What Happened in the Escondido Real Estate Market in November 2011?

 

Escondido Homes for Sale - Homes for Sale in Escondido

 

Escondido is an inland community, about 15 miles from the coast adjacent to San Marcos. Like its neighbors, San Marcos, Vista and Oceanside, Escondido has seen fairly significant shifts in the real estate market with a large number of short sales and foreclosures.

As a buyer or seller in the Escondido real estate market, understanding recent trends and current market conditions is essential so you can make informed decisions; media reports focus on general market conditions and therefore will not provide an accurate picture of the local Escondido real estate market.

 

The following data are taken from the San Diego MLS (private sales are not included in these statistics, nor are multifamily properties or mobile/manufactured homes). The data are believed to be reliable but are not guaranteed.

 

In November 2011 there were 141 homes sold in the Escondido real estate market, up 7% from October. Sales were up as were average prices, and buyers are not negotiating much on the prices from list price – about 2% on average.

 

Here’s the breakdown of overall activity.

There were 214 Escondido homes (30% of all active properties) on the market with a Contingent status, i.e., short sale or REO homes that have offers being considered by lenders. These are included in the statistics below.

 

At the end of November 2011 there were 711 Escondido homes for sale, about 6% fewer homes than in October, the 4th month of decline although small. This represents an inventory of 4.9 months for attached homes (up from 4.5 months in October) and 4.8 months for detached homes (down from 5.2 months in October), based on the current rate of sales over the last 6 months.  Thus the market remains tight for buyers.

In November 163 homes came on the market, 18% fewer than newly listed homes in October, the 2nd month of decline; the number of homes going pending (118) also decreased 11% from October pendings (132).

Jeff I have been seeing market reports showing sales up lately, but reports showing sales and price up is very unusual.  Hope that trend continues out there.

Michelle - this community has a pretty active market, in large part due to the affordability. It is not particularly close to the ocean which adds to the afforability.

George - so true, the trend is different from just about every other community I look at.
