February 2022 Market Reports – North County Communities

San Marcos Market Report March 2022

Here are the February 2022 Market Reports for 11 North San Diego County communities.

Our housing market in 2022 has continued to be very competitive, with some shifts each month in these communities. Inventory rose somewhat after the holidays, on average, but remains tight, and buyer demand continues to be very strong.

The information in these market reports is taken from the MLS. The data are believed to be accurate when these reports were compiled, but are not guaranteed.

I can best help buyers and sellers make informed selling and buying decisions when I understand the market conditions.

However, these reports are great education for you as well, whether you are planning to buy or to sell now or not. Many people are interested in what’s happening in the housing market even if they are not planning a purchase or sale.

Furthermore, understanding housing market conditions for the areas that interest you will help your decisions when the time comes.

Simply put, local market conditions impact buying and selling because of supply and demand. This affects marketing time, sales prices versus list prices, and of course competition for limited inventory. Over and over we see that real estate truly IS local!! You cannot always believe what you see in media headlines!

Each buyer and seller situation is unique, so I’m happy to share insights on what market trends can mean for your timing, budget, expectations and decision making. This is specific to the market segment of interest – a zip code, a specific neighborhood, size of house, or price range.

February was a fairly busy time for buyers, sellers and their agents, with changes in average prices, inventory, and sales volume from January. However, while we saw some general trends, each community is different!

Please call me at (760-840-1360) to discuss your personal housing needs, budget, and real estate decisions you hope to make. The housing market favors sellers in general, and there are important issues to consider, such as your offer strategy. And if you are selling AND buying, there are particular challenges because of timing, coordinating both transactions, etc.!

Do you need information about the local housing market, or have questions? Let’s talk more about this.

If you plan to buy a home I can guide you through your home search and purchase.

Maybe you are simply interested in the market value of your home. I can help with that, too.

Do you need to get pre-approved for a mortgage? I can share contact information of several lenders I know personally so you can decide. Furthermore, a pre-approval is not only necessary for buying, it helps you understand your purchasing power. In this competitive market you need to know what you can actually afford. Plus sellers will expect you to prove it when you make an offer.
