San Marcos Market Report for February 2022


San Elijo Hills town center in San Marcos CAThe San Marcos real estate market continues to change each month. These data do not include private sales, mobile homes or multi-family housing (the data are taken from the MLS and are believed to be accurate at the time this report was published, but are not guaranteed).


Having current information about 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, especially in this competitive market.

In February 2022 there were 76 homes sold in San Marcos’ 2 zip codes (92069 and 92078), 9% more home sales than last month. Here’s the breakdown of overall activity.


Single Family Homes Sold
40 (down 18%); 9 Average Days on Market; Average Sales Price $1,109,748 (up 1%); Average sale 109% of original asking price

Condos, Townhomes and Duplexes Sold

36 (up by 71%); 10 Average Days on Market; Average Sales Price $606,986 (up 1%); Average sale 105% of original asking price


Overall sales volume in February rose, with a decrease in single family home sales but substantially  more condo, townhome and duplex sales. The average sales price rose slightly for single family homes, and for condos, townhomes, and duplexes. Sales prices ranged from $246,000 to $2,400,000.


The average time on the market (DOM) was shorter for single family homes, as well as for condos, townhomes and duplexes, and under 2 weeks! Buyers should be prepared to make quick decisions about touring homes they like, and then making offers, since well over half of the homes (67%) went pending in 1 week or less.


A few buyers negotiated their sales prices down from list price, however, the vast majority (92%) paid asking price or more! The median sales price of single family homes was $930,000 (up 7%), and $647,500 (no change) for condos, townhomes and duplexes.

This represents a supply of 19 days for condos, townhomes and duplexes (vs. 17 days last month), and 13 days for single family homes, up from 10 days in January, based on the rate of sales over the last 3 months.


Based on supply and demand, San Marcos continues to be a very strong seller’s market.


In February 2022 we saw about the same number of new listings, 85, as we did last month (86) which was good news. The number of homes going pending dropped slightly, from 71 last month to 69 (excluding homes that closed). It was another busy month for buyers and sellers.

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS - I noticed a slight increase in inventory for the San Marcos market but as you know, it is going to take a lot more inventory to benefit the buyers and move the needle.  Fortunately, clients can depend on your negotiating expertise to make a difference.

Hi Sheri Sperry - MCNE® 

Yes it's nice to see any increase in inventory, but with the demand new listings disappear pretty fast. I have a couple of clients looking in San Marcos and it's a challenge.
