$1,000,000

About 4 months ago somebody asked me if there were still houses in Foster City that could be had for under a million dollars. “Of course” I said…thinking of various Eichlers (particularly fixer uppers) as well as ranchers on busy streets and the neighborhood around Boothbay Park on streets like Chesapeake and Winchester. Well, what […]

Foster City 2013 Condo/Townhouse Statistics

Onward into the realm of the amazing and incredible. These numbers are actually pretty similar to the single family numbers. As I’ve mentioned before on this blog, condo/townhouses are a lot more difficult to draw conclusions about because there are problem projects and great projects and some are way up and others not so much. […]

Foster City 2013 Statistics

Well I knew before I even started to look at this that the 2013 numbers were going to be amazing and I was still surprised. Last year I wrote a list of categories, total number of homes sold and the median prices of single family homes in FC with comparisons to previous years.  Here’s the […]
