What’s the Value of my Escondido Home?

Escondido Homes Sales for March 2024


California Center for the Arts in Escondido CAEscondido is an inland community, around 20 miles from the beaches, bordering San Marcos and Fallbrook in North San Diego County.


It’s essential that buyers and sellers in the Escondido housing market are well informed about the current local market conditions (Read More: Real Estate Is Local…But HOW Local?) so they can make educated buying and selling decisions about Escondido homes for sale.

The following data are from the MLS (private sales are not included, nor are multifamily properties, or mobile and manufactured homes). The information is believed reliable at the time this market report was written but is not guaranteed.


105 homes sold in March, 3 more than last month. Here’s a summary of the activity.


Single Family Homes Sold
87 (up by 3); 16 Average Days on Market; Average Sales Price $1,019,078 (up 2%); the Average Sales Price was 101% of the original asking price.

Condos, Townhomes & Duplexes Sold
18 (no change); 29 Average Days on Market; Average Sales Price $564,085 (up 3%); the Average sales price was 101% of original asking price.


Overall home sales in March increased slightly from February. There were 3 more single family home sales, but the number of condo, townhome and duplex sales remained the same. The average sales price was slightly higher for single family homes, as it also was for condos, townhomes and duplexes, compared to February.


The marketing time was several days longer for single family homes than last month, and was substantially longer for condos, townhomes and duplexes. Sales prices ranged from $350,000 to $2,058,000.


While some home buyers negotiated their purchase prices, the majority (65%) paid asking price or more for their new homes. Buyer competition continues to affect pricing and sales.


A number of buyers decided quickly about touring homes and making offers. 40% of the homes went pending in 7 days or less.


The median sales price of the detached single family homes was $908,000 (up 2%). The median price was $587,000 for condos, townhomes and duplexes, up 12% compared to February.

We can always count on Endre Barath, Jr. to be a smart ass, but I guess that is better than him being a dumb ass, haha.  I really enjoyed seeing you yesterday!  I so wish I knew of something that would help with your bad back, it's difficult to see you in pain.
