In October 46 homes sold in Encinitas, a decrease in sales by 10% from last month. Here’s the breakdown of overall activity.

 

TOTAL HOMES SOLD

46 (down 10%), 41 Days on Market, Ave. Sales Price $1,267,236 (down 3%), Ave. sale 94% of asking price

Detached Homes Sold
26 (down 28%), 51 Days on Market, Ave. Sales Price $1,747,650 (up 13%), Ave. sale 91% of asking price

Attached Homes (condos, town homes, twin homes) Sold
20 (up 33%), 28 Days on Market, Ave. Sales Price $642,700 (down 11%), Ave. sale 97% of asking price

 

Sales volume of Encinitas home sales dropped in October from last month for detached home sales but increased for attached. Detached home sales were down by 19% from October 2017 but up by 25% for attached homes.

 

Average sales prices rose for single family detached homes, but declined for attached homes. Compared to the October 2017 average prices were up by 23% for detached home, but 6% lower for attached homes.

 

Average days on market increased for both detached homes and attached homes as compared to last month.

 

The median sales price for detached single family homes was $1,332,500 (up 3%) and $655,000 (up 2%) for attached properties.

Buyers in the Encinitas real estate market, on average, paid 3 - 9% less than asking price for their homes; however, 13% paid asking price or better. 33% of the transactions were for cash (versus 29% in September).

 

There were no homes with a Contingent status at the end of October, the same as the last 3 months (i.e., typically these are short sale and foreclosure homes with offers that are being considered by the lenders). Contingent homes are considered Active and are included in the overall statistics, but some are no longer available to be shown or may not be accepting offers.

 

For October 2018 the Encinitas real estate inventory increased slightly by 2% to 130…more good news for Encinitas buyers! This represents an inventory of 1.6 months for attached homes, down from 2.2 months last month, and 3.2 months for detached homes at the current rate of sales, up from 2.5 months last month (over a 3-month sales period). The Encinitas real estate market remains a strong seller’s market, especially for buyers of attached homes.

 

75 Encinitas homes came on the market in October, compared to 79 new listings last month (down 5%); the number of homes going pending in October (excluding homes that actually sold in October) remained the same (49) as in September.

 

I am happy to share more details about real estate in Encinitas with regard to current and past activity, as well as in specific communities including Encinitas Ranch, Leucadia, and Olivenhain.
