Average time on the market decreased for condos, townhomes and duplexes but was longer for single family homes. Furthermore, a number of buyers made prompt decisions, with 40% of the homes going pending in 7 days or less.

Plenty of home buyers successfully negotiated their purchase prices, however, well over half (65%) paid list price or higher. The median sales price of single family homes was $880,000, about the same as last month. The median price for condos, townhomes and duplexes was $555,000, which was 10% lower than in September.

At the end of October there were 206 Oceanside homes for sale, compared to 190 last month, an improvement by 8%! Home prices range from $295,000 to $5,885,000.

As a result, there is a 1.5 month supply of single family homes (up from 1.2 months last month) and a 1.6 month supply for condos, townhomes and duplexes (down from 1.8 months last month), based on the rate of sales over the last 3 months. The Oceanside market continues to be a very strong seller’s market based on supply and demand.
