Selling a Home in San Diego: What the Real Estate Market Looks Like for San Diego Homeowners

In San Diego County, median home prices have hit a new peak. We know that when summer rolls around, the weather isn’t the only thing that heats up in San Diego. The real estate market is following past years’ trend! The market is a hot seller’s market in San Diego County and the median price for homes was $530,000 in the month of May, surpassing the previous spike of $517,500 in 2005. San Diego (specifically the Carlsbad region) also made the NATION’s list for lowest inventory with a recorded inventory of 1.64 months. In May, there were only 5,060 homes listed….in all of San Diego County. While that may sound like a lot of homes, it really is not. All of this data may not make for the most intriguing of blog posts, but if you’re a homeowner in San Diego – it should.

What do these numbers mean to you?

Ultimately, home values are as high as they have been pre-market drop and inventory is super low (meaning a lot of bidding wars and increased buyer demand). As a homeowner who may be considering selling, this is great because it means that you will get more for your house, and hopefully not have to wait as long for offers. Generally speaking, it is the perfect time to sell.

But, what if my house needs a lot of work?

Luckily for you, even if your home is in disrepair, the high market will support a price for your home that you couldn’t have gotten a few years ago. While a traditional buyer may still be turned off by a home that needs work and is not turn-key, you have a pool of cash buyers and investors who can purchase your home no matter what kinds of repairs are needed.

How quickly can I sell in a seller’s market?

Well, this completely depends upon the route you choose to take in selling. When selling with a real estate agent, your chances of receiving offers quickly still depends on where your home is located and the condition it is in. A “hot market” doesn’t give you a “wild card” or free pass that allows you to sell your home without any delays. As with any real estate transaction, there will always be levels of uncertainty and unexpected delays. So, with a traditional sale, you can expect a quicker sale than in past years…but that could still means months of waiting. This is contingent upon your buyer not having financing issues, not running into issues during inspection, and also depends on whether you have priced your home appropriately. Some of the homes we have listed have received multiple offers within the first few days, others have been patiently waiting for a buyer for over two months (this is always the risk you take).
