January 2016 Home Sales in San Carlos.

March 8, 2016

A Summary.

In a manner somewhat similar to listing recap that I do at the end of every month, I'm starting another new series on the blog where I will compile a summary of the homes that sell each month in San Carlos. Along with this list will be a summary of the data that should reveal some interesting trends in our housing market. As with all of the data that is presented on the site, the data in this series only accounts for those homes sales that were reported on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) — private sales and those where the final sales price was withheld are excluded from the calculations.

So without further delay, below is a list of the single-family homes that closed escrow in January in San Carlos. In order to get the series caught up with the actual calendar, I will post February's sales later in the week.

For more information on any of the properties, simply click on the address of each to see the complete details.  I hope you find this information useful…
