Belmont-July 2009 Home Sales (by request)

By |November 12th, 2009|

We’re posting the sales for Belmont from back in July at the insistence of one of our readers (thanks for being so patient). We skipped that month since we were so busy ourselves. Quite a few buyers came out of the woodwork in July and we noticed it on one of our listings in San […]

Peninsula home values continue to slide, but slower.

By |November 11th, 2009|

We thought we'd update this graph depicting the median price in several peninsula cities. Note that while in Q4 of 2007 the median price in Menlo Park was still rising, it had started to fall off dramatically in Daly City. Prices appear to have hit bottom–for now. The real estate landscape has changed so dramatically […]

Belmont Market Report–October 2009

By |November 7th, 2009|

Changes to the Belmont home market seemed to have slowed recently.

Belmont Home Sales–September 2009

By |October 12th, 2009|

Belmont closed out the month of September with less than a stellar performance. There were 18 sales which is respectable–a couple more than last month–but still shy of even a normal market.

Is this still a Buyer’s market? We think so.

Look at the percent a seller receives […]

Belmont Week in Review–December 17th 2008

By |December 17th, 2008|

The holidays are in full swing and you can tell by the deafening silence that Belmont’s housing activity is slower than the holiday deliveries promised by UPS. A very unscientific barometer is our phones are eerily quiet (which is not a bad thing one time of the year) but some ringing other than the […]

Belmont Housing Review–August 2008

By |September 5th, 2008|

August, 2008
The data for the summer months suggests Belmont’s housing sector may be near or at the bottom for any market corrections though the picture outside the mid-peninsula remains uncertain. Belmont is a micro-market and we take this position not because all of the data points to positive market indicators, but rather the data points […]
