The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 12/3/2018.

December 3, 2018

In trend that has been developing over the past few weeks, more than half of the homes that sold in San Carlos last week closed at prices that were below the original list price.  This, combined with numerous recent price reductions and cancellations, is very indicative of the relatively tepid real estate market that we're seeing as 2018 draws to a close.

Inventory remained nearly unchanged this week, with 20 homes being available for sale. The average number of days on the market for these homes now sits at an unusually high level of nearly 40 days.  Homes in the higher price ranges ($3M and up) are taking especially long to sell, which is probably to be expected since the high end of the real estate market always shows the signs of a weakening market first.

Here is a look at last week's numbers:
