Escondido Real Estate Market in July 2015

 

Escondido homes and condos for sale, and properties for sale in Escondido CAEscondido is an inland community, about 17 miles from the coast just east of San Marcos. Like its neighbors, San Marcos, Vista and Oceanside, Escondidos’ real estate market has shifted in the last couple of years in a much more positive direction following the downturn.

 

As a buyer or seller in the housing market in Escondido, understanding recent trends and current market conditions is essential so you can make informed decisions about buying and selling Escondido homes; media reports focus on general market conditions and do not provide an accurate picture of the local Escondido real estate market nor how it impacts buyers and sellers.

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 at the time this report was written but are not guaranteed.

 

In July 2015 there were 217 homes sold in Escondido, a substantial increase in sales volume by 30% from last month. Average sale prices increased modestly for detached homes, but decreased for attached. Buyers were able to negotiate, on average, 2 - 3% off sales price; some homes sold for over asking price. 13% of the transactions were cash, the same as last month. Average marketing time increased modestly overall.

 

Here’s the breakdown of overall activity.

New condos and homes for sale in Escondido CA, and Escondido luxury properties for sale

 

There were 44 Escondido homes (10% 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 July 2015 there were 430 homes for sale in Escondido, up by 7% from last month. This represents an inventory of 1.8 months for attached properties (the same as last month), and 2.6 months for detached homes (down from 2.8 months last month), based on the current rate of sales over the last 6 months.  The market remains very competitive for buyers, and is a strong seller’s market based on inventory levels.
