We have been having a surge in the market – the total pendings count went up a net 11% this week! The new-listings count slowed down too – see below (it was almost tied last week).
The inventory change was almost all on the low-end. There are 14 fewer active listings today, and 15 more pendings. In the area between La Jolla and Carlsbad, there are roughly 300,000 people, and today we only have 68 houses for sale listed under $1,000,000 – and NO houses under $665,000.

The 2019 total-listings count fell behind lately, which means potential sellers are in no rush to get their house on the market. Unless it was painfully obvious to them that the market is under siege (there’s no sign of that), then the list prices are going to hold – or possibly rise in the coming months. Three of the four inventory groups below have substantially higher list-price-per-sf than they did at this time a year ago!

They provide VIP concierge level service in every area of the process of selling your home. My home was marketed so successfully that we received an offer the day after our first and only open house. Thanks to Jim's pricing and negotiating, our house is now the highest sold in our community... more "
