Buyers and sellers in the Encinitas real estate market need to understand local market conditions in order to make informed decisions about Encinitas homes for sale.
Here’s what happened in the Encinitas housing market for October 2018 based on data from the MLS (private sales are not included nor are manufactured, mobile or multi-family homes). These data are deemed reliable at the time this was written, but are not guaranteed.
In October 46 homes sold in Encinitas, a decrease in sales by 10% from last month. Here’s the breakdown of overall activity.

There were no homes with a Contingent status at the end of October, the same as the last 3 months (i.e., typically these are short sale and foreclosure homes with offers that are being considered by the lenders). Contingent homes are considered Active and are included in the overall statistics, but some are no longer available to be shown or may not be accepting offers.
For October 2018 the Encinitas real estate inventory increased slightly by 2% to 130…more good news for Encinitas buyers! This represents an inventory of 1.6 months for attached homes, down from 2.2 months last month, and 3.2 months for detached homes at the current rate of sales, up from 2.5 months last month (over a 3-month sales period). The Encinitas real estate market remains a strong seller’s market, especially for buyers of attached homes.
75 Encinitas homes came on the market in October, compared to 79 new listings last month (down 5%); the number of homes going pending in October (excluding homes that actually sold in October) remained the same (49) as in September.
