Here is a summary of the Rancho Santa Fe housing market for October 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 October dropped modestly from last month, from 19 to 17. There was 1 attached (condos, town homes) home sale in October, versus none last month. 56% of the transactions were cash, compared to 42% in September.
  •         The average sales price of the detached homes was $2,905,964, down 3% from the average sales price last month. The attached home sold for $1,185,000. The median sales price for detached homes was $2,565,000 (down 1%).
  •         Average marketing time for the detached homes was 102 days compared to 68 in September.
  •         The detached homes sold, on average, for 88% of the original asking price – all homes sold for less than original asking price.
  •         As of the end of October there were no 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 but sometimes they are first right of refusals), the same as last month.


As of the end of October 2019 there were 223 Rancho Santa Fe homes for sale (96% of these are detached single family homes), down 7% from September and the second decline. This represents an inventory of 6 months for attached homes (up from 5 months last month) and 11.4 months for detached homes at the current rate of sales (based on a 6-month period), down from 12.8 months last month.
