In April 2019 there were 106 homes sold in San Marcos’ 2 zip codes (92069 and 92078), a 5% decrease from last month. Here’s the breakdown of overall activity.

 

Detached Homes Sold
82 (down 4%), 34 Days on Market, Average Sales Price $700,994 (down 9%), Average sale 97% of original asking price

Attached Homes (condos, town homes) Sold
24 (down 11%), 41 Days on Market, Average Sales Price $484,458 (up 3%), Average sale 98% of original asking price

 

Overall sales volume in April decreased modestly compared to last month, with a larger decline for attached single family home sales. Average sales prices dropped for detached homes but rose modestly for attached home sales. Average time on market shifted down for detached properties but increased for detached single family homes.

 

15% of the transactions were for cash, compared to 13% last month. While buyers negotiated sales prices on average by 2 - 3% (off original price), 30% of San Marcos home buyers paid full price or more! The median sales price of detached homes was $662,500 (down 7%) and $480,000 (no change from last month) for attached homes/condos/town homes.

 

There were 6 San Marcos homes for sale at the end of April with a Contingent status, the same as last month. All 6 are first right of refusals based on contingent offers accepted by sellers. These homes are included in the overall Active statistics.

 

The San Marcos real estate market inventory increased substantially by 27% from March to 208 listings. This represents an inventory of 2.4 months for attached homes (up from 2.1 months last month) and 2 months for detached single family homes (up from 1.6 months last month) based on the current rate of sales over the last 3 months. The San Marcos real estate market remains a very strong seller’s market, given buyer demand and current supply.

Similarly the number of homes going pending in April also increased, by 12%, to 14 pendings (excluding homes that sold last month). Both are signs of our active Spring housing market.
