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 199 homes sold in October, just 3 fewer than last month. Here’s the breakdown of activity.

 

Single Family Homes Sold
157 (down 11%); Average Sales Price $693,175 (down 3%); Average Sales Price was 100% of original asking price

 

Condos, Townhomes & Duplexes Sold
42 (68% more); Average Sales Price $366,111 (down 1%); Average sales price was 99% of original asking price

 

Overall home sales in October dropped slightly, with fewer single family homes sold but substantially more condos, townhomes and duplexes. The average sales price was modestly lower for single family homes, and lower for condos, townhomes and duplexes compared to last month. Sales prices ranged from $180,000 to $1,680,000.

 

Some buyers were able to negotiate some off the original list price, but well over half of the home buyers (67%) paid full price or more for their homes, no doubt due to multiple offers. Many buyers made quick decisions, with almost half (47%) of the homes going pending in 1 week or less!

 

The MEDIAN sales price of the detached homes sold was $670,000 (up 2%), and $367,500 (down 1%) for attached homes compared to last month.

 

There were 17 Escondido homes on the market with an Active Under Contract status compared to 11 last month. 1 is short sale. These are included in the statistics below.

 

Escondido condos

 

At the end of October there were 179 homes for sale in Escondido, 8% more than last month, another increase and good news for buyers. This represents an inventory of 1.2 months for condos, townhomes and duplexes (up from less than a month in September), and 25 days for detached homes (just slightly better than last month), based on the current rate of sales over the last 3 months. Escondido remains a very strong seller’s market.

 

In October 197 homes came on the market, 10% fewer than in September, but still good news for buyers with an average of more than 6 new listings per day. The number of homes going pending dropped slightly in October, from 189 to 186 (down 2%); both buyers and sellers were busy in the Escondido housing market in October.
