The following data are taken from the San Diego MLS (private sales are not included in these statistics, nor are multifamily properties, or mobile and manufactured homes). The data are believed to be reliable at the time this report was written but are not guaranteed.

In July 2018 there were 180 homes sold in Escondido, an increase of 8% from last month. Average sale prices increased modestly for detached homes but did not shift for attached homes. Buyers were able to negotiate an average of 1 - 3% off their sales price; however, 41% of the homes sold for asking price or more.


11% of the transactions were for cash, compared to 20% last month. Days on market decreased for attached homes (condos, town homes) but went up for detached homes.

There were 6 Escondido homes (2% of all active properties) on the market with a Contingent status (i.e., in most cases these are short sale or REO homes that have offers being considered by lenders), versus 15 last month; some of these are first right of refusals. These are included in the statistics below.
