In May 2019 there were 122 homes sold in San Marcos’ 2 zip codes (92069 and 92078), a 15% increase from last month. Here’s the breakdown of overall activity

Detached Homes Sold
92 (up 12%), 28 Days on Market, Average Sales Price $723,525 (up 3%), Average sale 99% of original asking price

Attached Homes (condos, town homes) Sold
30 (up 25%), 28 Days on Market, Average Sales Price $408,290 (down 30%), Average sale 98% of original asking price

 

Overall sales volume in May increased compared to last month, especially for attached single family home sales. Average sales prices rose modestly for detached homes but declined for attached home sales. Average time on market dropped below 1 month for both detached and attached homes.

 

11% of the transactions were for cash, compared to 15% last month. While buyers negotiated sales prices on average by 1 - 2% (off original price), 54% of San Marcos home buyers paid full price or more for their new homes, a good indicator of competition and multiple offers! The median sales price of detached homes was $677,000 (up 2%) and $422,500 (down 12%) for attached homes/condos/town homes.

 

There were 14 San Marcos homes for sale at the end of May with a Contingent status, versus 6 last month. 1 is a short sale, and 1 is subject to court approval; the other 12 are first right of refusals. These homes are included in the overall Active statistics.

The San Marcos real estate market inventory increased by 4% from April to 217 listings. This represents an inventory of 2.2 months for attached homes (down from 2.4 months last month) and 1.8 months for detached single family homes (down from 2 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, based on the buyer demand and current inventory.

 

In May 2019 we saw 149 homes come on the market, 24% fewer than last month. Similarly the number of homes going pending in May also decreased modestly, by 5%, to108 pendings (excluding homes that sold last month).

 

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 May. 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.

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS - It certainly appears that the San Marcos area is a very hot market right now.  It sits just enough away from the ocean to create extra value for buyers.  It is a short drive to the beach to enjoy all that area has to offer.  Beach weather helps to moderate the temps as you move inland to San Marcos.

Hi Sheri Sperry - MCNE® 

And it has been since the downturn...things have really shifted. And you are so right - not far from the beaches, with moderate weather overall especially on the western edge. And pricing is quite a bit better than in Carlsbad right next door!

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS, being close to the beach is a plus, lower prices better than Carlsbad is great news for the buyers.
