What’s the Value of my San Marcos Home?

San Marcos Home Sales for October 2019


San Elijo Hills Village CenterThe San Marcos real estate market continues to shift. These data do not include private sales or manufactured housing; the data are derived from the MLS and are believed to be accurate at the time this report was published, but are not guaranteed.


Having details about up-to-date local market conditions benefits you as a buyer or seller so you can make informed decisions about buying and selling San Marcos homes for sale.

In October 2019 there were 113 homes sold in San Marcos’ 2 zip codes (92069 and 92078), a substantial 28% increase from last month. Here’s the breakdown of overall activity.


Detached Homes Sold
73 (up 28%), 34 Days on Market, Average Sales Price $717,094 (down 6%), Average sale 97% of original asking price

Attached Homes (condos, town homes) Sold
40 (up 29%), 31 Days on Market, Average Sales Price $443,997 (up 6%), Average sale 98% of original asking price


Overall sales volume in October increased substantially compared to last month, and for both detached and attached home sales. The average sales price dropped for detached single family homes but increased for attached homes. The average time on the market rose by several days for both detached and attached homes but remains around 1 month.


13% of the transactions were for cash, versus 17% last month. While buyers negotiated sales prices on average by 2 - 4% off original price, 38% 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 $650,000 (down 7%) and $464,750 (up 27%) for attached homes/condos/townhomes.


There were 5 San Marcos homes for sale at the end of October with a Contingent status, versus 10 last month. All 8 are first right of refusals. These homes are included in the overall Active statistics.                                                                                                                                                                                        


The San Marcos real estate market inventory decreased, again, by 15% from September to 210 listings, the 3rd consecutive decline in inventory. This represents an inventory of only 1.3 months for attached homes (down from 1.5 months last month) and 1.7 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.


Townhomes in San Marcos


In October 2019 we saw 102 homes come on the market, 24% fewer than last month. The number of homes going pending in October also decreased, modestly by 5%, to 84 pendings (excluding homes that sold in October).


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 October. 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 ,

As you have stated, San Marcos is a strong seller's market.  I think it is in a sweet spot.  It is not far from the beach communities that are generally in the 7 figure range.
