What's the Value of My La Jolla Home?

La Jolla Homes Sales for March 2024


La Jolla Cove in La Jolla CALa Jolla is one of the more expensive real estate markets in San Diego County on average. If you tour La Jolla online (see link below), or visit in person, you’ll see why this is so.


As a seller or buyer in La Jolla, having current local market information about La Jolla homes for sale benefits you when you need to make informed decisions about buying and/or selling your La Jolla home.


La Jolla is an attractive coastal community with many homes offering beautiful views of the ocean from the hills or shoreline. There is an up-scale village offering top-notch shopping, dining, and services. La Jolla has sometimes been compared to the French and Italian Rivieras due to the wonderful ocean and coastline vistas, spectacular homes, and an appealing year-round climate, which attract visitors from around the world.



La Jolla Real Estate – A Jewel on the San Diego Coastline


42 homes sold in La Jolla in March, 3 fewer sales than last month. Here’s a summary of the housing activity (the MLS data do not include private sales and are believed to be accurate at the time this report was compiled but are not guaranteed).


Single Family Homes Sold
22 (down by 1); 20 Average Days on Market; The Average Sales Price was $3,069,806 (down 59%); the average sales price was 99% of original asking price.

Condos, Townhomes & Duplexes Sold

23 of the transactions (55%) were cash buyers.


Average time on the market decreased for single family homes, as it also did for condos, townhomes and duplexes. Some buyers made quick decisions, with 37% of the homes going pending in 7 days or less. As a result, La Jolla buyers should be prepared to decide quickly about touring homes and submitting offers.


The average sales price for single family homes decreased significantly from last month, no doubt due, in part, to 1 sale at $21,225,000 last month that raised the February average. The average sales price for condos, townhomes and duplexes was higher than last month.
