The San Carlos Real Estate Week in Review: 6/10/24

June 10, 2024


The Recap:

The effects of the tight real estate market in San Carlos continue to be felt even as we head into the slower summer months. All six homes that closed escrow last week enjoyed 6-figure premiums over their respective asking prices, with one nearly topping $500K over.

You can attest these high prices to the continued lack of inventory. As of this morning, there are only 11 single-family homes for sale in all of San Carlos. A significant percentage of these homes have been on the market for at least 3 weeks, so that further amplifies the lack of new inventory to choose from in San Carlos.

Here's what happened last week:

    These prices just further reiterate why there is so little inventory. While I’d love to sell my home and buy something bigger and better, the only way I could do that would be to leave the bay area/state. All I could buy locally would be, at most, a similar house if not worse, and then I would lose my sub-3% mortgage rate and triple my property taxes. No thanks

    You hit the nail square on the head. Many other homeowners are in exactly the same position. Now add to that capital gains tax liability for selling and moving, and you see why so few houses are coming up for sale – which keeps prices obscenely high.
