Here is a really cool tool you can use to see recently sold homes via my website, or anywhere in San Diego, its preformatted for Carmel Valley, which you can easily change by X'ing out the zip code and start a new search for RECENT SALES ACTIVITY, neighborhood, map drag and drop etc. . If you are a buyer or seller, this is a pretty handy tool to look up comps, WITH OUT AN AGENT.
Just spent the weekend searching for a Downtown condo under $350K and the pickings were slim to none. At the higher end of the market $800K and up, buyers still have more leverage and options.
