Inventory Rises Slightly in San Diego’s Real Estate Market

The following data is taken directly from San Diego’s Multiple Listing Service. It is a snapshot of San Diego’s housing market for the 1-15 corridor as well as the Metro areas of San Diego. Going back 30 days for the month of August, the data illustrates a general trend of building inventory, decreasing short sales and solid pending sales as well as closed sales.  In both single family homes, as well as condos, throughout San Diego we see a slight slow down in San Diego’s housing market. More importantly, we also see a dwelling number of distressed sales; a steady trend since the first of the year.

Feel free to look back over last months snapshot, found in my blog here, for a quick comparison of numbers. One of the largest areas of inventory increase was seen in Rancho Bernardo. Conversely, the area with the shortest increase of available homes for sale is the popular Hillcrest and Mission Hills area.

Scripps Ranch, Rancho Penasquitos and Mira Mesa saw a steady increase in available homes for sale during the month of August. Condo listings in these same areas also increased. As the summertime comes to an end it is normal to see a gradual easing off of home sales.

One important note, homes in desirable areas which are well priced and well taken care of , sell fast and with multiple offers.  So just because we are entering the “slow” season for real estate don’t delay when you find a home you love!  It’s worth it!
