In August 2020 there were 148 homes sold in San Marcos’ 2 zip codes (92069 and 92078), 5 more home sales than last month, and another solid month of housing activity. Here’s the breakdown:

Detached Homes Sold
98 (down by 1), 19 Days on Market, Average Sales Price $829,750 (up 1%), Average sale 99% of original asking price

Attached Homes (condos, town homes) Sold

50 (up 14%), 19 Days on Market, Average Sales Price $459,454 (up 1%), Average sale 99% of original asking price

 

Overall sales volume in August was a little higher than last month, with a slight decline in detached sales but an increase in attached sales. The average sales price shifted up slightly for both detached single family homes and attached homes. The average time on the market was shorter for both detached homes and attached homes, and less than 3 weeks.

 

9% of the transactions were for cash, vs. 12% last month. While buyers negotiated sales prices on average by 1% off original price, over half of the San Marcos home buyers, 57%, paid full price or more for their new homes, a reflection of the competition and multiple offers! The median sales price of detached homes was $787,500 (up 5%) and $484,500 (up 2%) for attached homes.

 

There were 3 San Marcos homes for sale at the end of August with a Contingent status, versus 4 last month. All 3 were first right of refusals. These homes are included in the overall Active statistics. 

                                                                                                                                                                                        

The San Marcos housing inventory declined from last month by 8%, with 77 homes for sale, another drop in supply. This represents an inventory of less than 1 month for attached homes (like last month) and less than 1 month for detached single family homes (like last month) based on the rate of sales over the last 3 months.

 

The San Marcos real estate market remains a very strong seller’s market, based on the buyer demand and current inventory, even during the pandemic, and became even more competitive, with fewer homes for sale in August.

 

San Marcos townhomes

 

In August 2020 we saw 124 homes come on the market, 10% fewer than last month, despite the pandemic but that’s still 4 new listings daily. The number of homes going pending decreased as well, by 21%, to 106 pendings (excluding the homes that closed in August), but still a busy month for buyers and sellers.

 

This overview of the San Marcos real estate market is based on data from the MLS for homes that went under contract in the last month or so and closed in August. I can provide more details regarding current activity, within the specific zip codes of San Marcos (92078 and 92069), or in neighborhoods that may interest you including San Elijo Hills, Twin Oaks, Lake San Marcos, or Santa Fe Hills.
