Prices Rising in Burlingame Terrace...

The Burlingame neighborhood of Burlingame Terrace typically has 1 to 2 sales per month, so getting a neighborhood specific price trend is difficult given the lack of sales. However, from the data that is available, prices do appear to be rising in tandem with the rest of Burlingame. The chart below shows 12 month moving averages for median price, average price and the average price per square foot. They are all at recent peaks.

Burlingame Terrace Home Price February 2013

Inventory is low in Burlingame Terrace with just two homes for sale at the end of February 2013. Sellers were very successful in 2012 and in the first two months of 2013. There were 29 sales in the past 14 months, and only 6 listings have been removed or expired (for various reasons, not all of them because the seller did not receive an acceptable offer, they may have just had a change of plans).
