In March 2019 there were 112 homes sold in San Marcos’ 2 zip codes (92069 and 92078), a 33% increase from last month, the second increase since the beginning of the year. Here’s the breakdown of overall activity.


Detached Homes Sold
85 (up 44%), 38 Days on Market, Average Sales Price $771,878 (up 8%), Average sale 97% of original asking price

Attached Homes (condos, town homes) Sold
27 (up 8%), 30 Days on Market, Average Sales Price $470,962 (up 18%), Average sale 97% of original asking price


Overall sales volume in March increased substantially compared to last month, especially for detached single family home sales. Average sales prices rose for both detached and attached home sales. Average time on market shifted down modestly for attached properties but remained the same for detached single family homes.


13% of the transactions were for cash, compared to 27% last month. While buyers negotiated sales prices on average by 3% (off original price), 29% of San Marcos home buyers paid full price or more! The median sales price of detached homes was $715,000 (up 8%) and $480,000 (up 17%) for attached homes/condos/town homes.


There were 6 San Marcos homes for sale at the end of March with a Contingent status, compared to 3 last month. All 6 are first right of refusals based on contingent offers accepted by sellers. These homes are included in the overall Active statistics.


The San Marcos real estate market inventory decreased by 3% from February to 164 listings, in contrast to some other communities that saw increases. This represents an inventory of 2.1 months for attached homes (the same as last month) and 1.6 months for detached single family homes (down from 2.5 months last month) based on the current rate of sales over the last 3 months. The San Marcos real estate market remains a very strong seller’s market, especially for detached homes, given buyer demand and current supply.

This overview of the San Marcos real estate market is based on information provided by the MLS for homes that went under contract in the last month of so and closed in March. I can provide more details regarding current activity, within the specific zip codes of San Marcos (92078 and 92069), or on certain neighborhoods of interest including San Elijo Hills, Twin Oaks, Lake San Marcos, or Santa Fe Hills.

San Marcos is definitely a strong market. It still has the allure of beach property but is far enough inland to enjoy more moderate pricing yet still enjoy the cooler temps than the inland areas of CA.

Jeff, the San Marcos market is definitely strong and your market report shows why. Buyers need to be prepared to act quickly, particularly when looking for a detached home. As always your market reports are detailed yet very easy to understand. Great job!
