Here is a summary of the Rancho Santa Fe housing market for July 2020 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.


  •         There were 27 sales of detached homes for July, 35% more than last month. In contrast there were no attached (condos, town homes) home sales in July compared to 4 last month. 52% of the transactions were for cash.
  •         The average sales price of the detached homes was $3,256,646, up 6% from the average sales price last month, and no doubt impacted by the sale of 6 homes over $4M with 1 selling at $12M that raised the average compared to last month. The median sales price for detached homes was $2,800,000 (1% lower).
  •         Average marketing time for the detached homes was 96 days compared to 86 days last month.
  •         The detached homes sold, on average, for 91% of the original asking price with several well below asking price – 1 detached home sold for original asking price.
  •         As of the end of July there were 2 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 0 for the last 4 months. Both are first right of refusals.

At the end of July 2020 there were 166 Rancho Santa Fe homes for sale (96% of these are detached single family homes), ranging in price from $899,000 to $29,995,000, 10% fewer than in June. This represents inventory of 4.5 months for attached homes (up from 2 months in June) and 8.3 months for detached homes at the current rate of sales (based on a 6-month period), down from 12.3 months last month.


The high end market continues to shift in Rancho Santa Fe, and is a market that favors buyers for detached single family homes, luxury properties and estates as it has for quite some time, but is a sellers’ market for attached properties with only 6 available listings.

In contrast the number of homes going pending in July, 44 (excluding those that closed escrow), increased significantly from last month’s 33 pendings.
