Cliff’s Viewpoint:


This past week we have seen the YTD average number of 11 homes coming on the market for sale. It’s a bit down from last week but still strong for the home buyer.  Price reduction on homes are up meaning list prices have be viewed as too high for home-buyers. Monthly Inventories have been higher the past three weeks than the whole rest of 2018. Even costs per square foot has fallen below the bench mark of over $1,000 since the Christmas Holiday. More importantly the Average Sales Price has dropped below the $1.8M perch it has enjoyed for over 5 months to $ 1,761,966. It is indeed good news for the home buyers of today! 

Prices of homes have steadily been on an upward trend though, as demonstrated by 10 new homes were listed over one million dollars there was a total of 11 homes brought onto the market. The means 91% of the homes listed last week were $1 M plus.

The beginning of 2017 home prices were breaking through the $1.5M mark. This past week the average selling price of a home in Redwood City was $ 1,761,966!

Question: When’s the best time to buy a home?

Answer: Today is the correct answer! If you said yesterday you were actually correct, however, too bad those prices are gone. I don’t see any let up on the current strong demand for homes. I believe this trend will continue to support prices going up for homes. At least for the rest of 2018.

Open Houses stay alert.

When you go to a Sunday Open Houses in Silicon Valley you will see lots of other home buyers looking at the homes along with you. The home buyers from the tech industry like  Oracle, Electronic Arts, Google, Facebook, Intel, Box, LinkedIn, Instagram, and Buffer are out in full force, along with the bio-tech home-buyers from companies like; V Biosciences, Abbott Vascular, AbGenomics, and Genotech ready to place offers on their new homes. And, they all seem to have large sums of discretionary income to spend too.

As you can see the real estate market in Redwood City is still very strong and homes are selling faster and receiving higher offers for more money.

What is the “get-around”?

If you are looking to purchase a home in San Mateo or Santa Clara counties Cliff Keith and Team have many homes for you to choose from.

Some of these homes are not in the MLS and some are in MLS. The point being if you are trying to buy or sell a home we would love to help you find that perfect home. Especially, if you have not found a home and have been looking for one over 3 months.
