Here is a summary of the Rancho Santa Fe housing market for December 2019 based on information from the MLS (private sales are not included). These data are deemed reliable at the time this report was written but are not guaranteed.


  •         Sales of detached homes for December dropped significantly from last month, from 29 to 18. There was 1 attached (condos, town homes) home sale in December, the same as last month. 47% of the transactions were for cash.
  •         The average sales price of the detached homes was $2,430,916, down 22% from the average sales price last month. The attached home sold at $826,540. The median sales price for detached homes was $2,365,000 (down 1%).

  •         The detached homes sold, on average, for 91% of the original asking price – all but 1 home sold for less than original asking price.
  •         As of the end of December there were 4 homes in the Rancho Santa Fe real estate market with a Contingent status (i.e., typically these are short sale and REO homes that have offers being reviewed by the lenders) versus 3 last month. These are all first right of refusals.


As of the end of December 2019 there were 223 Rancho Santa Fe homes for sale (94% of these are detached single family homes), down 25% from November and the 4th decline. This represents an inventory of 7.5 months for attached homes (down from 9.8 months last month) and 7.1 months for detached homes at the current rate of sales (based on a 6-month period), down from 8.6 months last month.
