What To See This Weekend in San Carlos – 10/10/2014.
October 11, 2014
There will be a lot of local events competing for the attention of San Carlos home buyers this weekend — The San Carlos Art and Wine Faire is back this weekend for its 24th annual appearance. For you speed junkies, the Blue Angels take to the Bay Area skies again after a short hiatus in the ever-popular Fleet Week festivities up in San Francisco. And of course, there's the normal array of soccer games, shopping trips, etc..
For those home buyers who choose to stay and task and check out the local inventory, there are a few solid choices to check out in San Carlos. Ironically, all 3 of this week's choices are 4-bedroom homes — something that's usually an anomaly in a city that is dominated by 3-bedroom homes. And it's even more unusual considering how low the inventory has dropped yet again. As of this morning, the total number of single-family homes for sale in San Carlos dropped to 13 homes, and that number will likely drop before the weekend unless some new inventory comes online today. The townhouse/condo market is in no better shape, with only 4 units to choose from this weekend.
Both of these numbers are surprisingly low, since we are essentially at the midpoint of the Fall real estate market and one would expect a peak in new listings.
Here are a few great homes to see this weekend. Be sure to click on the address for more details and photos:
1028 Rosewood Avenue – $1,950,000
From everything that I've heard from hosting my own open houses over the past month, the flats of San Carlos is where everyone seems to want to be right now — the closer to downtown, the better. If that is indeed what you are looking for, then be sure to drop by my listing at 1028 Rosewood Avenue this Sunday. Not only is it pretty rare that a house comes up for sale on this stretch of Rosewood, but you also don't see homes this nicely finished on the market either. The sellers did a super job of preserving the circa-1926 heritage of the original home while blending modern amenities and a bunch of extra living space.
This home is much bigger that it appears when you first drive up. But with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths inside of 2,720 square feet of living space, this home can easily handle a large family or host a big dinner party. Gorgeous updated kitchen with huge granite slab, fully renovated bathrooms, and a massive master bedroom suite with soaring vaulted ceilings — this home has it all. Click here for the virtual tour. And let's not forget that it's literally a couple of blocks away from the extremely popular north stretch of Laurel Street.
1028 Rosewood Avenue will be open on Saturday and Sunday from 1-4 for its second and final open house weekend–make sure you see it before it's gone!
55 Sequoia Court – $1,699,999
Another 4-bedroom option to see this weekend is 55 55 Sequoia Court. This home is situated in the northern section of San Carlos just off Club Drive. For families with school aged children, you'll find that this is an ideal location since all three of the primary schools — Arundel Elementary, Tierra Linda Middle, and Carlmont High Schools — are just blocks away from home.
At 2,610 square feet this is a generously sized home, with 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms on a 5,096 square foot lot. It has lots of updates throughout, and provides you with another option for that seemingly elusive four bedroom home in San Carlos.
55 Sequoia Court is listed at $1,699,999 by Chris Frangos of Keller Williams, and will be on open on Sunday from 1:00-4:00PM.
