The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 12/12/22

December 13, 2022


The Recap:

Just when it seemed like the bottom was falling out of the local real estate market, new life seems to be being breathed back in. The open house for my listing at 873 Bauer Drive in San Carlos had over 250 people through over two days despite the stormy weather, and there were other homes in both San Carlos and Belmont that saw huge turnouts on their offer dates. There is probably a variety of reasons why this is happening. First, I believe buyers are wary of future increases in the mortgage interest rates and want to act now before it gets even more expensive to borrow money. Second, there's not a lot of inventory to choose from. And third, it seems as if the market may have over-corrected itself with the torrent of bad news and interest rate hikes, and buyers are looking to snap up properties at these reduced prices.

What IS apparent is that there is still a LOT of buyers out there looking for homes right now, and it's creating a lot more demand for housing in San Carlos and surrounding communities.

Here are the sales numbers from last week:
