Local realtor Raziel Ungar published his 2012 Market Review over the weekend. It contained a bunch of interesting factoids about the local market including a neighborhood-by-neighborhood analysis of how many and for how much properties were sold. I found these three 2012 factoids interesting
About 40% of homes sold under their final asking price (although typically not by much). That apprears to have changed since last year as more over-asking offers are discussed.
Wells Fargo did nearly 3 in every 10 home loans in Burlingame, while First Republic Bank was second with about 1 in every 10 home loans.
Burlingables(near Washington Park and BHS) and Burlingame Grove (north of B'way between the train tracks and El Camino) topped the price-per-square foot at $708 and $706! Perhaps high-speed rail hasn't penetrated the local mindset even now?
