Poll: What Was the Most Expensive Neighborhood in San Carlos in 2010?
January 5, 2011
A few weeks ago, I created a poll where I asked you to guess which neighborhood in San Carlos sold the quickest on average in 2010. The result of that poll was certainly surprising to me — I know that I guessed incorrectly! So let's take another stab at San Carlos real estate trivia in 2010. This time, what do you think the most expensive neighborhood in San Carlos was in 2010?
This is a little bit tricky, because comparing homes in different neighborhoods in San Carlos is like comparing an apple to an orange. The homes down in the flats are generally smaller and older than the homes in the hills. So rather than compare the average sales price of the different neighborhoods, we will use the average price-per-square-foot as our metric. That's simply the ratio of the sales price to the square footage of the house, and it helps neutralize the difference in the sizes of the homes.
So what's your guess? Is it Alder Manor, Beverly Terrace, Clearfield Park, Cordes, El Sereno Corte (aka White Oaks), or Howard Park? If you need a map of these different regions, just click here: San Carlos Neighborhood Map. Look in the sidebar on the right side of the site for the poll, and register your guess! I'll publish the correct answer next week. Good luck!
