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 March 2010 (the data are believed accurate but are not guaranteed, and do not include private sales). 

12 homes sold in the Del Mar real estate market in April, 1 more than in March. Here's a summary of the activity:

Sales volume rose over the prior month with 1 more home sold, and with an average increase in prices overall and for detached homes. It would be unwise to draw an conclusions given the relatively small number of sales. 

There were 11 Del Mar homes on the market at the end of April with a Contingent status (i.e., homes with offers being reviewed by short sale and REO lenders, 6% of the total number of homes for sale). These are included in the overall Active statistics below.

41 homes entered the Del Mar real estate market in April, up 14% from March, following last month's decline from February. 

There were 167 Del Mar homes for sale at the end of April, a modest increase of 4% over MArch, but the 4th consecutive monthly increase. At the current rate of sales over a 6-month period, this represents an inventory of 12.3 months for detached homes (up from 12 last month), and 13.8 months for attached properties, up from 9.9 months as of the end of March. 

20 Del Mar homes went pending in April, 33% more than last month.

How Important is Inventory when Buying or Selling? Very!! 

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.
