Buyers in the Encinitas real estate market, on average, paid 2 – 3% less than asking price for their homes; however, 44% paid asking price or better. 35% of the transactions were for cash (versus 25% in March).

 

There were 2 homes with a Contingent status at the end of May, compared to none in April (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 May 2018 the Encinitas real estate inventory increased to 104, up 2% from last month, the 5th inventory increase in 2018 and more good news for Encinitas buyers! This represents an inventory of about 30 days months for attached homes, down from 1.4 months last month, and 2.4 months for detached homes at the current rate of sales, down from 2.7 months last month (over a 3-month sales period). The Encinitas real estate market remains a very strong seller’s market, especially for buyers of attached homes.

 

88 Encinitas homes came on the market in May, compared to 77 new listings last month (up 14%); the number of homes going pending in May (excluding homes that actually sold in May), remained the same at 51.
