As a buyer or seller in the Solana Beach real estate market, understanding recent trends and current market conditions is essential in order to make informed decisions; media reports focus on general market statistics and therefore will not provide you with an accurate picture of the Solana Beach real estate market conditions.

Sales volume in the Solana Beach real estate market for October remained the same as last month. Average sales prices rose for detached single family homes, but declined for attached homes. Interestingly the average time needed to sell these homes remained well below 2 months, the lowest in the coastal area. Given the small number of sales, one cannot draw any firm conclusions about pricing trends.

 

At the end of October 2011 there were 118 Solana Beach homes for sale, just 1 less than at the end of September, another decline, making the Solana Beach market more competitive for buyers. Thirteen of these homes are “contingent” (short sale or REO homes with offers being reviewed by lenders and considered active). This represents an inventory of 8.3 months for attached homes (the same as last month) and 8.8 months for detached (down from 9.4 months in September) based on the current rate of sales over the last 6 months.
