In this first graph, we see active properties for sale in RED vs sold properties in GREEN.


Annually during September-October, there are the MOST HOMES AVAILABLE FOR SALE. This suggests that buyers have more choices and typically diversifies interested parties.


Annually during June-July, there are the MOST HOMES SOLD. This suggests that the prior month is when MOST BUYERS get into contract and MAY-JUNE is the MOST COMPETITIVE TIME for a buyer.



In this second graph, we see the peaks and troughs of the Medians sales prices in San Mateo County.


Annually between MAY-JULY we see the peaks (highest) of prices, while between Dec-Jan the troughs (lowest) of prices of sold properties.
