Burlingame Park Real Estate - July 2013

August 20th, 2013

Prices Up 15%+ in Past Year in Burlingame Park

Prices have risen by more than 15% in the past 12 months in the Burlingame Park real estate market. Buyers are regularly paying above $700 per square foot. Here are some highlights in this submarket as of July 2013:

  • There was one sale, a 5 bed 2 bath 3,140 square foot home on Ralston. It sold for $2,368,995 after 18 days on the market. This was actually below the final listing price of $2,395,000. However, at $754 per square foot, the sale was representative of the new price levels in the area, where above $700 is the norm.
  • Sellers continue to be incredibly successful. Only one listing has expired or been cancelled so far this year. Just a few years ago there was an average of one listing expiring/canceling per month.
  • Inventory remains low. At the end of July 2013, there was only one active listing on the market.

While most of the submarkets in Burlingame are regularly seeing sales that are well above final list prices, Burlingame Park is acting more like neighboring Hillsborough, where sales prices and list prices are more evenly matched. This is not too surprising as Burlingame Park shares more of a border with Hillsborough than the rest of Burlingame. The average sales price to list price in Burlingame Park in 2013 has been 101% (helped by one listing that went 111% above the list price), versus 105% in all of Burlingame.

Prices have risen by around 15% to 20% in the past twelve months in Burlingame Park. The average price per square foot in 2013 has been $749, up 16% from 2012 levels.

Median and average selling prices in 2013 are above $2.25 million, up 40% to 60% above 2012. Of course, prices are not actually up that much. There have been a lot of larger homes selling this year. The average sold home in 2013 in Burlingame Park has been over 3,000 square feet. In most years it is around 2,500 square feet. Larger homes have higher price tags. This is all part of normal random fluctuations that appear when looking at a single submarket, but something that prospective buyers may not be aware of if they are only looking at the headline data.
