Last year, 16 distressed homes were on the market, slightly more than today.
     
  • There were 1,432 closed residential resales in January, 3% more than January 2023’s 1,390 closed sales. January marked a 2% increase compared to December 2023. The sales-to-list price ratio was 98.6% for all of San Diego County. Foreclosures accounted for just 0.2% of all closed sales, and short sales accounted for 0.2%. That means that 99.6% of all sales were good ol’ fashioned sellers with equity.
 
Have a great week.
