Encinitas Home Sales in March 2024


Moonlight Beach in Encinitas, CAIt’s essential that Encinitas sellers and buyers have current information about local market conditions, and the impact they have on buying and selling, so they can make informed decisions about Encinitas homes for sale.


Here’s what happened in the March 2024 housing market in Encinitas, based on information from the MLS (private sales are not included nor are manufactured, mobile, or multi-family homes). These statistics are believed reliable when this report was written but are not guaranteed.

Looking back 1 year fewer single family homes sold in March 2024 (20) than in 2023 (22). The same number of condos, townhomes and duplexes sold in March 2024 as compared to 1 year ago.


The average sales price for condos, townhomes and duplexes was lower than last month, but was substantially higher for single family homes. March sales prices ranged from $520,000 to $10,000,000.


Compared to March 2023, the average sales price was 11% lower for single family homes sold in 2024 (the median was 15% lower in 2024). In contrast, the average sales price for condos, townhomes and duplexes in March 2024 was 15% higher than 1 year ago, while the 2024 median was 8% higher than in 2023.


The average time on the market was longer for single family homes, and for condos, townhomes and duplexes than in February. 41% of the homes went pending in 7 days or less. That said, it’s important for buyers to be ready to make quick decisions about seeing homes and submitting their offers!

The median sales price for detached single family homes was $2,187,000 (up 3% from last month). The median price for condos, townhomes and duplexes was $1,025,000, up 15% from February.


While some buyers were able to negotiate their purchase prices down from list price, the majority (62%) paid asking price or higher. This is important to remember when planning your offer strategy.


There were 2 homes with an Active Under Contract status at the end of March, compared to 1 last month.


The inventory declined from last month, down 10% from February, with 60 listings at the end of March.  List prices range from $550,000 to $11,850,000.  This is a 1.1 month supply for condos, townhomes and duplexes (down from 1.8 months last month), and 2.5 months for single family homes (down from 2.9 months from last month). This is based on the current supply and the rate of sales over the last 3 months.


Encinitas remains a very strong sellers’ market based on supply and demand especially for condos, townhomes and duplexes.


41 Encinitas homes were listed in March, compared to 44 new listings last month. The number of homes going pending in March (excluding homes that closed) increased, with 27 pendings (up from 21 in February).

The only thing that's increasing around here is appreciation, but there's very little inventory.

Hi Patricia Kennedy 

Inventory, even when it rises, disappears pretty quickly.

Have a terrific weekend!

I never seem to stay in Encinitas, but I am near there every so often, haha.  Next week, I will be in Laguna Beach!

Perhaps a stay in Encinitas is in your future, or at least check out Moonlight Beach and the downtown area. And the meditation gardens at the Self-Realization Fellowship at the far south end of town are pretty cool to visit. 

You'll enjoy Laguna Beach!

Moonlight Beach certainly sounds intriguing Jeff Dowler, CRS

Right now I believe they are in the middle of a big sand replenishment project at Moonlight so areas may be closed Brian England

Good afternoon Jeff,

Your reports always seem to accentuate the same..low inventory and always disappears quickly! The median price never ceases to amaze me.

The trends continue, Dorie Dillard Austin TX  with low inventory, fairly quick sales, and many homes selling at asking or better. It's tough for buyers!
