Looking for a 3-bedroom home in Belmont, San Carlos CA

By
Real Estate Agent with Compass CA DRE# 01215160

Even though it seems that inventory has increased, it remains hard to find a home to purchase in Belmont or San Carlos California. 

On our MLS today, Belmont has 20 active listings, 12 single family homes and 8 townhouses/condos. San Carlos has 23, 17 single family homes and 6 townhouses/condos.

I have a buyer actively looking for a 3 bedroom home in Belmont, or in the San Carlos area serviced by Carlmont High School where her children currently attend. 

Of the listing mentioned above:

  • Belmont has a total of 6 properties, 3 single family homes and 3 townhouses. Asking prices range from $1,295,000 to $1,588,000
  • San Carlos has only 4 3-bedroom properties that meet the school criteria, ranging in price from $1,495,000 to $2,499,000.

Buyers and their real estate agents must be diligent, have their pre-approval ready to go, and get ready to jump as soon as a suitable place comes on the market. Patience is also required. It's a tough balancing act.

Good morning, Lottie... I feel your pain... we have it here in parts of our region, as well, with some areas having barely 1.5 months of inventory.

Lottie great job in the way you presented the data.  I still can't get over the prices.

It's hard, isn't it Nina Hollander? We'll see what we can find; I think parameters will need to be adjusted for the buyer to be successful.

The prices are very difficult, indeed, George Souto - it's not easy being a buyer these days.

Oh, it sounds like you're prepping for a bidding war, Lottie! Thankfully right now, we have a good balance of those - under $400K tends to go quickly and with multiple Offers and $400K and above seem to linger a bit. 

However, I had a $1M buyer yesterday that toured a home that was 4 days on the market and after we toured, I phoned the agent to ask questions in preparation for an Offer. She had neglected to change the listing to pending in MLS and hadn't bothered to let us know prior to the showing that it had gone under Contract 3 days ago! Back to square-one but, sadly, this perfect house that checked all of their boxes is not available at the moment. 

Good luck with your Belmont, San Carlos CA buyer, Lottie!

Hi Debe Maxwell, CRS - it sounds like your real estate market in Charlotte NC is very robust. It's frustrating when a ready buyer losing out in the way you described. Hopefully another fabulous place will come on soon, one your buyer likes even better than the one that got away.
