The short answer seems to be YES! As crazy as it sounds, prices keep on rising in many communities throughout San Diego, which is creating an urgency in buyers to secure their dream home or risk paying more for that same house a few months down the road.
To add to that, we have a good portion of sellers who are also buyers… sellers who want to upgrade or downsize. This adds another layer of buyers to the market and reduces the amount of inventory. Now this is all speculation and what we are seeing first hand, however here are some stats to back this up:
We have seen Closed Sales decease 15.8%, and the Average Sales Price for detached homes increase 2.4% to $687,775, yet our inventory level has still decreased 11.9 %. So what does that tell us…? Well not much until you see this stat, our average days on market decreased 11.2%. What does this mean for us… too many buyers, not enough homes!

"I have worked with Joseph for nearly four years, both with him doing property management as well as sales of property. I have always felt I could rely on his judgement and abilities. I've used a few property managers over the years and far and away Joseph has been the best one that I've worked with. He has done an outstanding job in dealing with tenants to both meet their expectations and not allow them to become unreasonable.
Recently, he helped me in the sale of a condo that included getting renovation work done before the sale. Joseph listened to what I wanted to have done and provided useful advice and coordination of the tasks. We had a successful sale that came in at full asking price and within only a few days of listing. I could not have possibly done that without Joseph's efforts. He went beyond what most agents and managers would be willing to do.
He continues to manage some of my other properties and I will be using him again for future sales. He is someone I can count on and that is hard to find."
