Escondido Real Estate Market in August 2018


Caifornia Center for the Arts in EscondidoEscondido is an inland community, about 17 miles from the beaches and just east of San Marcos.


It’s important for buyers and sellers in the Escondido housing market to understand recent trends and current local market conditions in order to make informed decisions about buying and selling Escondido homes for sale.

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.


Here’s the breakdown of overall activity.



181 (up 1%), 34 Days on Market, Ave. Sales Price $645,518 (down 4%), Ave. sale 97% of asking price,

Detached Homes Sold
144 (up 2%), 38 Days on Market, Ave. Sales Price $603,051 (down 5%), Ave. sale 97% of asking price

Attached Homes (condos, town homes) Sold
37 (down 5%), 19 Days on Market, Ave. Sales Price $321,606 (down 3%), Ave. sale 98% of asking price


In August 2018 there were 181 homes sold in Escondido, an increase by 1 from last month. Average sale prices decreased modestly for detached homes and for attached homes. Buyers were able to negotiate an average of 2 - 3% off their sales price; however, 35% of the homes sold for asking price or more. 10% of the transactions were for cash, compared to 11% last month. Days on market increased modestly for both attached homes (condos, town homes) and detached single family homes.


The MEDIAN price of the detached homes sold was $579,000 (down 5%), with $317,000 (down 1%) for attached homes compared to last month.


There were 23 Escondido homes (6% 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 6 last month; a number of these are first right of refusals. These are included in the statistics below.

At the end of August there were 405 homes for sale in Escondido, an increase in inventory, by 4%, from last month, and 71% more inventory than we saw at the beginning of 2018. This represents an inventory of 1.2 months for attached properties (the same as last month), and 2.5 months for detached homes (up from 2.3 months last month), based on the current rate of sales over the last 3 months. Escondido remains a very strong seller’s market.


In August 236 homes came on the market, another decline in new listings, by 9%, compared to last month. Similarly, the number of homes going pending (143), excluding homes that closed, decreased by 19% from July pendings.

Thank you kindly Jim Crawford  It's a community I know pretty well and there is a wide range of opportunity there, and inventory has shifted upwards substantially this year.
