Similar to previous months, the San Diego County market finished May in a state of flux. The market saw drops in sales, a slowing sales pace and gains in inventory and listing discount despite a healthy bump in home prices. Going into the summer sales season, San Diego is an interesting market to track as it is defying traditional economic principles of supply and demand. However, with more homebuyers traditionally looking to make their move in the summer, the impact on home prices by the flood of inventory could be reduced. The peripheral statistics of sales pace and listing discount hint that some price regression is in store, but we will have to see how things shake out in the coming months. Either way, home sellers should be realistic with their expectations if they wish to cash in during prime house-hunting season.

There were 3,208 properties that changed hands in San Diego County in May, a 6.9% drop from the same month last year. Additionally, the closed sales volume finished 3.5% lower, coming in at $2,302,876,000. Despite the drops in activity, the average closed sale price increased by 3.6% to $717,900. The average price per square foot also saw a slight increase (1.1%), finishing at $398.30. Inventory levels shot up by 14.3% to 6,740 units. The sales pace slowed, finishing at 29 days on average, representing a 20.8% increase compared to last May. The listing discount (sold price versus list price) came in at 97.9%, a 0.2% drop. Overall, the market has 2.1 months of inventory to meet demand, a 23.5% increase over last year.

With drops in activity, relatively flat prices and climbing inventory levels, San Diego County is pacing back toward a buyers’ market. However, the market is showing some reluctance to this change, unlike what we are seeing in Orange County and the San Gabriel Valley. That being said, there are signs that the market is due to swing back toward favorable buyer conditions, including a slowing sales pace and relatively significant discounts on the list price of homes. As inventory levels go up, we expect to see more potential homebuyers continue to practice patience as they wait for home prices to meet their valuation of the market. With the summer sales season coming, usually peak season for most of our Southern California coastal markets, it will be interesting to see how rising inventory and consumer impressions of home valuations affect home prices and buyer demand.

San Diego County saw 2,987 homes change hands in April, a 4.8% drop from the same period last year. Those transactions accounted for a decrease of 3.0% to the total sales volume, which finished at $2,114,337,000 for the month. The average price for a closed home came in at $707,800 which is a slight (1.9%) bump from the same period last year. However, the average price per square foot saw a 1.1% drop, finishing at $388.70 per square foot countywide. The market finished with 6,424 homes on the market, a 14.4% increase from the same period year-over-year. The sales pace (average days on market) was 31 days, a 24.0% increase from 2018. Additionally, the listing discount (sold versus list price) finished at 97.7%, a 0.5% drop compared to last year. Overall, the county sits with an inventory of 2.2 months, a 22.2% increase from 2018.
