2021 was a unique year with many highs and lows. Thank you for your continued support and hope your year is off to a good start. As we enter 2022, we are seeing an incredibly strong seller’s market throughout the Peninsula. While interest rates are up slightly buyer demand remains high and inventory is low. Sellers who choose to list their homes now will likely experience a high level of buyer interest.

While the future is unknown, I have a good feeling that 2022 will be a strong year for Real Estate in the Bay Area once again. If you'd like to meet up to discuss the market, your needs, or just say hello please reach out.



A charitable initiative to support our local schools.

To support local schools, Dana Carmel will donate $5,000 to your local Education Foundation when you buy or sell a home with her by May 31, 2022.

Dana Carmel is a long-time, active Foundation member. She knows just how much our school districts rely on Foundation support to provide quality education. Funds raised provide additional teachers, specialists, programs, and tools that make our schools extraordinary places for learning.

This benefits both home values and school districts. A report by the National Bureau of Economic Research titled, “Using Market Valuation to Assess Public School Spending,” found that for every dollar spent on public schools in a community, home values increased by about $20. This increase directly translates to higher resale values.

Atherton inventory is very low with strong buyer interest. We had over 50 people attend the Open House weekend and received multiple offers in less than a week.

Covid has sparked a desire for larger properties where homeowners have the option to add ADUs as extra office or flex space. Buyers want private yards to meet with friends and family outside. Outdoor kitchens and dining areas continue to be very desirable. Now is a great time to sell your house. I can guide you through every step of the way from prepping your home to getting you the highest sale price.
