Here is a summary of the Rancho Santa Fe housing market for July 2019 based on information from the MLS (private sales are not included). These data are deemed reliable at the time this report was written but are not guaranteed.


  •         Sales of detached homes for July dropped from 18 last month to 16. There were 3 attached (condos, town homes) home sales in July, compared to 6 last month. 42% of the transactions were cash, versus 29% in June.
  •         The average sales price of the detached homes was $2,754,022, up 14% from the average sales price last month (no doubt impacted by the sale of 5 homes for over $3M that raised the average substantially). The average price of the attached homes was $1,211,500, up 49% (with 1 sale at $1.2M and 1 at over $1.6M). The median sales price for detached homes was $2,751,056 (up 22%) and $1,200,000 for attached homes (up 44%), both impacted by the higher priced sales in July compared to June.
  •         Average marketing time for the detached homes was 88 days compared to 123 in June; the attached properties sold in an average of only 26 days (versus 63 days last month).
  •         The detached homes sold, on average, for 92% of the original asking price; the attached homes sold at 97% of original list price. 1 detached single family home buyer paid asking price for their new home.
  •         As of the end of July there was 1 home in the Rancho Santa Fe real estate market with a Contingent status (i.e., typically these are short sale and REO homes that have offers being reviewed by the lenders) versus 2 last month. This home is a short sale.


As of the end of July 2019 there were 250 Rancho Santa Fe homes for sale (97% of these are detached single family homes), up 2% from June and the 7th consecutive increase in inventory. This represents an inventory of 2 months for attached homes (down from 2.1 months last month) and 11.9 months for detached homes at the current rate of sales (based on a 6-month period), up from 11.1 months last month.


The high end market continues to shift in Rancho Santa Fe, and is a market that strongly favors buyers for detached single family homes, luxury properties and estates as it has for some time, and remains a strong seller’s market for buyers of attached properties, a market of limited inventory.
