Here is a summary of the Rancho Santa Fe housing market for September 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 September were the same as last month, at 19. There were no attached (condos, town homes) home sales in September, versus 3 last month. 42% of the transactions were cash, compared to 41% in August.
  •         The average sales price of the detached homes was $3,009,626, up 9% from the average sales price last month. The median sales price for detached homes was $2,600,000 (down 16%).
  •         Average marketing time for the detached homes was 68 days compared to 93 in August.
  •         The detached homes sold, on average, for 92% of the original asking price; 2 detached home buyers paid over asking price for their new homes.
  •         As of the end of September there were 0 homes 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.


As of the end of September 2019 there were 240 Rancho Santa Fe homes for sale (96% of these are detached single family homes), down 7% from August and the first decline following 8 months of inventory increase. This represents an inventory of 5 months for attached homes (up from 2.8 months last month) and 12.8 months for detached homes at the current rate of sales (based on a 6-month period), down from 13.9 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 (with greater opportunities for negotiation) as it has for some time, and is a seller’s market for buyers of attached properties, a market of continued limited inventory.
