Curious to see the evolution of average prices, from one year to the next?
It turns out it is pretty similar.
Here looking at the compared graphs of both the County of San Mateo, and Santa Clara, from one year to the next:
The one thing that appears at this point is a slight decrease in prices of single family residences in the County of Santa Clara. But this happened too at the end of 2010. Overall the curves are fairly similar.
What is also apparent in these graphs is that the average values are higher in the County of San Mateo than in the County of Santa Clara.
Finally, the end of the year is looking up for the San Mateo County so far.
