Having up-to-date information on the local housing market conditions in Del Mar is essential in order for buyers and sellers to make informed decisions about Del Mar homes for sale.

Keep in mind that with any statistic 1 month of data does not establish a trend. A more accurate picture emerges when you watch the Del Mar real estate market over time, especially since market conditions shift monthly. One cannot draw firm conclusions regarding pricing because of sales price extremes of Del Mar properties, especially at the higher price points, plus the limited number of sales.

With that information we’ll create a strategy to buy your new Del Mar home.
