Sales volume decreased in September overall, for both detached and attached home sales. We saw a slight increase in days on market across the board. 21% of the September home sales were cash transactions, compared to 22% last month. Average sale prices decreased slightly for detached homes but more modestly for attached single family homes.


Buyers, on average, negotiated 2 - 3% off asking price, however, 39% of the homes sold for list price or better. The MEDIAN sales price of detached homes was $542,600 (down 2%), and $350,000 (up 7%) for attached/condos.


There were 14 homes with a CONTINGENT status (typically these are properties waiting for approval by short sale or REO lenders), 6% of the total inventory, compared to 26 last month. These homes are considered active and are included in the statistics below. Some homes with this status may still allow showings or back-up offers. Homes in contingent status can sometimes remain on the market for a number of months awaiting lender approval.


At the end of September 2017 there were 254 Oceanside homes for sale, a 23% decrease from August. This represents an inventory of less than 1 month for detached homes (down from 1.4 months last month) and 1.3 months for attached homes (down from 1.5 months last month) based on the current rate of sales over the last 6 months – the Oceanside market remains very competitive and remains a very strong seller’s market.


In September 204 Oceanside homes came on the market, 25% fewer than last month. The number of Oceanside homes going pending also decreased, by 20%, to 188 pendings (excluding homes that actually sold in September).

Hi Jeff, 

You provide a lot of information that can be very useful to clients in the Oceanside CA market. However, these buyers and sellers need you to explain what the numbers mean and how this information may affect them when selling or purchasing. There is no better agent for the job than you!

Hi Sheri Sperry - MCNE® 

An excellent point as buyers, and sellers, often don't understand the impact of the current market conditions on their potential buying and selling decision-making.

Thanks for stopping by!
