What’s the Value of My Rancho Santa Fe Home?

Rancho Santa Fe Home Sales for December 2021


Rancho Santa Fe Country Club photoBuyers and sellers in the Rancho Santa Fe real estate market should have current information about local market conditions in order to make educated decisions about Rancho Santa Fe homes for sale, whether they are selling, buying, or investing. 


The Rancho Santa Fe housing market is the most expensive community in San Diego County, on average. There are large estates, gated communities, and luxury and equestrian properties on expansive lots often measured in acres. As of this writing there are 17 properties listed for more than $10,000,000, including 1 at $98,500,000!

Here is a summary of the Rancho Santa Fe housing market for December 2021 based on data from the MLS (private sales are not included). These data are considered reliable at the time this report was written but are not guaranteed.


  • There were 16 sales of single family homes in December, 3 more sales than last month. There were no condo sales in December, compared to 3 in November.
  • Sales prices ranged from $2,250,000 to $7,050,000
  • The average sales price of the single family homes was $4,341,875, down 16% from the average sales price last month (no doubt in part due to the sale last month of 9 homes over $5M with 1 at $15,600,000 and 1 at $11,750,000 that raised the November average)
  • The median sales price for single family homes was $3,970,000, up 11%.
  • On average the single family homes sold for 94% of the original asking price. 4 of the homes sold for list price or more.
  • As of the end of December there was 1 home in the Rancho Santa Fe real estate market with an Active Under Contract status, the same as the last 3 months.


At the end of December 2021 there were 45 Rancho Santa Fe homes for sale (all but 2 are single family detached homes), ranging in price from $1,150,000 to $98,500,000, down 22% last month (58). This represents a supply of 2.4 months for single family homes at the current rate of sales (based on a 6-month period), the same as in November.

The high end market has continued to shift in Rancho Santa Fe, and remains a strong sellers’ market for single family homes, luxury properties and estates, and is a very strong seller’s market for condos, townhomes and duplexes, with only 1 listing available as of today.


The number of Rancho Santa Fe homes coming on the market in December dropped from last month, from 16 to 7, another decline but not a surprise given the holidays. Similarly 12 homes went pending, 2 fewer pendings than last month (excluding homes that closed escrow in December).

Geez, I can't even imagine how amazing that home listed for $98 million must be.  It seems like a whole village could be built with that kind of money, haha.

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS - My curiosity got the better of me so I had to check out the $98 + million estate.  With 77 acres of prime San Diego County land for sale, it makes sense why the price tag is so high.  It reminds me a lot of Santa Barbara.  I love this style of home.

That is certainly an area of distinction. One sale a year and sit back and wait for another

No doubt it's an amazing property. My guess it will take a while to find the right buyer.

Thank you Myrl Jeffcoat 

Brian England - Well, given the property has over 70 acres I think there IS room for a village in addition to what is already there.

Hi Sheri Sperry - MCNE® 

It's hard to resist checking out high-end properties, wherever they are.

Hi Ed Silva 

1 or 2 big sales COULD be a windfall for sure. It's become a pretty competitive market at the high end but some homes still take a while to happen.
