Daily Business Report-July 7, 2017

In June, single-family homes were selling in an average of only 28 days, while condos and townhomes closed an average of 20 days from the point that they went on the market.

San Diego Home Sales

Continue Record Run in June

Prices of resale homes continued their record run in June, with condominium prices jumping 6 percent in one month, according to housing statistics compiled from the Multiple Listing Service by the Greater San Diego Association of Realtors.

Condominiums and townhomes (all attached properties) leaped to a median price of $415,000 in June, nearly 6 percent higher than May, and 10 percent higher than June of last year. Single-family homes edged up 1 percent month over month, and are also 10 percent higher than June 2016.

The number of sales of single-family homes in June was unchanged from May, and was down 3 percent from June of last year. Condos and townhome sales were down 14 percent over the past month, and were 9 percent lower than June 2016. For the first six months of 2017, sales of existing homes are slower by 2 percent compared to the same period last year.

In June, single-family homes were selling in an average of only 28 days, while condos and townhomes closed an average of 20 days from the point that they went on the market.

“These statistics point to the gravity of the housing shortage in San Diego and California,” said SDAR President Bob Kevane. “This isn’t a crisis that occurred overnight, and it will take some bold changes to Prop 13 to keep us from becoming a renter-majority state.”

In June, the ZIP codes in San Diego County with the most single-family home sales were:

92028 (Fallbrook) with 86

92126 (Escondido North) with 58

92009 (Carlsbad Southeast) with 58

92056 (Oceanside East) with 56

92064 (Poway) with 56

The most expensive residential property sold in San Diego County last month was an estate with panoramic views in Rancho Santa Fe — 12,500 square feet, 6 bedrooms, and 10 baths — selling for $11 million.

Voice Your Opinion

We Want Your Opinions on San Diego’s Big Issues In the coming months, Probosky Research (one of California’s leading opinion research firms) will continue its partnership with SD METRO to survey San Diego residents about topics of interest to our readers. We’d like to throw open the door for suggestions for topics. What do you want to know? What do you think you know, but aren’t sure? What are you certain you know, but want to prove it beyond doubt? Ideally, we’d like to see questions that have to do with public policy.

Some areas may include Mayor Filner’s first 100 days job performance, should the city be responsible for economic growth and the creation of new jobs, how important are infrastructure improvements to our daily lives (streets and bridges, etc.), how important is water independence, how satisfied are residents with public transit or how do city residents value Balboa Park and other open spaces? Do you believe the City Council should revive the Plaza de Panama plan for Balboa Park?
