The following data are taken from the San Diego MLS for Solana Beach real estate (private sales are not included in these statistics, nor are multifamily properties or mobile/manufactured housing). The data are believed to be reliable at the time the report was published, but are not guaranteed.

Overall sales volume in the Solana Beach housing market for September increased from August, especially for detached homes, in contrast to other communities that saw a drop in sales. Average sales prices decreased for detached and for attached homes, as did the average time on the market. We are still seeing negotiation in prices, on average 3 - 7%, however 33% of the homes sold for asking price or better. 33% of the homes sold for cash, compared to 63% last month.



The MEDIAN sales price of a detached home was $1,336,750 (down 11%), and $727,882 (down 29%) for attached. Given the number of sales, one cannot draw any firm conclusions about pricing trends over just a 1-month period.



At the end of September 2017 there were 38 homes for sale in Solana Beach, an increase of 9%, the second increase in inventory, another contrast with other communities. There were no contingent listings (typically short sale or REO homes with offers being reviewed by lenders and considered active) as in the last several months. This represents an inventory of 1.9 months for attached homes (the same as last month) and 1.2 months for detached (the same as last month) based on the current rate of sales over the last 6 months. Housing remains very competitive for buyers in Solana Beach, and is a very strong sellers’ market for both detached and attached homes.



In September 20 new listings hit the Solana Beach real estate market, about 31% fewer than in August; similarly, the number of homes going pending decreased to 12 (down 54%) from last month.


This overview of the Solana Beach real estate market is based on information provided by the MLS for homes that went under contract in the last 1 or 2 months and closed in September.

Hi Jeff: That's interesting that the pending sales are picking up now and moving faster. Still, a month on market is still pretty good. Beats 6 months. And with low inventory, won't the demand continue, you think, through fall?

Hi Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents 

Yep I do think the demand will continue this fall. The sales volume shift up was a contrast to most other nearby communities. But each one is unique.
