According tho the MLS (Multiple Listing Service), there are currently only 13 houses for sale in San Bruno. The least expensive home doesn't have a photo because it's been condemned. The second- and third-least expensive homes are short sales with multiple offers.
The mid-range homes have offer dates, and the higher-end homes are just too expensive.
Spring and summer are generally the best times to buy a home. People are moving before school starts, the weather is nice and there is more daylight to house hunt—not happening here.
So what are homebuyers to do with the housing market dried up like the Mojave Desert?
Well, you can stay in the game by following real estate websites and sign up to be notified when a new house hits the market. You can broaden your city limits and criteria. Or stay put.
Dry spells don't last forever and the real estate market ebbs and flows. Hang in there, homebuyers!
