The average sales price was slightly higher for single family homes, and was modestly higher for condos, townhomes, and duplexes. March sales prices ranged from $320,000 to $5,600,000.

Average marketing time was 2 days shorter for single family homes, and was significantly shorter for condos, townhomes and duplexes. Marketing time remained about 1 month. While plenty of buyers made quick decisions, 37% of the homes went pending in 1 week or less, more than in February.

This is based on the rate of sales over the last 3 months. The Oceanside market remains a very strong seller’s market based on supply and demand.
