San Diego Real Estate Market Update February 2024 + Local Events
February 1st, 2024

The month of February is special for us! We met 21 years ago at a house in Point Loma on Santa Barbara Street that Layne was holding open. We are so thankful that we met at that open house as we have been married for 16 years and have 2 amazing kids Grace (13) and Vaun (11). We have been working in real estate together for 13 years and Layne has been in the business for 23 years. We make a great team. The balance of opposites! 

The San Diego real estate market is in strong demand from local buyers, out of state buyers, and investors. The limited amount of homes for sale has created a competitive and fast paced environment in the coastal neighborhoods. The combination of the high demand for homes and the lack of inventory has sustained price appreciation. Mortgage interest rates for a 30 year fixed are currently averaging 6.75%. Many real estate experts predict that mortgage interest rates will be going down throughout the year. Many real estate experts also predict that home prices will increase throughout the year.

San Diego Real Estate Market Update December 2023 + Local Events

With the attention on the holiday season, the month of December is generally a slow time in the real estate market. However, mortgage interest rates just dropped to the lowest levels since May. This is one of the biggest single day drops on record. The mortgage interest rate for a 30 year fixed is now in the high 6 percent range which is drastically lower than the recent 8 percent rates. This is going to benefit buyers and sellers.

Buyers who stay focused on their home search during the holiday season can take advantage of the lower rates and find opportunity as there are always sellers with a need or a desire to sell before the end of the year. Inventory remains low and updated homes that are priced correctly continue to sell quickly. If you are considering selling, let us show you how we can make you more money selling your home using our Compass Concierge Program.
