What’s my Escondido Home Worth?

Escondido Real Estate Market in August 2021


California Center for the Arts in Escondido CAEscondido is an inland community in North San Diego County, approximately 20 miles from the beaches, and just east of San Marcos.


It’s important for buyers and sellers in the Escondido housing market to understand recent trends and current local market conditions in order to make informed decisions about buying and selling Escondido homes for sale.



A Tour of Escondido – A Diverse Inland San Diego Community


The following data are taken from the MLS (private sales are not included in these statistics, nor are multifamily properties, or mobile and manufactured homes). The data are believed to be reliable at the time this report was written but are not guaranteed.


A total of 224 homes sold in August, the same as last month. Here’s the breakdown of activity:


Single Family Homes Sold
175 (down by 6); 17 Average Days on Market; Average Sales Price $901,294 (up 4%); Average Sales Price was 102% of original asking price

Condos, Townhomes & Duplexes Sold
49 (up by 6); 8 Average Days on Market; Average Sales Price $431,152 (up 3%); Average sales price was 103% of original asking price


Overall home sales in August were the same as last month, with a modest decline in single family sales sold but more condo, townhome and duplex sales. The average sales price rose modestly for single family homes, as well as for condos, townhomes and duplexes compared to last month. Days on market decreased across the board. Sales prices ranged from $210,000 to $3,252,000.


Some buyers were able to negotiate their purchase price down from the original asking price, but the majority of home buyers (77%) paid list price or higher for their new homes, a good indicator of buyer competition.


Plenty of buyers made quick decisions about seeing homes and then making their offers, with 50% going pending in 1 week or less, about the same as in July!


Escondido condos in downtown


The MEDIAN sales price of the single family homes sold was $805,190 (1% higher), and $405,000 (up 8%) for condos, townhomes and duplexes compared to last month.


There were 12 Escondido homes on the market with an Active Under Contract status compared to 19 last month. These are included in the statistics below.


At the end of August there were 170 homes for sale in Escondido, a 5% decline from last month following 2 months of inventory increases! Home prices range from $245,000 to $2,859,000. This represents an inventory of 16 days for condos, townhomes and duplexes (down from 26 days in July), and 23 days for single family detached homes (no change from last month), based on the current rate of sales over the last 3 months. Escondido continues to be a very strong seller’s market.


194 homes came on the market in August, a substantial drop by 20% from last month, but still an average of 6 new listings every day. The number of homes going pending, however, increased modestly in August (excluding those homes that sold that month) to 188, up 3%. It was still an active month of buying and selling in Escondido!

Hi Wayne Martin 

Well, I have seen mixed reports on the exodus so who knows the truth, but there are plenty of people buying, and who want to. And plenty can and do pay over asking for the privelege of owning as you say.

Enjoy your weekend!

Great, comprehensive market update for Escondido Jeff Dowler, CRS. With increasing home prices, clearly, high demand from home buyers is both great indications the real estate market is hot. Whether buying or selling a home in Escondido, you are the REALTOR® to call.
