The next Case-Shiller reading is coming out tomorrow, and you can bet that the MSM will be screaming double-dip all day. Because the C-S index will be reflecting the Nov-Dec-Jan numbers, it’ll be dated for those who are thinking of moving today.

What is happening in March, 2011?

The month isn’t done yet, but North SD County Coastal is faring pretty well, compared to last March.  Here are the closed sales and average cost-per-sf for March, 2010, compared to those closed so far this year:

Area & Zip Code March, 2010 March, 2011
SE Carlsbad, 92009 58/$269 31/$246
SW Carlsbad, 92011 13/$318 12/$305
Carmel Valley, 92130 32/$326 32/$351
DM/SB, 92014-75 10/$764 14/$641
Encinitas, 92024 28/$360 19/$313
RSF, 92067 9/$491 20/$448
Total Above 150/$349 129/$362

Pricing is down in the individual zip codes, measured by the flimsy “average cost-per-sf” – only Carmel Valley shows an increase.  But sales are fairly healthy – if buyers can just find the right house, at the right price!
