The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 7/25/22

July 25, 2022


The Recap:

We are heading into the last full week of what has been a particularly lazy July in the San Carlos real estate market. For the second week in a row, only 1 home was put into contract during the entire week. This means that buyers are either not around, or they are being especially deliberate with their decision making process in this new market. Either way, the inventory of listings continues to creep upward.

The active to pending ratio, which compares the number of active listings to the number of homes pending sale, is commonly used to gauge the months of inventory that are on the market. When the San Carlos market is in a really busy phase, that ratio is more often below 1, signifying that homes are going into contract at a faster rate than new listings can arrive to replenish the inventory. Today, that ratio sits at 5.1, which is just quantitative evidence of the slowness of the market that we are already feeling.

Here are the sales numbers from last week:
