Overall sales volume in April declined slightly. There were fewer single family home sales, but 3 more condo, townhome and duplex sales. The average sales price was higher for single family homes, and for condos, townhomes, and duplexes. Sales prices ranged from $159,000 to $2,800,000.

The average time on the market was several days longer for single family homes. On the other hand, marketing time was substantially shorter for condos, townhomes and duplexes. 3 out of 4 homes went pending in 1 week or less. As a result buyers should be prepared to make quick decisions.

Some buyers were able to negotiate their sales prices. However, most (82%) paid over asking price! The median sales price of single family homes was $1,142,500 (up 4%). The median was $740,000 (up 16%)for condos, townhomes and duplexes.

The April housing inventory increased substantially, with 61 homes for sale (up 53%), and good news for buyers. List prices range from $499,900 to $4,499,999. There is a supply of only 10 days for condos, townhomes and duplexes, the same as last month. The inventory is 26 days for single family homes, up from 16 days in March. These are based on the rate of sales over the last 3 months.

Hence, San Marcos continues to be a very strong seller’s market based on current supply and demand.

We saw significantly more new listings in April, 103 (up 21%), which was good news for buyers. The number of homes going pending remained about the same at 82 (up by 1), excluding those homes that closed.
