Stabilizing September

The housing market may have cooled but the San Diego Association of Realtors says sales are up 9% compared to last year in San Diego. The latest data shows home prices are continuing to appreciate, just at a slower, decelerated pace. But that doesn’t mean they’re depreciating.
Experts believe we are not in a housing recession, rather the market is stabilizing. Meaning, homes with fantastic views are staying on the market 30 to 45 days which was typical pre-pandemic.

Existing single-family home purchases were down 22% in July compared to June, according to the Greater San Diego Association of Realtors (GSDAR). Prices dipped in July, which is a continuation of a trend that started earlier in 2022.

The median price of single-family homes in San Diego County was $969,000 in July, which is down one percentage point from June, the GSDAR said.

So... What does this mean for homebuyers? The buying frenzy from the last two years is cooling off, which means more options for homebuyers and less competition. It also means buyers have more negotiation power and are taking advantage of seller concessions, which can help towards necessary repairs and closing costs.

THE NEWS

What's Actually Happening With Home Prices Today?

One of the biggest questions people are asking right now is: what’s happening with home prices? There are headlines about ongoing price appreciation, but at the same time, some sellers are reducing the price of their homes. That can feel confusing and makes it more difficult to get a clear picture.

Part of the challenge is that it can be hard to understand what experts are saying when the words they use sound similar. Let’s break down the differences among those terms to help clarify what’s actually happening today.

  • Appreciation is when home prices increase.

  • Depreciation is when home prices decrease.

  • Deceleration is when home prices continue to appreciate, but at a slower or more moderate pace.
