Most indicators show some cooling of the market over the summer after the super heated spring selling season.  

A m

arket slow down in the summer is a typical seasonal trend as children are home from school and people tend to travel. However, while we did see a slight slowdown this summer, demand remained extremely strong, with median prices staying just a tad below the spring peak.   
With holiday travel upon us, the last two months of the year will likely continue to follow historic trends and slow down until the new year. We should have that information in another month or so once data is available.

Contrary to popular opinion, inventory was the highest it has been in years. Unprecedented demand has driven up prices and shortened days on market.  We are still overbidding on homes, but not quite like in years past.

Bon Marché 

Wednesdays | 4 - 8 PM | Menlo Park

A French-inspired outdoor market has come to Menlo Park. Bon Marché features more than a dozen vendors for fresh produce, flowers, cheese, charcuterie, mushrooms, beer, wine, olive oil, honey and more.

The market takes place weekly every Wednesday and started on Oct. 20. It will run 4 to 8 p.m. at the 600 and 700 blocks of Santa Cruz Avenue, adjacent to Bistro Vida at 641 Santa Cruz Ave. “We’ll bring the best gelato, the best saucisson. There will be the mushroom guy, and the cheese guy,” Bistro Vida owner Ali El Safy previously said in an interview about coordinating the effort. 

Alton Brown is hitting the road with a new culinary variety show. Audiences can expect more comedy, more music, more highly unusual cooking demos, and more potentially dangerous sciencey stuff. Prepare for an evening unlike any other and if Brown calls for volunteers… think twice.

Prepare for an evening unlike any other and if Brown calls for volunteers…think twice. Performance will be at the Center for the Performing Arts.
