The following data are taken from the MLS (private sales are not included in these statistics, nor are multifamily properties, or mobile and manufactured homes). The data are believed to be reliable at the time this report was written but are not guaranteed.

 

A total of 204 homes sold in August, an increase of 6 homes from last month despite the pandemic, and a similar trend seen in other communities. Here’s the breakdown of activity.

 

Detached Homes Sold
166 (up by 3), 26 Days on Market, Average Sales Price $686,666 (down by 6%), Average sales price was 100% of original asking price

 

Attached Homes (condos, town homes) Sold
38 (up by 3), 21 Days on Market, Average Sales Price $353,690 (down 1%), Average sales price was 100% of original asking price

 

Overall home sales in August rose, with slight increases in both detached and attached home sales. The average sales price was modestly lower for detached homes, but slightly less for attached homes compared to July prices. Sales prices ranged from $187,000 to $2,200,000.

 

Buyers did not negotiate much off the original list price, and well over half of the home buyers (60%) paid full price or more for their homes, despite the pandemic, no doubt due to competitive bidding. 9% of the Escondido home buyers paid cash. The average marketing time declined by 9 days for detached single family homes, and was 1 day shorter for attached home sales; many buyers made quick decisions with 51% of the homes going pending in 1 week or less!

 

The MEDIAN sales price of the detached homes sold was $633,000 (down 3%), and $318,750 (down 13%) for attached homes compared to last month.

 

There were 12 Escondido homes on the market with a Contingent status (i.e., in some cases these are short sale or REO homes that have offers being considered by lenders but others are first right of refusals), compared to 5 last month; 1 is a short sale and the rest are first right of refusals. These are included in the statistics below.

At the end of August there were 141 homes for sale in Escondido, ranging in price from $229,000 to $3,575,000, 2 fewer than last month. This represents an inventory of less than 1 month for attached properties (the same as last month), and less than 1 month for detached homes (also like last month), based on the current rate of sales over the last 3 months. Escondido remains a very strong seller’s market despite the pandemic and became even more competitive in August.

 

In August 214 homes came on the market, 12% more than in July, despite the pandemic, which was good news for buyers with an average of 7 homes listed per day. In contrast, the number of homes going pending dropped in August, from 205 to 179 (down 13%); both buyers and sellers were busy in the Escondido housing market during the month.
