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 March 2019 there were 170 homes sold in Oceanside’s 4 zip codes (92054, 92056, 92057, 92058), an increase from February by 8%, the 2nd consecutive increase. Here’s the breakdown of overall activity.


Detached Homes Sold
107 (up 13%), 35 Days on Market, Average Sales Price $584,077 (down 2%), Average sale 98% of original asking price

Attached (condos, town homes) Homes Sold
63 (up 2%), 39 Days on Market, Ave. Sales Price $467,854 (up 4%), Ave. sale 97% of asking price


Sales volume rose in March overall, with significantly more detached home sales. Marketing time decreased slightly for attached homes but dropped by 11 days for detached. 15% of the March home sales were cash transactions, compared to 19% in February. Average sale prices dropped slightly for detached single family homes but increased modestly for attached homes.


Buyers, on average, negotiated 2 - 3% off the original asking price, however, 37% of the home buyers paid full price or better for their homes. The MEDIAN sales price of detached homes was $560,000 (down 3%), and $405,500 (up 4%) for attached/condos.


Oceanside town homes by the beach


There were 15 homes with a CONTINGENT status (often these are properties waiting for approval by short sale or REO lenders, but some homes with this status are sales with a first right of refusal due to contingent offers), compared to 19 last month. These homes are considered active and are included in the statistics below. Most of these homes are contingent sales with first right of refusals due to offers that are contingent on the buyer selling a property, 3 are short sales and 1 is a probate sale.


At the end of March 2019 there were 363 Oceanside homes for sale, a decrease in inventory by 6% from last month, in contrast to a number of toehr communities that saw increases, but well above the inventory for March 2018 by almost 20%!


This represents a supply of only 1.9 months for detached homes (down from 2.1 months last month) and 3.2 months for attached homes (down from 3.4 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 for detached homes and is a strong seller’s market for attached.


In March 247 Oceanside homes came on the market, an increase by 9% from last month. The number of Oceanside homes going pending also increased substantially, by 32%, to 184 pendings (excluding homes that actually sold in March).

HI Jeff Dowler, CRS - Oceanside is a very special place.  Coastal prices are more reasonable and it is very centrally located between Orange County and San Diego.  Also, my son was stationed at Camp Pendelton for a while before going to Bahrain. 

For those looking for property near the water or at the water's edge, they need look no further than the Southern California Relocation Dude.
