single family homes: San Mateo, Santa Clara counties-what's the market like? - 06/18/19 08:33 PM
We've been sensing a change in the real estate markets in many of our local towns in San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties, the counties south of San Francisco that make up the Silicon Valley. Not every property listed gets multiple offers; not every property sees sale prices far exceeding list prices, although both of those occur regularly.
We all have anecdotal stories, but let's take a look at the data from our Multiple Listing Service.
This first chart shows closed sales of single family homes in San Mateo County for 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 to date.
Next, we'll take a look at a … (5 comments)

My office, Today Sotheby's International Realty, is located downtown San Carlos, California. I am asked many times a week, "how's the market?"

single family homes: SOLD--we get results to please you in Redwood City, CA - 01/02/18 03:35 PM
Located in the highly desired Mt. Carmel neighborhood of Redwood City, across from lovely Our Lady of Mount Carmel school, 330 Grand Street closed escrow on the first business day of 2018.
In vintage condition, we marketed this home to builders and agents who work with builders, knowing it would be razed. It sold just days after notices went out about the opportunity, to an all-cash buyer, with no contingencies and terms to make life easy for the sellers. 
Seller wanted no open houses and was delighted to sell off market.
