San Marcos Home Sales for June 2019


San Elijo Hills town center in San MarcosThe San Marcos real estate market continues to shift. These data do not include private sales or manufactured housing; the data are derived from the MLS and are believed to be accurate at the time this report was published, but are not guaranteed.


Having details about up-to-date local market conditions benefits you as a buyer or seller so you can make informed decisions about buying and selling San Marcos homes for sale.

In June 2019 there were 108 homes sold in San Marcos’ 2 zip codes (92069 and 92078), an 11% decrease from last month. Here’s the breakdown of overall activity.


Detached Homes Sold
89 (down 3%), 19 Days on Market, Average Sales Price $758,921 (up 5%), Average sale 97% of original asking price

Attached Homes (condos, town homes) Sold
19 (down 37%), 28 Days on Market, Average Sales Price $440,907 (up 8%), Average sale 95% of original asking price


Overall sales volume in June decreased modestly compared to last month, especially for attached single family home sales. Average sales prices rose modestly for both detached single family homes and attached homes. Average time on market dropped again for detached homes but remained the same at less than 1 month for attached homes.


12% of the transactions were for cash, compared to 11% last month. While buyers negotiated sales prices on average by 3 to 5% (off original price), 40% of San Marcos home buyers paid full price or more for their new homes, a good indicator of competition and multiple offers! The median sales price of detached homes was $719,000 (up 6%) and $492,500 (up 17%) for attached homes/condos/town homes.


There were 10 San Marcos homes for sale at the end of June with a Contingent status, versus 14 last month. 1 is a short sale, and 1 is subject to court approval; the other 8 are first right of refusals. These homes are included in the overall Active statistics.                                                                                                                                                                                   

The San Marcos real estate market inventory increased again, by 10%, from May to 238 listings. This represents an inventory of 1.9 months for attached homes (down from 2.2 months last month) and 2.8 months for detached single family homes (up from 1.8 months last month) based on the current rate of sales over the last 3 months. The San Marcos real estate market remains a very strong seller’s market, based on the buyer demand and current inventory.

In June 2019 we saw 156 homes come on the market, 5% more than last month. Similarly the number of homes going pending in June also increased, by 12, to 121 pendings (excluding homes that sold in June).

What a nice thing to say Endre Barath, Jr.  - sorry it took so long to respond to your kind words.

I think some of this is our summer, where things tend to slow down down some, James Dray but one month of data may not mean much!


Posted by Jeff Dowler, CRS, The Southern California Relocation Dude (eXp Realty of California) 10 months ago

Thank you Barbara Todaro  - despite the shift in sales it remains a strong market, and that is just 1 month of data.

Overall that certainly has been the trend Wayne Martin 

Enjoy your weekend!
