As I’ve written on preceeding posts, Single Family inventory had increased considerably from earlier this year until we actually reached a high of 31 houses a few weeks ago. Several sales have taken place in the last 2 weeks bringing the total number of currently active homes to 23 this morning, along with 18 pending sales. In the chart above the pending sales are highlighted in gray. DOM denotes the days on the market the house has been actively for sale.

Of the newer listings here there are a few that are worth commenting on:

642 Greenwich listed by Sue Dickey of Alain Pinel for $1,698,888 is the gem of this crop. Really and truly gorgeous! If you can spare a few minutes this weekend go visit it’s open house…you won’t regret it. Very, very nice home on wide water at Whalers.

774 Widgeon listed by Cindy Liebsch of Coldwell Banker for $1,349,000. Narrow waterfront house that’s also a real beauty! Lot’s of natural light and very nicely remodeled. Another one that’s worth a look.

330 Bluefish listed by Jessica Yau of Coldwell Banker for $1,098,888. This listing was on for a while at a higher price and was recently reduced, making it a really good buy in my opinion for a 2 story 4 bedroom home. I can’t imagine it lasting too much longer at this price.

Keep an eye on these homes, I’m betting they all sell quickly.

    I’d love to hear from owners in Foster City who live on the water. I’ve heard conflicting opinions – that it is too windy in Foster City to truly enjoy your waterfront backyard and that it is noisy because sounds bounce off of the water.

  2. Hi Michael. I lived most of my life in a waterfront home in Foster City. My parents and grandmother still live on the water. Yes, there is wind in Foster City, and because of this, many homeowner’s do have some type of wind break in the backyard, so they can enjoy their waterfront view at anytime. I never noticed the noise issue you mentioned, actually have always found it quite tranquil out there. My main goal as a homeowner myself in FC, is to actually get back onto the water, have a boat, join one of the boat clubs, the whole kit and kaboodle. Plus, it really is quite beautiful to be able to sit on your couch and look out at the water…….

  3. Jennifer makes several good points…as a Realtor I think there’s more value in waterfronts simply because they are so unique. People will gladly accept the tradeoff for the location itself. Waterfront houses are actually alot like view homes in the hills around here, and I think the wind issue is very similar at view homes in the hills to waterfont homes in FC. Being able to look out the window at a tranquil water view is certainly appealing. As far as noise, Whaler’s is directly across the water from Chevy’s and Portofino Grill…and that sure hasn’t effected the values there, ie the Greenwich listing.

  4. I lived for awhile on the water in Foster City. We never had an issue with noise. The wind was the primary problem. It made the backyard much less appealing — even in the summer. Having young children finally drove us to find a safer location for them to play outside so we moved.

    What we miss the most about living on the water are the amazing sunsets and peaceful views from the waterside of the house.

    Jennifer,

    I would like to eventually get a waterfront home and boat as well. I always sit at the windows of Mr. Fong’s and marvel at the water view.

    Michael

    You will love it! Hopefully, we’ll pass each other in our boats one day!

    Jennifer,

    By the way, my wife knows you. Her name is Maria and she used to work for Barbara Burrowes in Millbrae.
