2018 Annual Report on the North San Diego County Housing Market

Table of Contents

While the 2017 housing market was marked by renewed

optimism fueled by stock market strength, higher wages and a

competitive environment for home sales, 2018 delivered a

more seasoned prudence toward residential real estate. Home

buyers, now steeped in several years of rising prices and low

inventory, became more selective in their purchase choices as

housing affordability achieved a ten-year low.

Yet the appetite for home buying remained strong enough to

drive prices upward in virtually all markets across the country.

In fact, national home prices have risen 53 percent from

February 2012 to September 2018. That mark is a less

dramatic but still sizable 40 percent increase when inflation is

factored in.

The national median household income was last reported with

a year-over-year increase of 1.8 percent, while home prices

have gone up 5.5 percent in roughly the same amount of time.

That kind of gap can't be sustained indefinitely, but prices are

still expected to rise in most areas, albeit at a much slower

pace.

Sales: Pending sales decreased 11.0 percent, closing 2018 at

13,707. Closed sales were down 12.3 percent to finish the year

at 13,636. A booming economy would seem to indicate more

sales, but fewer homes to choose from coupled with lower

affordability made it tougher for buyers in 2018.

Listings: Year-over-year, the number of homes available for

sale was higher by 38.6 percent. There were 2,512 active

listings at the end of 2018. New listings increased by 5.0

percent to finish the year at 21,195.

Distressed: The foreclosure market continues to be a hint of

its former unhealthy peaks. In 2018, the percentage of closed

sales that were either foreclosure or short sale decreased by

13.3 percent to end the year at 6.5 percent of the market.

Prices: Home prices were up compared to last year. The

overall median sales price increased 6.7 percent to $640,000 for

the year. Single-Family Detached home prices were up 6.8

percent compared to last year, and Single-Family Attached

home prices were up 5.8 percent.

List Price Received: Sellers received, on average, 97.3

percent of their original list price at sale, a year-over-year

reduction of 0.4 percent. If demand shrinks in 2019, original list

price received at sale could drop as well.

Consumer optimism has been tested by four interest rate hikes

by the Federal Reserve in 2018. Meanwhile, GDP growth was at

4.2 percent in Q2 2018, dropped to 3.4 percent in Q3 2018 and

is expected to be about 2.9 percent in Q4 2018 when figures are

released.

Looking strictly at market fundamentals, recent Fed and GDP

changes will not cause a dramatic shift away from the current

state of the housing market. The booming sales at increased

prices over the last several years may not be the same thrill ride

to observe in 2019, but a long-awaited increase in inventory is

something positive to consider, even if it arrives in the form of

shrinking demand amidst rising mortgage rates.

The biggest potential problem for residential real estate in 2019

might be human psychology. A fear of buying at the height of

the market could create home purchase delays by a large pool

of potential first-time buyers, thus creating an environment of

declining sales.

If the truth of a positive economic outlook coupled with

responsible lending practices and more available homes for sale

captures the collective American psyche, the most likely

outcome for 2019 is market balance.
