Escondido's California Center for the Arts

Escondido is an inland community, about 15 miles from the coast adjacent to San Marcos. Like its neighbors, San Marcos, Vista and Oceanside, Escondido has seen fairly significant shifts in the real estate market with a large number of short sales and foreclosures.

As a buyer or seller in the Escondido real estate market, understanding recent trends and current market conditions is essential in order to make informed decisions; media reports focus on general market conditions and therefore will not provide an accurate picture of the local Escondido real estate market

The following data are taken from the San Diego MLS (private sales are not included in these statistics, nor are multifamily properties or mobile/manufactured homes). The data are believed to be reliable but are not guaranteed. 

In October 2010 there were 125 homes sold in the Escondido real estate market, 9% less than last month. Here's the breakdown of overall activity.

Thanks, Ginny. The numbers in Escondido have been fairly consistent. And with all the REOs and short sales things have sold pretty well at the lower end.
