Home prices jump in Scripps Ranch

Sales of existing homes slumped in November as the buying season cooled in San Diego overall, according to housing statistics compiled from the Multiple Listing Service by the Greater San Diego Association of Realtors®.

Single-family home sales last month in San Diego County were down by 15 percent compared to October, and by just over 14 percent from November 2016. Condominium and townhome sales in November were down 19 percent from the previous month, and 18 percent from a year ago. As 2017 winds down, sales of existing homes are off by 3 percent compared to 2016.

Prices continue to rise, with the median price of single-family homes exceeding $625,000 in November, a nearly 3 percent increase from October. The median price of attached properties (condos and townhomes) was $407,500, a slight increase from the previous month. Collectively,

residential resale prices are up 12 percent since November 2016. Resale properties are closing escrow in an average of 30 days.

“While we don’t expect a quick fix to our housing affordability and availability crises, we are more immediately concerned that the tax reform proposals moving through Washington may have a negative effect on home ownership,” said SDAR President Bob Kevane. “SDAR and its state and national Realtor® associations are advocating to maintain the current law for mortgage interest deductions and capital gains exclusions.”

The most expensive residential property sold in San Diego County in November was a gated estate in La Jolla Shores with a sweeping ocean view – 9,900 square feet, 8 bedrooms, 9 baths – built in 1999. The sale price was $7.83 million.

SDAR’s housing statistics are compiled monthly from the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).

NOTE: The median home price is the price in which half of the homes sold for more, and half sold for less. It is a more typical price measure than average price, which can be skewed high by a relative handful of million-dollar-plus transactions.
