As with any statistic, 1 month of numbers is not a trend, so it is important to watch what is and has been happening over a period of time. One should not draw any firm conclusions regarding pricing because of the extremes in the Del Mar real estate market, as well as the fairly small number of sales.

Good Morning Jeff, The statistics are always enlightening to track. I received my Altos monthly report and it  seems to be tending positive based on market mix at least more than others I have been seeing. Hopefully with the slower market that everyone seems to be reporting that the numbers can hold up.

Jeff, I can't even imagine a home selling for $48 million.  Wowsy!  But then again look at those average prices...  Amazes me that the market for high end homes is as strong as it is in your area.  Our higher end properties here in the Raleigh/Cary area (albeit not nearly near the prices in Del Mar) haven't done as well.  It's actually a phenomenal time to purchase around the million dollar mark - there's some fantastic deals here!  Thanks for sharing your stats with us.
