Since the mortgage catastrophe one year ago came to light the media has been reporting month over month data revealing falling prices and sales. Seasonal adjustments were impossible since that would necessitate comparing data to the same period a year prior—hardly comparing apples to apples sinc...

The month’s supply of homes is a great indicator of whether it’s a seller’s or buyer’s market, and how bullish the market is in general. This barometer is calculated by dividing the number of homes available for sale by the number of sales per month. We’ve tried to smooth out monthly anomalies by...

This home, located atop one of Belmont's mountains, is the best deal of the week for several reasons. Price is obvisoulsy a major factor and this home could easily have been priced at $1,050,000 in our estimation. It has a great location, a warm micro-climate in the Belmont hills, and a fun floor...

With 46 homes for sale, Belmont's inventory is down this week. Twenty six more have a pending sale. Part of the reason the inventory is low this week is the number of new listings was ZERO. That's very unusual for the summer market. Seven homes went into a pending sale status last week (all but o...

It’s official. We’ve had a month of colder than usual weather interrupted only by a four day stint of hotter than usual days in the middle of May. Being one of best months for warm weather, May sure was a disappointment. And now June, notorious for windy conditions is upon us and it’s living up t...

While reports of drastic median price drops continue in the media, isolated areas which are less impacted receive little or no attention. At some point the news should be about areas that are not impacted-why are prices holding up so well when other areas are suffering the greatest set back in ye...

It hit me today that posting from my PDA would make good use of otherwise wasted downtime. Belmont's host to a few casual dining spots. Marvin Gardens has been one of my favorite haunts since I was in college. Locally famous for its Starvin Marvin hamburger--a 1/3rd pound burger on a artisian sof...

It’s pretty exciting this time of year. Don’t you just love coming home to a full answering machine with voice mail messages from your representatives in government? I don’t know about you, but I feel pretty darn important when Bill Clinton calls and asks me to vote for his wife; or it’s Arnold S...

We thought this home was the best deal this week. It's in a great area of the Belmont hills on the west side. Carmelita is known for having a warm micro-climate. For $699,000 this price is hard to beat. It has a larger than normal rear yard which is level--a rare find in the Belmont hills. Call u...

A week ago I posted a blog complaining about the relentless wind in Belmont over the past several weeks. This week we are enjoying record high temperatures not seen since 1970. Personally, I love the warm temperatures and slight breezes we get that take the edge off the heat. May 14th we had high...
