More record prices: condominiums lead

Prices of resale homes in San Diego County continued their record run in June, with condominium prices jumping 6 percent in one month, according to housing statistics compiled from the Multiple Listing Service by the Greater San Diego Association of Realtors® (SDAR).

Condominiums and townhomes (all attached properties) leaped to a median price of $415,000 in June, nearly 6 percent higher than May, and 10 percent higher than June of last year. Single-family homes edged up 1 percent month over month, and are also 10 percent higher than June 2016.

The number of sales of single-family homes in June was unchanged from May, and was down 3 percent from June of last year. Condos and townhome sales were down 14 percent over the past month, and were 9 percent lower than June 2016. For the first six months of 2017, sales of existing homes are slower by 2 percent compared to the same period last year.

In June, single-family homes were selling in an average of only 28 days, while condos and townhomes closed an average of 20 days from the point that they went on the market.

“These statistics point to the gravity of the housing shortage in San Diego and California,” said SDAR President Bob Kevane. “This isn’t a crisis that occurred overnight, and it will take some bold changes to Prop 13 to keep us from becoming a renter-majority state.”
