Buyers were able to negotiate, on average, 7 - 8% off list price in October sales with a number of homes sold near or at asking (1 sold at list price); 29% were cash transactions compared to 45% in September.

 

In October, there were 2 Del Mar homes on the market with a Contingent status (i.e., homes with offers being reviewed by short sale and REO lenders, 2% of the total number of homes for sale – know that some of these are no longer able to be shown or may not be accepting additional offers). This is included in the overall Active statistics below. 

 

27 homes entered the Del Mar real estate market in October, down 29% from last month (38). In contrast the number of Del Mar homes going pending (excluding homes that sold) increased to 24 (up 20%).

 

There were 106 Del Mar homes for sale at the end of October, a decline by 10% in inventory from last month. At the current rate of sales over a 6-month period, this represents an inventory of 5.4 months for detached homes (down from 5.5 months last month), and 2.8 months for attached properties, down from 4 months in September; the Del Mar housing market remains one that favors sellers of detached homes, and is a strong sellers market attached homes (condos, town homes).

As with any statistic, 1 month of numbers does not establish a trend, so it is important to watch what has been happening over a period of time. One should not draw any firm conclusions regarding pricing because of the extremes in the sale of  Del Mar properties, as well as the overall modest number of home sales.
