• November 2022 Update on San Diego Real Estate Trends in Late Fall •

The median home price in San Diego reflects that properties are holding their value, despite a drop in the number of homes sold in November compared to a year ago, according to the Greater San Diego Association of REALTORS® (SDAR). SDAR compiles housing statistics through the San Diego Multiple Listing Service.

As the holiday season commenced, the median price of a single-family home in the county was unchanged month-over-month, while the price of attached properties (condominiums and townhomes) dipped by a modest 2 percent. The price of single-family homes in November stood at
$885,000 and attached properties settled just under $600,000. Prices of sold homes are still 12 percent higher year-to-date than in 2021.

Home sales, on the other hand, saw a dramatic drop of 47 percent last month compared to November of 2021, and cumulatively for the year, sales are down 27 percent. Yet the inventory of homes on the market continues to edge up, with approximately 60 percent more properties on the market in November than a year ago.

“It is common to see a slowdown in real estate activity around the holidays, but it is encouraging that homes in San Diego are holding their value and that inventory has increased over last year,” said SDAR President Chris Anderson. To address our region’s dire housing needs and improve affordability, we must continue to focus on the supply of homes and new construction – at both affordable and market rates,” she added. “Our elected leaders are progressively seeking ways to spur growth and development, and as REALTORS® and community partners, we strive to work with them to create more opportunities for home ownership.”

Home Prices Mainly Unchanged, Sales Dropped 47%
