With no new listings for two weeks in a row, itâ€™s nice to see a little activity before the winter market slows to a snailâ€™s pace.
There was no agent "Tuesday tour" this week due the Veteranâ€™s Day holiday so most of these homes weâ€™ll not view in person until next Tuesday; and I won't be updating the week's activity until a week from Saturday–the normal day for my Belmont Update post.
Belmont has 53 homes currently for sale which is higher than normal for this time of year but with no new listings for two weeks in a row and four sales last week inventory should start to wind down.
Five new listings popped up recently and here they are:
3817 Naughton-4 Beds 3.5 bath 2,103 Sq. Ft. home LISTED for $1,550,000
Naughton is a nice street and this home shows beautifully. This is a great home for people who do not need a large level yard but want nice views–though it does have a level yard area out back. Also, if you are adverse to climbing stairs this home is not for you. OPEN SAT 11/15 1:00-4:00 & SUN 11/16 1:00-4:00 Listed By Bob Bredel, RE/MAX Today
Situated on a relatively busy section of San Juan, but on a very large 16,670 Sq. Ft. lot. Though a lot of that is sloped up in the rear so itâ€™s not really usable. The home has been upgraded very nicely. Still, it seems priced a tad bit on the high side. Listed By Richard Beale, Beale Properties NO OPEN HOUSE LISTED.
2614 Read.â€”4 Beds 4+ Bath 2,800 Sq. Ft. home LISTED for $1,000,000. The sad story is this is a short sale. It was purchased back in July of 2006 for $1,233,000 and they put a lot of work into it since. This is one of those Belmont homes with a bungee line to the rear yard. Listed By Bryan H. Yoshida, Provida Mortgage & Realty, Inc NO OPEN HOUSES LISTED.
1308 Academyâ€”3 Beds 2.5 Bath 3,400 Sq. Ft. home LISTED for 998,000
I did a little reconnaissance on this home since they haven't posted any pictures or tours on-line. Frankly the home is not ready to be shown just yet but I've included a sneak peak that I took with my own camera.
Listed by Eda Diridon in our office at 3,400 Sq. Ft. on a 9,150 Sq. Ft. lot in the heart of Belmontâ€™s Country Club area this home has a small creek which runs through the rear yard. Thereâ€™s a nice deck at ground level and some flat yard area. The home has a dramatic setting with soaring windows that look out upon your own miniature park. It needs updating, but this is a good deal for the size home. NO OPEN HOUSES LISTED YET.
1905 Lyonâ€”3 Beds 2 Bath 1,350 Sq. Ft. home LISTED for $739,000.
Whatâ€™s up with Lyon this year? There have been about five homes for sale this year alone. Too new to tour also but it looks to be a home that needs some updating. Listed By Kristin F. Leishman, Patriot Properties OPEN SUN 11/16 1:00-4:000
15 Kitte Laneâ€”4 Beds 3 Bath 1,900 Sq. Ft. home on a 9,000 Sq. Ft. lot for $900,000. If this home seems familiar it should. It was listed back in April of 2006 for $1,355,000. Itâ€™s now a short sale approved at $900,000. So whatâ€™s the catch? It has a small landslide problem in the rear yard where it needs a retaining wall to prevent the creek from eroding the lot. Sounds horrible but itâ€™s a simple engineering feat to the tune of $150,000 probably (my estimate). Other than that, itâ€™s a great location and nice home.

NO OPEN HOUSES LISTED
1218 North Roadâ€”3 Beds 2 Bath 1,543 Sq. Ft. home LISTED for $825,000. This too should sound familiar but are you ready for thisâ€¦back in August of 2007 it was listed for $1,250,000. No prices have not dropped that far they just overpriced it by a long shot. Itâ€™s a real cliff clinger home and a driveway that would give any normal driver cause for alarm. Nice views though and the price is in-line now for this completely rebuilt home. Listed By Michael Robles, Coldwell Banker-Burlingame OPEN SUN 11/16 2:00-4:00
â†‘2308 Casa Bona (pictured)-3 Beds 2 bath 1,570 Sq. Ft. home LISTED for $899,000 SOLD for $925,000 in 4 days. This was a nicely remodeled home and priced to sell as you can see by the multiple offers.
â†“3215 Upper Lockâ€”3 Beds 2 bath 1,500 Sq. Ft. home LISTED for $849,988 SOLD for $792,000 in 42 days. Why did this home sell for so much less than Casa Bona (above) being that they are virtually the same size? A) Casa Bona was totally remodeled and this home was all originalâ€”and it lacked the views.
â†“809 North Roadâ€”3 Beds 1.5 Bath 1,160 Sq. Ft. home LISTED for $629,900 and SOLD for $607,402 in 9 days. Nice clean starter home in a trailer park atmosphere neighborhoodâ€”hence the good price.
