How's the market for single family homes in Belmont, CA 94002?

How's the market for single-family homes in Belmont, CA 94002?

Last week I did an analysis of the condominium/townhouse market in downtown Palo Alto, California for a client. The results were fascinating--the price drop between 2007 and 2010 year to date was quite small, less than 5%.

So, that prompted me to check other market segments in towns in San Mateo County and the Silicon Valley where I have listings or have helped buyers this year.

Here's what I discovered about one particular area in Belmont, CA:

Belmont home sales, statistics 2007-2010 YTD

The median price of these Belmont, California homes has declined less than 3% between 2007 and 2010 to date!
Although that market has slowed in the last couple of months, the prices remain strong and the overall result has been good, and lends credence to what I've long counseled buyers: if you think you'll be in the house for around 5 years, you should be fine economically; anything shorter than 3 is a gamble.

If you have similar questions about your area, the spot you call home in the mid-Peninsula or Silicon Valley, I'm here to help.
