San Diego County home prices up again

The recently released S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Index reports that home prices in San Deigo County were up in July 2011 for the fourth consecutive month.

The Case-Shiller report doesn't actually provide prices but is truly an index with the base value set at 100 for January 2000.

In July 2011 the index for San Diego County was at 155.22, up .1% over June. That means that if you paid, say, $100,000 for a condo in January 2000, it would now be worth $155,220. That's a nice ten-year profit, even after the price declines of the past few years.

I believe this is more proof that if you buy a home for the long term — to live in, raise a family in, retire in, and perhaps even die in — anytime is a great time to buy a home!

If you're ready to buy a piece of America's Finest City, just give me a call. I'm ready to help you!

That's outstanding news!  Of course, I cannot prices ever falling in San Diego...doesn't everyone want to live there?  I definitely think it is one of the most liveable cities anywhere.

It is actually important news because it is amazing how few buyers seem to realize this fact. I hope you are finding buyers who are actually a bit more motivated than they seem to be in my area. Have a great week Jim.

Hi Jim,

It’s the First Monday in October! I’m checking in on my AR friends while I drink a nice hot cup of tea on this brisk October Monday Morning in Cary, North Carolina.  And I just want to say “I Hope YOU Have a Wonderful Week!”
