Having up to date information on the local Del Mar real estate market is important for buyers and sellers to make informed decisions about buying and selling Del Mar homes. Here are the statistics obtained from the MLS for Del Mar for November 2011 (the data are believed accurate but are not guaranteed, and do not include private sales). 

11 homes sold in the Del Mar real estate market in November, 21% fewer than in October. Here's a summary of the activity:

Overall sales volume shifted down fairly significantly, but while detached home sales dropped dramatically, there was a doubling of attached home sales. Sale prices of detached homes rose substantially, but this was due to the fact that all sales were above $1.75 million, with 1 in the low $4 million range. In contrast, 4 of the 6 attached homes sold for under $300K, dropping the average price significantly. And Days on Market also rose significantly to more than4.5 months.

There were 7 Del Mar homes on the market at the end of November 2011 with a Contingent status (i.e., homes with offers being reviewed by short sale and REO lenders, 5% of the total number of homes for sale). These are included in the overall Active statistics below. 

33 homes entered the Del Mar real estate market in November, 2 more (6%) than in October. 17 Del Mar homes went pending in November, a significant jump by 89% over October pendings.

There were 150 Del Mar homes for sale at the end of November, a downward shift by 6% from October, the 3rd month of inventory decline. At the current rate of sales over a 6-month period, this represents an inventory of 8.5 months for detached homes (up from 8 last month), and 8.1 months for attached properties, down from 9.5 months in October.

As with any statistic, 1 month of numbers does not establish 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.

Jeff, You certainly know the Del Mar real estate market.  I suspect the shift down in sales volume is largely attributed to the time of year .. and not the economy or overall market.  It will be interesting to see what the Del Mar real estate market does in the New Year.
