Oceanside is definitely a sellers' market right now, and seems to be fairly stable.  Good news for the area.

Kathy - it is indeed encouraging. Wish the inventory was showing more of a shift, though

Jane - and it has been that was for several months now. San Marcos, too

Ginny - yes, the wedding was fabulous and it has already been 2 weeks - hard to believe. Oceanside has a lot to offer and prices, including oceanfront, are far better than next door in Carlsbad and further south.

That picture of the dock is like a postcard photo. Truly captures the essence of a beach lifestyle. Good job.

Jeff, this follows the trend that I have been seeing in other market reports. February was not a good month for most city and towns, but March showing better numbers.
