Prices Remain Stable, Higher Than a Year Ago, According to Greater San Diego Association of REALTORS(R)

Home Sales Saw a Seasonal Drop in January

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/10/14 -- Although home sales saw a seasonal drop in January, prices remained stable and much higher than a year ago, according to the regional housing statistics from the Greater San Diego Association of REALTORS® (SDAR).

Sales of existing homes in San Diego County dropped in January compared to December, a seasonal, after-the-holidays slump. Single-family homes saw a month-over-month drop of 22 percent, and were 21 percent lower than a year ago. Condos and townhomes also saw a drop of 16 percent from December, but the number of sales was comparable to a year ago.

The median price of previously owned single-family homes in San Diego County was $475,000 last month -- virtually unchanged from December, but 22 percent higher than a year ago. The median price of condos and townhomes sold in January 2014 increased by about 2 percent over the previous month, and is up more than 24 percent from a year ago.

"We are still waiting for inventory to pick up," said 2014 SDAR President Leslie Kilpatrick. "Sales have been slow, but I expect more sellers to jump into the market as we approach the spring buying season. My mantra has always been: 'The best time to buy is when you can.'"

In January, the zip codes with the most sales of single-family homes included: 92028/Fallbrook - 42; 91911/Chula Vista - 32; 92071/Santee - 31; 92114/Encanto - 29; and 92130/Carmel Valley - 29.

The most expensive San Diego County listing sold last month: A 4-bedroom, 5-bath, 4,500-square-foot home in La Jolla that sold for $7.8 million.
