Escondido Real Estate Market in February 2020


California Center for the Arts in Escondido CAEscondido is an inland community in North San Diego County, about 20 miles from the beaches, depending on your route, and just east of San Marcos.


It’s important for buyers and sellers in the Escondido housing market to understand recent trends and current local market conditions in order to make informed decisions about buying and selling Escondido homes for sale.

The following data are taken from the MLS (private sales are not included in these statistics, nor are multifamily properties, or mobile and manufactured homes). The data are believed to be reliable at the time this report was written but are not guaranteed.


A total of 130 homes sold in February, 4 more than last month (up 3%). Here’s the breakdown of activity.


Detached Homes Sold
107 (no change), 42 Days on Market, Average Sales Price $647,565 (up 4%), Average sale 98% of original asking price


Attached Homes (condos, town homes) Sold
23 (up 15%), 18 Days on Market, Average Sales Price $323,017 (down 10%), Average sale 99% of original asking price


Home sales in February rose by 4 overall, with 1 more detached sale and 3 more attached sales. The average sales price rose modestly for detached homes, but declined for attached homes compared to January.


While buyers were able to negotiate an average of 1 - 2% off the original list price, almost half (47%) of the home buyers paid full price or more for their homes, which is likely due to competitive bidding in many cases. 5% of the Escondido home buyers paid cash. Average marketing time did not change for detached single family homes but was significantly shorter for attached home sales – 10 of the homes, almost half, went pending in 7 days or less!


The MEDIAN sales price of the detached homes sold was $639,000 (up 7%), and $314,000 (down 5%) for attached homes compared to last month.


There were 18 Escondido homes on the market with a Contingent status (i.e., in some cases these are short sale or REO homes that have offers being considered by lenders but others are first right of refusals), versus 15 last month; 6 are short sales and the rest are first right of refusals. These are included in the statistics below.

At the end of February there were 215 homes for sale in Escondido, just 2 less than last month. This represents an inventory of only 1 month for attached properties (dropping from 1.1 months last month), and 1.6 months for detached homes (no change from last month), based on the current rate of sales over the last 3 months. Escondido remains a very strong seller’s market.


In February 192 homes came on the market, 85% more new listings than in January which was good news for buyers. Similarly, the number of homes going pending (141), excluding homes that closed in February, was 29% higher than in January.
