Vista Home Sales for June 2020


Search for homes for sale in VistaVista is an inland community in North San Diego County, bordering Carlsbad, Oceanside and San Marcos. The community offers a diverse range of housing in tract home communities, rental complexes and 55+ communities, as well in more rural settings. There are mixed use and agricultural areas, plus a growing downtown offering abundant shopping, dining and services.


The Moonlight Amphitheater (outdoor stage productions and concerts) near the Village is a popular area attraction during the summer months.


It’s important for buyers and sellers in the Vista housing market to understand recent trends and current local market conditions in order to make informed decisions about buying and selling Vista 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 121 homes sold in June, more than double the number of sales from last month, despite the pandemic. Here’s the breakdown of activity.


Detached Homes Sold
95 (up 143%), 26 Days on Market, Average Sales Price $643,550 (down 6%), Average sales price was 99% of original asking price


Attached Homes (condos, town homes) Sold
26 (up 100%), 44 Days on Market, Average Sales Price $439,744 (down 7%), Average sales price was 99% of original asking price


Home sales in June rose dramatically, for both detached and attached sales. The average sales price dropped for both detached and attached homes. Marketing time was shorter for the detached home sales but longer for attached.


While buyers were able to negotiate and average of 1% off the original list price, half the buyers paid full price or more for their homes, likely due to competitive bidding in many cases. 6% of the Vista home buyers paid cash for their homes, the same as last month.


The MEDIAN sales price of the detached homes sold was $600,000 (down 2%), and $455,468 (down 8%) for attached homes compared to last month.


At the end of June there were 116 homes for sale in Vista, ranging in price from $285,000 to $7,900,000, down 11% from last month. This represents an inventory of only 1.5 months for attached properties (down from 2.3 months last month), and 1.4 months for detached homes (down from 1.6 months last month), based on the current rate of sales over the last 3 months. Vista remains a very strong seller’s market despite the pandemic.

In June 126 homes came on the market, 20% more new listings than in May, despite the pandemic, which is good news for buyers. Similarly, the number of homes going pending (104), excluding homes that closed in June, increased over May, although modestly with 3 more pending homes, thus it was another busy month during the pandemic.

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS - I can see that you can get some more reasonable prices if you don't have to be right on top of the beach

Morning Jeff.

I noticed the sales price dropping a bit, pity.  In my area, the price of homes continue to rise.
