For anyone looking to buy a new home to live in Redwood City, it will be a search for a rare commodity. To date, out of the 624 home sales in Redwood City recorded on the multiple listing service for 2012, only 12 have been new homes – 8 detached, single homes and 4 townhouse/condominiums.Is that because new homes aren’t selling in Redwood City? To the contrary, out of the 80 homes currently listed for sale in Redwood City on the MLS, only 24 were built in 2012, and a mere 3 are currently under construction.When you subtract the 21 of those homes that are part of the 2 new Redwood City developments, that leaves a total of 3 new detached residences now available on the MLS. There are also at least 2 additional single homes under construction that are not currently on the MLS.
