Here is a summary of the Rancho Santa Fe housing market for June 2018 based on information from the MLS (private sales are not included). These data are deemed reliable at the time of this report but are not guaranteed.

  •         The average sales price of the detached homes sold was $2,765,632, an increase by 28% from the May average sales price (in large part due to the sale of 8 homes at over $3M).
