The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 3/11/24

March 11, 2024


The Recap:

Low inventory continues to be the story in the San Carlos residential real estate market. There are simply not enough new listings to keep up with the demand, and that is driving inventory to unprecedented low levels for this time of year, and conversely keeping prices high. The houses that are closing are reaping huge premiums over their respective list prices and selling at near-record high levels.

As of this morning, there are only nine single family-homes for sale in San Carlos, which is about a third of where we should be in a normal March market. To make matters worse, the majority of those nine are “stale” listings, having been on the market for three weeks or longer. That further amplifies the fact that there just aren't many new listings for buyers to choose from, which you can see from the tables below. In the past two weeks, there have only been five new listings.

It's no wonder that buyers are getting discouraged again.

Here's what happened last week:
