Menlo Park Recent Home Sales

Original post made by MP, Menlo Park: Downtown, on Feb 13, 2012

With all the hype & misinformation about bidding wars, I wanted to point out the following facts about homes that sold between Dec 1 and Feb 6 in Menlo Park (single family, West of 101 only).

22 sold for less than List price
- Median $147k under
- Avg $287k under
- 5 sold for at least $450k under
- 1 sold for $1.4m under

12 sold for at or over List price
- Median 80k over
- Avg $55k Over
- 1 sold for $278k over

And there is a pretty event distribution of behavior Dec vs. January.

In Palo Alto, single family homes - sold in January:

12 with sales price less than the List Price
- AVG $120k Under
17 with sales price equal or greater than List Price
- AVG $177k over

So yes, the market is crazy, but not as bad as that Facebook IPO article made it seem. Don't engage in bidding wars!
