Oceanside Real Estate Market Report for April 2018


Oceanside beachThe Oceanside real estate market continues to evolve. This market report does not include private sales or manufactured, mobile or multifamily housing; the numbers are taken from the MLS and are believed to be accurate at the time this report was written, but are not guaranteed.


Having data from a knowledgeable REALTOR about local market conditions benefits you as a buyer or seller so you can make informed buying or selling decisions about Oceanside homes for sale.



 Oceanside California – A Growing and Changing Coastal San Diego Community


In April 2018 there were 202 homes sold in Oceanside’s 4 zip codes (92054, 92056, 92057, 92058), a modest drop from March by 7% following a large increase from February. Here’s the breakdown of overall activity.



202 (down 7%), 24 Days on Market, Ave. Sales Price $521,501 (down 1%), Ave. sale 99% of asking price

Detached Homes Sold
110 (down 13%), 18 Days on Market, Ave. Sales Price $580,904 (down 2%), Ave. sale 97% of asking price

Attached Homes Sold
92 (up 1%), 30 Days on Market, Ave. Sales Price $451,533 (up 7%), Ave. sale 98% of asking price


Sales volume decreased in April for detached but rose slightly for attached home sales. We saw a decrease in days on market across the board. 23% of the April home sales were cash transactions, versus 22% last month. Average sale prices decreased slightly for detached homes but increased modestly for attached homes.


Buyers, on average, negotiated 1 - 3% off asking price, however, almost half (49%) of the homes sold for list price or better. The MEDIAN sales price of detached homes was $565,000 (down 1%), and $365,000 (no change) for attached/condos.


There were 11 homes with a CONTINGENT status (typically these are properties waiting for approval by short sale or REO lenders), 3% of the total inventory, compared to 17 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.


Oceanside condos


At the end of April 2018 there were 336 Oceanside homes for sale, a 10% increase from March. This represents an inventory of 1.6 months for detached homes (down from 1.7 months from last month) and 2 months for attached homes (down from 2.1 months last month) based on the current rate of sales over the last 3 months – the Oceanside market remains a very strong seller’s market.


In April 277 Oceanside homes came on the market, down slightly by 2% from last month. The number of Oceanside homes going pending, however, increased, by 4%, to 203 pendings (excluding homes that actually sold in April).
