Here is a summary of the Rancho Santa Fe housing market for June 2020 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.


  •         There were 20 sales of detached homes for June, double the number for last month, a trend seen in other communities. There were 4 attached (condos, town homes) home sales in June compared to none last month. 46% of the transactions were for cash.
  •         The average sales price of the detached homes was $3,077,910, up 21% from the average sales price last month, and no doubt impacted by the sale of 4 homes over $4M with 1 selling at $10.5M that raised the average compared to last month. The median sales price for detached homes was $2,840,000 (3% higher).
  •         Average marketing time for the detached homes was 86 days compared to 65 days last month.
  •         The detached homes sold, on average, for 87% of the original asking price with several well below asking price – 2 detached homes sold for original asking price.
  •         As of the end of June 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) the same as the last 4 months.


At the end of June 2020 there were 185 Rancho Santa Fe homes for sale (98% of these are detached single family homes), ranging in price from $925,000 to $39,000,000, 12% more than in May and good news for buyers. This represents inventory of 2 months for attached homes (up from 1.7 months in May) and 12.3 months for detached homes at the current rate of sales (based on a 6-month period), down from 12.6 months last month.

The number of Rancho Santa Fe homes coming on the market in June rose substantially from 39 in May to 56, despite the pandemic. The number of homes going pending in June, 33 (excluding those that closed escrow), also increased significantly from last month’s 25 pendings.
