Having up to date information on the local Del Mar real estate market is important for buyers and sellers to be able to make informed decisions about buying and selling property. Here are the statistics obtained from the MLS for Del Mar for February 2010 (the data are believed accurate but are not guaranteed, and do not include private sales). 

10 homes sold in the Del Mar real estate market in February, 3 more than the number sold in January. Here's a summary of the activity:

As with any statistic, 1 month of numbers is not a trend, so it is important to watch what is and has been happening over a period of time. One should not draw any firm conclusions regarding pricing because of the extremes in the Del Mar real estate market, as well as the fairly small number of sales, however there are some encouraging numbers regarding a more stable inventory with fairly consistent sales.

Jeff, these numbers are very impressive! If I were a seller in the area I'd be thrilled.If I was an agent in the area I'd wonder if there was enough inventory to go around?
