Market Report and San Diego Real Estate Market Update for July 2014

Housing seemed to have a slow start to the spring selling season, but appearances deceive. Dig into that spring soil and you begin to unearth differences in individual areas and market segments. Inventory is slowly rising in some areas. Activity is picking up in the upper price tiers. Rents continue to climb in most metros. And interest rates are generally lower than a year ago, to the surprise of some and the delight of others.

We expect the San Diego to be constrained by low inventory levels but it appears we are trending to a more stable market. As June 2014 closes, the available homes for sale listed as “Active” has increased to 3.1 months.
