Some buyers were able to negotiate their purchase prices, however 3 out of 4 buyers (74%) paid over asking price. This is a good indication of multiple offers and competition.

The median sales price of single family homes dropped 4% from last month at $885,000. On the other hand, the median price for condos, townhomes and duplexes was higher at $582,500 by 3%.

At the end of May there were 209 Oceanside homes for sale, which ranged in price from $333,000 to $6,450,000. This is another significant increase in inventory, by 40%, from last month, which is good news for buyers!

This translates to a 1 month supply of single family homes, and 1 month for condos, townhomes and duplexes. This is based on the rate of sales for the last 3 months. Thus the Oceanside market continues to be a very strong seller’s market when looking at supply and demand.

251 Oceanside homes were listed for sale in May, 8% more than in April. The number of Oceanside homes going pending remained about the same at 142, versus 143 last month (excluding homes that actually closed in May). It was another active month for buying and selling Oceanside homes.
