It was a busy week for Belmont real estate which was expected now that summer vacations are over and agents get back to work like everybody else.

Out of the gate there were seven new listings, two re-lists, seven pending sales and three homes closed escrow bringing the inventory of single family homes for sale to 47—just like last week.


Tahoe 1132 Tahoe 3 Bed 2 Bath 1,610 Sq Ft. listed for $899,000. This home was purchased in June of 2006 for $900,000 and it was a major dump back then. The new owner has done a lot to the home and although it’s not quite finished, it’s pretty nice—especially for $899,000. Put this one on your short list if you’re out this weekend.

925 Waltermire 3 bed 1 bath 1,120 Sq Ft home for $749,000. If you don’t mind living next door to Safeway this home could be for you. Better yet you can run a business out of it since it’s zoned commercial according to the listing agent.

Hillcrest 3410 Hillcrest Dr. 3 Bed 2 Bath 1,640 sq. ft. home for $849,000 is even better yet. It’s in great shape with a level yard. The street is busier than Tahoe but it costs a lot less too. Move-in condition and our BEST DEAL OF THE WEEK.

2827 San Juan 3 Bed 3 Bath 2,380 Sq. Ft. home for $630,500—no—that’s not a typo.  It’s an REO and there are no showings until 9/17 but drive by and you’ll want to at least take a peak. In its prime I used to drive by this house on my way home with it all lit up and wish I could see inside. It looks like a grand old southern estate on the hill. OK, there won’t be a big level yard and who knows how bad it is inside…yet. We’d make that the Best Deal of the Week except that it could need more work than even we anticipate. Sorry—no picture available.

1908 Valdez 3 Bed 2 Bath 1,290 Sq. Ft. Home for $ 939,000 is no steal. I’ll bet that one will be around for Thanksgiving turkey.

2606 Carlmont 4 Bed 2.5 Bath 2,268 Sq. Ft. home for $1,068,000. What can we say? Those homes are in a nice canyon and all seem to be selling around this price. They’re technically attached though only conjoined by the garage (a small zoning concession to the city). Great square footage at a reasonable price and only 13 years old.

2012 Monroe 3 Bed 2 Bath 1,830 Sq. Ft. home for $942,000 was going to be our BEST DEAL of the week but some savvy buyer snapped it up one day one. Very nice indeed.

1726 Terrace 4 Bed 2 Bath 1,710 Sq. Ft. home RELISTED for $1,099,000 from $1,299,000 in April. In Belmont most homes fall into two categories with the exception to the rule being ones with level yards. They are either cliff hangers (down slope homes) where you need a bungee cord to get to the rear yard or Cliff Clingers (upslope lots) where the side of a hill is your rear yard retreat. This home falls in between with some useable yard. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not beating up on hillside homes—they can have amazing views.

2016 Lyon 3 Bed 2.5 Bath 1,781 Sq. Ft. home RELISTED at $959,000 (old price $964,500).

Sommerset ↓2581 Somerset 3 Bed 2.5 Bath 2,210 Sq. Ft. home in Hallmark Area never hit the market and sold WAAAY under what it should have for $1,040,000. To put this in perspective, the last two models like this home sold this year for $1,400,000 and $1,300,000 and there wasn’t a heck of a lot of difference.

↓2613 Coronet 2 Bed 1 Bath ONLY 910 Sq. Ft. listed for $763,800 and SOLD for $758,000 great home but TINY!

↑1134 North Court 3 Bed 2 Bath LISTED for $749,000 SOLD for $810,000. It sold for $ 951,000 back in 2005.
