Active Listings Top 7,000 for First Time in Two Years, According to Greater San Diego Association of REALTORS(R)

Median Price Reaches $500,000 for First Time Since 2007

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/09/14 -- Housing prices and inventory increased in May while sales of previously owned homes in San Diego County retreated, according to new housing statistics from the Greater San Diego Association of REALTORS® (SDAR).

The number of active listings in San Diego County on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) surpassed 7,000 for the first time in two years, but homes are being snapped up fast than ever. Resale homes are only spending an average of 40 days on the market before close of escrow.

The median price of single-family resale homes reached the $500,000 mark in May, an increase of nearly 2 percent from April and a new high; the last time the median price was $500,000 was in November 2007. Condo and townhome prices edged up slightly to $335,000. Single-family detached homes saw a drop in sales of 14 percent in May from the previous month, while attached homes (condos and townhomes) fell by 26 percent.

"The market will experience month-to-month variances, but the housing market in San Diego remains strong," said SDAR 2014 President Leslie Kilpatrick. "More homes are on the market and buyers are scooping them up quickly. That's an encouraging sign."

In June, the zip codes in San Diego County with the most single-family home sales were: 92057 (Oceanside) with 56; 92027 (Escondido) with 52; 92130 (Carmel Valley) with 49; 92028 (Fallbrook) with 48; and 92009 (Carlsbad) with 48.

The most expensive San Diego County listing sold last month: A 6-bedroom, 7-bath, 7,228-square-foot home in Coronado that sold for $10.5 million.
