The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 11/14/22

November 14, 2022


The Recap:

Last week was an interesting case study on how twitchy our economy is right now. The slightest bit of good news regarding inflation caused the stock market to rocket upward for two straight sessions, marking the single biggest gain in over a year. Additionally, home mortgage interest rates are creeping lower ever so slightly. Two different loan agents emailed with with rates for jumbo 30-year fixed that were at 6.125% (they hit 7 a few weeks ago), and ARM rates are in the low 5% range. Maybe it's a coincidence, but 9 houses were put into contract last week in San Carlos, which is a huge increase from the last few week's averages. Or maybe it's the fact that buyers are starting to get serious about getting a home before the holidays rather than bargain hunting?

The sudden surge in buying activity dropped the inventory of homes for sale in San Carlos below 30 for the first time in a few weeks. As we get closer to the holidays, that number is going to drop as some listings take a breather. So if you're serious about finding a home in San Carlos this year, now is the time to act.

Here are the sales numbers from last week:
