In October 2018 there were 77 homes sold in San Marcos’ 2 zip codes (92069 and 92078), the same as last month. Here’s the breakdown of overall activity.

 

TOTAL HOMES SOLD

77 (no change), 34 Days on Market, Ave. Sales Price $669,206 (up 2%), Ave. sale 96% of asking price

Detached Homes Sold
47 (down 13%), 31 Days on Market, Ave. Sales Price $805,551 (up 5%), Ave. sale 96% of asking price

Attached Homes (condos, town homes) Sold
30 (up 30%), 39 Days on Market, Ave. Sales Price $455,599 (up 16%), Ave. sale 97% of asking price

 

Overall sales volume in October remained the same as last month but with fewer detached home sales but more attached. Average time on market shifted up for attached homes but did not change for detached.

 

22% of the transactions were for cash, compared to 16% last month. Buyers negotiated their asking prices on average by 3 - 4%, but 25% of the homes sold at or above asking price! The median sales price of detached homes was $665,000 (down 9%) and $469,500 (up 24%) for attached homes/condos/town homes.

 

There were 11 San Marcos homes for sale at the end of October with a Contingent status (4% of the total) the same as last month. Typically these are homes with offers awaiting approval from short sale and REO lenders, but some are first right of refusals based on contingent offer. These homes are included in the overall Active statistics.

The San Marcos real estate market inventory decreased by 9% from September to 239. This represents an inventory of 2.6 months for attached homes (down from 2.7 months last month) and 2.8 months for detached (up from 2.5 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 the buyer demand and current inventory.

 

In October 2018 we saw 124 homes come on the market, a decrease in new listings, by 17%, from last month. In contrast the number of homes going pending in October increased, by 5%, to 77 pendings (excluding homes that sold last month).

 

This overview of the San Marcos real estate market is based on information provided by the MLS for homes that went under contract in the last month of so and closed in October.
