 In Market Update

Going into March of 2018, Downtown San Diego’s real estate market is taking off with lots of new listings. This is partially due to the development of luxury condos like Savina and Pacific Gate. Real estate downtown is becoming more and more attractive with the downtown lifestyle, the multitude of restaurants, things to do, and other exciting attractions. If you are interested in making Downtown San Diego your home, or perhaps are interested in selling your Downtown San Diego condo, read on to find out what the latest real estate market update is like.

Single Family Homes in Downtown San Diego

Although Downtown San Diego is filled with mainly apartments and condos, there are still a few single-family homes that exist. According to the SDAR report for February, the median housing price for single-family homes has gone up significantly since last year.

The current inventory of homes for sale is 2 which is down 33.3% from last year.

If you are selling your home in Downtown San Diego, now is the prime market to be selling in.

Townhouses and Condos in Downtown San Diego

Now, for what makes up most of Downtown San Diego’s real estate: condos and townhouses. Downtown San Diego is quickly developing new luxury condo buildings in prime locations and filled with amazing amenities. In addition, there are also lots of other brand new condo buildings being built in Little Italy and in East Village that are more affordable options.

Currently, the median sales price for condos and townhouses in Downtown San Diego is $460,000, down 8% from last year. In addition, the current inventory of homes for sale is up 36.6% from last year at 261 total. The days on the market are the same as last year coming in at an average of 34 days.

The housing market for condos and townhouses in Downtown is currently great for both buyers and sellers. If you are looking to buy a condo downtown, the market is good for you because the median price is down since last year and inventory is up. This means it’s not going to be as competitive as other areas in San Diego. The higher amount of inventory will give you more options to explore during your Downtown San Diego condo search. It’s also still an ideal market for sellers because although the median sales price is down, it’s still a hot market. The average number of days your home will be on the market will be 34 days, which is much shorter than other areas of San Diego.
