Hi, I’m Michael Gaddis your San Marcus real estate expert. Today I’d like to give you a market analysis our current market conditions report for San Marcos as a January 17 2014. I pulled all the active contingent, pending, and sold listings off the market with the sold listings range from December 1st to January 17 so all the data that i’m gonna be telling you about was pulled using those criteria. Currently there are 104 active listings on the market and San Marcos the average listing on the market is for 2,646 square feet the average list price currently for the active listings $720,000 the average list price per square foot is 271 dollars, and the average days on market is sixty so sixty days on market: so far average on right now the t days on market: probably a little bit more extended than usual. We just went through the holidays in the winter time in wintertime is traditionally a slower time so it’s not an unusual number.
Currently there are 22 contingent listings in San Marcos. Contingent listings are usually referred a short sales. Contingent means there some sort of approval is required whether it be lender approval but most the time its it is a lender approval so with these numbers refer typically to short sales so as far as the contingent listings are concerned the average contingent listing square footages 2,382 square feet and the average list price for these as $484,601. The average list price per square foot is 211 dollars 41 cents and the average days on market is a hundred and fifty seven days now the thing you’ll notice is there’s a big difference between the list price per square foot for the active listings and for the contingent listings and contingent listings are short sales again so usually they’re sold are listed at a lower price than traditional or equity sales for many reasons but in general that average list price per square foot in the contignet listings doesn’t necessarily reflect what is actually gonna sell for. It doesn’t mean that once it’s approved the bank won’t come back and counter or that will eventually raise what’s called the sole price per square foot. So, it’s nothing to panic after that number is significantly lower than the active listings.
I’ll show you as we talk about pending listings now that all why that is there are currently seventy four pending listings in San Marcos real estate on the average square foot in San Marcos is 2500 eighty square feet for a pending listing. The average list price for a pending listing a 604,501 dollars the list price per square foot for a house in San Marcos is 244 dollars per square foot and the average days on market is forty seven days. If you look at that the pending listings our listings that are currently in escrow they’re getting ready to close their in the closing process so 16 intention listing gets approved it loose from contingent depending so, even though the continued listing price per square foot is $211 you’ll notice that the list price per square foot for the pending listings is 244 dollars which is about thirty dollars per square higher than what the contingent listings are.
That brings us to the sold listings which holds with the real price per square foot has been amid you know this is the actual number that people have paid and the deals that have gone through. There are currently 75. 75 homes were sold between December 1st and January 17 and the average price per square foot for the price the houses that sold in San Marcos was two thousand 196 per on a square feet the average list price was 536,000 for those listings the average list price per square that was 253 doubt archer fifty three dollars so but that number is not a sir the important numbers important was not the list price per square foot but the sold price per square foot. So the average sold price was $527,000 the average sold price per square foot …. drum roll, two hundred fifty dollars per square foot so its more consistent with the current that two hundred fifty dollars per square foot for the sold listings in January I mean I’m in December and January is very consistent with the up list price per square foot the pending listings and it’s a little lower than the active listings but you can see that the number is significantly higher than where the list price per square foot for the contingent listings are.
Sometimes people like to know what the most expensive house that sold was in during this time frame the most expensive house that sold in San Marcos was at Costa del Sur on and it sold for 989 thousand five hundred dollars. Actually, I’m sorry, that was the list price: the actual sales price for that house was nine hundred and forty four thousand so the list price was nine $89,500 the sold price 944 nah closed on December 31st up 2013 so on that was the most expensive home that sold during the time period that I pull so again this is Michael Gaddis I am your local San Marcos real estate expert if you have any more questions or comments or would like to contact me in any way you can call me at area code 760 692 5950 760 692 5950 you can visit me on my website at www Michael Gaddis dot com or you can on just stop by my office my office and not too far I’m in Carlsbad of a brushy ranch towers a pressie ranch I am 6104 innovation way and you can just stop by and say hello or ask me whatever question you’d like so again thank you for taking the time to listen to the San Marcos real state a market update and I look forward to seeing you and meeting in the future thank you.
