Oceanside Real Estate Market Report for September 2023

When you’re ready to move up to a home that provides you with the extra space and amenities to host your family and friends, you know that to get the maximum sale price within a reasonable timeline, you want to have the right strategy in place.

For most of us, our homes are the largest asset we’ll ever own—so you are right to want to understand this asset and the market you are in. As you consider selling, you deserve the insight and guidance from an expert in your local market. Here are the top things to know about the Oceanside 92057 real estate market right now:

Inventory Is Down and There is Still Demand, Even in This Market

With the inherently limited number of properties and consistently high demand, Oceanside regularly sees a boost in sale prices. In 2022, fewer homes were listed than in years past—continuing to push sale prices even higher. In 2023, we see even fewer homes coming to market with an average of 20 new listings a month. To capitalize on your investment, you want to work with a real estate expert who understands how to strategically price and market your home so you get maximum return.

Median Sale Price is Still on the Rise

When correctly priced and positioned well on the market, homes are selling at or above list price—often in only a few days on market. Median sale prices have stabilized recently with buyers focusing on the lowest price homes in the area. Median days on market remained relatively low as well, at 21 with average days on market at 59. Again higher-priced homes are averaging longer on market than lower-priced homes. These stats really add up when you are selling your largest financial asset–and that’s exactly why you deserve a strategic marketing plan.

We Continue to See Homes Sell With Multiple Offers

The market is still active even with higher interest rates. With the right strategic plan, pricing, and positioning for your property and your goals, we can attract maximum offers and get your home sold for the highest possible price in the fewest days on market.
