos.
