At the end of September 2017 there were no homes in the Cardiff housing market with a Contingent status (i.e., for the most part short sale and REO homes that have accepted offers being reviewed by the lenders), compared to 1 last month. This information is included in the total of active listings.



As of the end of September 2017 there were 23 Cardiff homes for sale, an 18% decrease in inventory from August. This represents an inventory of 1.3 months for attached homes (down from 1.8 months last month), and 2.3 months for detached homes (down from 2.7 months last month).  The Cardiff market remains very competitive for buyers, and is a very strong seller’s market for buyers of attached and detached homes.

Hi Jeff -- San Diego County has so many great beach or beach-adjacent places to live.   Cardiff-By-The-Sea definitely has a lot of appeal(and some good memories) for me.   

Nice look at the current market and for anyone interested in making a move, your' local perspective and knowledge is quite beneficial.
