The average time on the market (DOM) dropped for single family homes. In contrast, marketing time was longer for condos, townhomes and duplexes, but still only about 2 weeks.

Buyers should plan to decide quickly about seeing homes they like, and making offers. Why? Because 75% of the homes went pending in 1 week or less.

Some buyers negotiated their sales prices down. However, the majority (89%) paid asking price or higher! The median sales price of single family homes was $1,100,000 (up 18%). And it was $640,000 for condos, townhomes and duplexes (down 1%).

The San Marcos housing inventory did not shift in March, with 40 homes for sale. List prices range from $162,500 to $3,000,000. As a result, this represents a supply of only 10 days for condos, townhomes and duplexes, and 16 days for single family homes. This is based on the rate of sales over the last 3 months.

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

In March 2022 we saw the same number of new listings, 85, as we did last month. That’s some good news for buyers. The number of homes going pending rose modestly, however, from 79 last month to 83 (excluding homes that closed). It was a busy month for sellers and buyers.
