Overall sales volume for December decreased significantly from November. There were fewer single family detached home sales, and fewer condo, townhome and duplex sales. The average sales price was higher for single family homes than last month, but was lower for condos, townhomes, and duplexes. Sales prices ranged from $505,000 to $6,150,000.

Average time on the market was longer for single family homes, as it also was for condos, townhomes and duplexes. However, some buyers made quick decisions, with 29% of the homes going pending in 1 week or less.

While a number of buyers negotiated their purchase prices, 48% paid list price or more. The median sales price of single family homes was slightly higher than last month, at $902,000. In contrast the median price of $475,000 for condos, townhomes and duplexes was 17% lower.

At the end of December there were 145 Oceanside homes for sale, versus 208 last month, a substantial decrease! Home prices range from $295,000 to $4,925,000.

As a result, there is a 1.1 month supply of single family homes (down from 1.5 months last month). And there is a 1.8 month supply for condos, townhomes and duplexes (down from 2 months last month). This is based on the rate of sales for the last 3 months. The Oceanside market continues to be a very strong seller’s market.

59 Oceanside homes were listed for sale in December, down from 108 last month. On the other hand the number of Oceanside homes going pending increased from 69 in November to 101 (excluding homes that closed in December).
