 Escondido Real Estate Market Report for January 2011

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 January 2011 there were 113 homes sold in the Escondido real estate market, a decline of 24% from December. Here's the breakdown of overall activity.

Since I am in the thick of things in Escondido, I can attest to the fact that January had a lot more closings than February.
