Thoughts regarding San Diego’s detached and attached sales + pricing mix:

1.  Elective sellers plan around the seasons.

2.  Bank-involved sales aren’t as seasonal, and appear to be well-managed.

3.  This wasn’t the year of the short sale. 

There were only 5% more short sales completed during the first 10 months of 2011, than in the same period of 2010.  Next year might get a boost from the threat of the debt-relief tax exemption expiring at the end of 2012, but sellers sure are nonchalant about selling/giving up the free-rent program.

 4.  Generally, the county-wide pricing is on a very slow descent, and mostly flat this year.
