The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 10-8-11.

October 10, 2011

San Carlos Real Estate Summary.

The fall real estate market in San Carlos just keeps marching along to its own beat.  It seems as if even more buyers are out seriously looking now that interest rates have fallen to all-time lows (look for more on that in another post.)   Of the 5 homes that went pending this past week, 4 of them were on the market for less than 2 weeks, so things are still selling relatively quickly.    And with 8 new listings replenishing the homes that sold, buyers should have some good options to consider this week in ALL parts of San Carlos.

Here's a quick snapshot of the inventory of San Carlos single family homes as of 10-8-2011:
