Sales volume in the Solana Beach real estate market for March rose significantly, especially for attached. Average sale prices for both detached and attached – 20% of these transactions were cash. We are still seeing negotiation in prices, on average from 4 - 6%. Given the small number of sales, one cannot draw any firm conclusions about pricing trends.

At the end of March 2012 there were 83 Solana Beach homes for sale, down 9% from February’s inventory, another decline, making the Solana Beach market more competitive for buyers. 16 of these homes are “contingent” (short sale or REO homes with offers being reviewed by lenders and considered active). This represents an inventory of 7.2 months for attached homes (down from 9.7 months last month) and 4.4 months for detached (down from 4.7 months in February) based on the current rate of sales over the last 6 months, good news for sellers.

From these stats, the numbers appear that supply and demand is back and this is a positive sign for any local market.

George - well it is pretty significant given the overall small number of homes.

Emily - demand is definitely increasing.
