St. Patrick’s Day In the Bay Area 2021

It was one year ago this month that the pandemic kicked off a series of event cancellations which effectively brought the Bay Area’s entertainment scene to a halt. This included the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade and the music, dancing and green-beer-fueled, in-person activities that normally surround it. While these crowded events are still on hold, or reconfigured for a now familiar virtual setting, we...

San Mateo County Real Estate Market Update – January 2021

The San Mateo County real estate market ended the year with sale prices for single-family homes (SFR) up, and condos/townhouses down, +9.2% and -2.9% respectively. This isn’t unexpected. When real estate markets shift or face uncertainty, condos and townhouses will lose their value faster, and recover slower, than single-family homes. Demand is still very strong, with SFR inventory down 20% from last year’s already low...
