San Carlos Price Per Square Foot Data

Posted on 13 March 2010 by vvandervort

Price per square foot in San CarlosI did some pretty specific searching to gather information about price per square foot in San Carlos for a client in particular and thought it’d be worthwhile sharing with my readers. 

When I first start working with buyers, I take them on “The Grand Tour” and show them the neighborhoods in their price range.   To prepare for the tour, I pull up everything in their price range (and go slightly higher) that has been on the market in the past year and then we drive by the neighborhoods and discuss specific properties that have sold so they start to get a feel of what price they are looking at in the neighborhoods they like.  These particular buyers want a 3+ bedroom, 2+ bathroom house and aren’t all that concerned with the size of the house so far or the size of the lot.  They want to buy below $925,000, so I pulled everything up to $950,000.  They also do not want the east side of San Carlos, so I left that area out. 

So for the last year, here is the price per square foot in San Carlos for the 4 MLS areas (San Carlos has 5 MLS areas) that are on the west side when you look at 3+ bedroom, 2+ bathroom houses that sold under $950,000.

This link will take you to a map of the MLS areas in San Carlos that I will discuss below.

Average sales price  = $841,712

MLS Area 355
(Cordes, Garden Terrace, Greenberg, San Carlos Park, Spring Valley Estates)
23 sales in my search parameter in this area in the last year
Average sales price = $775,520
Average price per square foot = $449

I don’t really see anything surprising in the data that I can make profound comments about.  I guess just one comment about how the White Oaks area of San Carlos has been so popular over the years, but I personally think the Howard Park area of San Carlos is the most desirable because of its great location relative to downtown San Carlos and Burton Park, and it is the Howard Park area of San Carlos that has the higest price per square foot.

    I clicked on your MLS search and found that great graphic supplied by Property Minder. I have PM as well and it’s clear I don’t know all I should about it.
