2012 has arrived and with the new year I am launching a new blog format that I hope is easier for readers to navigate. In February I will start my Spring Fling series which features a close up look at several popular San Francisco Mid-Peninsula communities.
Our market is very brisk and I will continue my monthly posts updating my readers on Months Supply Inventory Data .
I hope you enjoy my new format and I look forward to hearing from you. Happy New Year!
“Tax credits sparked a big jump in home sales last month, as first-time buyers took advantage of low prices and interest rates.
But the longer-term housing outlook remains clouded, with a large inventory of foreclosed homes expected to hit the market later this year.”
The jury is still out regarding the overall outlook for the San Francisco metro area ;however, the article went on to note the following:
“Among metro areas with relatively low rates of delinquent borrowers and for-sale inventories: Boston, Denver, Dallas, Houston, Minneapolis, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.”
The market may be in a transitional period with Federal Tax credits for qualifying homebuyers set to expire on April 30 (property must be in contract by April 30 to qualify).
At the end of the day, job growth and economic factors will determine which metro areas continue to rebound while other areas continue to struggle with high rates of foreclosures. The San Francisco Peninsula real estate market is marked by limited land for development, proximity to San Francisco and of course, Silicon Valley. As we reflect on the first quarter of this year, the question remains : Is the glass half-empty or half-full?

Today’s blog takes a look at White Oaks in San Carlos Ca. Our Multiple Listing Service indicates a very active market. As of todays date there is one active listing in this area listed at $1,199,950. There are five pendings per the MLS with an average list price of $981,283.(Information deemed accurate but not guaranteed)
The City of San Carlos is currently facing a budget deficit estimated to be close to 3.5 million dollars. Closing this gap is proving painful and proposed remedies range from turning off lights to outsourcing police and fire department services.
Often compared to the fictional small town known as “Mayberry”, San Carlos enjoys a small town feel with all the conveniences associated with its location on the San Francisco Peninsula. . The area known as White Oaks is popular among buyers attracted to its tree lined streets and White Oak Elementary School.
If you are looking for distinctive architecture and tree lined streets the Mt. Carmel area of Redwood City may be the place for you. Homes in this area can range from Spanish style bungalows to larger ranch style homes. Located north of Jefferson and west of El Camino, this area offers an attractive alternative to Allied Arts or the Willows in Menlo Park. Stafford Park located at Lowell and Hopkins is a popular park with the locals. Currently our Multiple Listing Service indicates 5 active (class one single family home) listings in this area with an average list price of $969,800. There are 5 pending sales reported with an average list price of $972,000. (Info deemed reliable but may not reflect sales not reported to MLS)
The Mt. Carmel area is within walking or biking distance to downtown Redwood City which is currently being revitalized by downtown redevelopment and the numerous restaurants, art galleries and movie theatre which draw a crowd.
Next week, my blog will continue north to San Carlos. I will then take a look at North Los Altos, Downtown Palo Alto and Woodside Glens in Woodside. Have a wonderful weekend. See you next week.
