Here is a summary of the Cardiff real estate market for February 2019 based on information provided by the MLS (private sales are not included; data are believed to be accurate as of this writing but are not guaranteed). A total of 7 homes sold during February, down by 2 (22%) from the number of sales in January.

 

Detached Homes Sold

4 (down 33%); Ave. 34 Days on Market, Ave. Sales Price $1,310,625 (down 27%); Ave. sale 97% of asking price

 

Attached Homes (condos, town homes, twin homes) Sold

3 (no change) Ave. 22 Days on Market, Ave. Sales Price $649,666 (down 56%). Ave. sale was 98% of asking price

 

The overall volume of sales in Cardiff dropped modestly from last month (but the month was a little shorter); while attached home sales did not shift, there were 2 fewer detached homes sold in February. 14% of the transactions in February were for cash, compared to 22% last month. 43% of the buyers paid asking price or better for their homes. Marketing time decreased markedly from last month for both detached single family homes and attached homes.

 

At the end of February 2019 there was 1 home in the Cardiff housing market with a Contingent status, compared to none for the last 2 months (i.e., for the most part these are short sale and REO homes that have accepted offers being reviewed by the lenders, but some are first rights of refusal where offers have been accepted contingent on the sale of a buyer’s home). This home is a first right of refusal due to a contingent offer.

 

As of the end of February 2019 there were 23 Cardiff homes for sale, up substantially by 48% from last month. This represents an inventory of 4.9 months for attached homes (up from 3.4 months last month), and 2.7 months for detached homes (up from 1.8 months last month) based on the rate of sales over the last 3 months. The Cardiff market remains a strong seller’s market for buyers of detached homes and is a seller’s market for attached home buyers.

 

Cardiff home

 

21 Cardiff listings came on the market in February, more than double the number in January, which is good news for buyers. 9 homes went pending in February (not counting those that sold), the same number of pendings as in January.

Due to the small volume of sales one should not draw firm conclusions about pricing and other trends in Cardiff by the Sea. Keep in mind that average prices can be dramatically affected by the sale of high and low priced homes each month, especially when sales volume is low.
