North peninsula real estate has been in high demand for the past 6 months due to low inventory, low interest rates, and media hype about sales going up.
Being partial to San Bruno, because I live here, work here, and my kids go to school hear, I am happy to see that the house values are leading the way in the nothern peninsula. Daly City, South San Francisco, and Pacifica are great cities to live in, if you can take the fog...and I know that parts of San Bruno have their dense days, too. We even have a house for sale in South San Francisco in a neighborhood called Sunshine Gardens which actually does get sun!
According to the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) a home on the north peninsula only stays on the market for about 2 weeks to a month, some sell in less than a week! If there were more homes to choose from would the supply and demand phenomenon cease? Hard to say. Banks are very strict in their lending policies lately and there is no more 100% financing available.
It makes me proud that San Bruno is in high demand, especially those homes near San Bruno Park in the Huntington Park and Mills Park area! The weather is calm, the schools and PTA's are fantastic, I should know, and talk about charming neighborhoods...Have you heard of the "Peach" Streets?
