Buyers in the Encinitas real estate market were able, on average, to negotiate 1% off the asking price based on recent sales, but 48% of the homes sold for asking price or better. 23% of the transactions were for cash (versus 30% in January).


There were no homes with a Contingent status at the end of February, compared to 1 last month (i.e., typically these are short sale and foreclosure homes having offers that are being considered by the lenders). Contingent homes are considered Active and are included in the overall statistics, but some are no longer available to be shown or may not be accepting offers.


For February 2018 the Encinitas real estate inventory increased to 73, up 40% from last month, the second inventory increase in 2018 and good news for Encinitas buyers! This represents an inventory of 1.3 months for attached homes, up from less than a month last month, and 2.1 months for detached homes at the current rate of sales, up from 2 months last month (over a 3-month sales period). The Encinitas real estate market remains a very strong seller’s market, especially for buyers of attached homes.


59 Encinitas homes came on the market in February, compared to 75 new listings last month; similarly, the number of homes going pending in February (excluding homes that actually sold in February), dropped from 51 last month to 39.

Great information for consumers in your area. Looks like there are many areas in the country on the verge of having a shortage of homes for sale.
