Time to move this onto the forums for some added visibility and discussions. Ive been tracking this data since the beginning of April when the market was just coming out of a month where the market was frozen in place withe the shelter in place order. Since then the market has come roaring back here.

A few parameters. This data is for detached homes only in Encinitas (92024) and the two S Carlsbad zips (92009 and 92011). I run the data mid afternoon on tuesdays to allow for a day or two of negotiations after the weekend. New listings mostly come on the market between Wed Night and Saturday Morning. New pendings mostly reach agreement between Sunday night and Tuesday Afternoon. I also exclude new homes as its generally a different market.

Im not gonna rehash all the old data but may refer to trends. Anyone wanting to see data can ask or refer back to home page threads.

Ok the one Ive been waiting for just closed.

https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/2360-...

This house shows on Zillow as 1.2M May 2020. Honestly Zillow was wrong and this time last year more like 1.25M maybe even 1.3M. I can hit this house with a pitching wedge from my driveway. BTW, its not 6BR (the first owner spent $1,000 enclosing the upstairs loft) and its not 2800 sq ft (I live in the same house and have the actual builders blue prints for these homes its 2686 sq ft).

At the higher valuation its 42% appreciation and at Zillow valuation its 54% y-o-y. Same floorplan sold 4 times last 9 months between 1.225 and 1.285. Two of those were very nice locations, one was a far inferior location and another was one of the 5 best lots/locations in a community of 1053 homes but needed a good 20K of overgrown tree removal. Starting to getting the comps that prove what I have been talking about the last month or so.

Ok so something on Camino Serbal is going to close at $2 mil now? Wait that's too low, let's say $2.25 mil. But why stop there, how about we say $2.5 mil before the year is up? Come to think of it, let's go with $2.75 mil. Actually, let's just make it a nice even $3 mil, wtf.

I'm going to need a thesaurus to come up with more adjectives to describe this market.

There's a fsbo on Robledo with an open offer at $1.9M that he is holding off on accepting for now. No question the right house on Serbal could go $2M+. I have no idea where this insanity ends but it sure looks like we are heading toward $2M homes here

Update time along the NCC. Numbers for week ended yesterday. This is the month. This is when more inventory traditionally comes on the market most years. Just not seeing that

New listings 21 - thats a very small number

New Pendings of 32 - plenty of demand. This has been around the weekly number every week for the last 4 motnhs. Remarkably consistent

Thats a -11 for the week.

Closed sales at 36 -

Price reductions at 2

Total houses for sale 73 with median of $1.85M. Iventory is up a bit in the face of less new listings and consistent demand. Id have to dig deepeer but suspect we are seeing a higher than usual fall out rate but the houses go right back into escrow. Inventory is still abysmal. While there are a handful lower priced homes the market starts around $1.25M for all but the smallest homes or those with condo ownership/zero lot lines. I also think there are a whole bunch still negotiating multiple offeres received over the weekend. I suspect prohoff is in that category. I just see a lot still active that I know have offers on them.

30% appreciation year over year is pretty much in the tank and Im seeing a bunch showing closer to 40%. I cant wait for my new neighbors. Old ones sucked

So my question is how much more appreciation before NCC is not cheaper than Silicon Valley and nice LA neighborhoods? Another 10%? 20% more? Even more than that?

Submitted by sdrealtor on May 18, 2021 - 4:57pm.

Data point. About two years ago client sold 3/2 1/2 2200 sf rancher on 1/4 acre in Silly Valley for $3.3m. They had been in it about 35 years. At the time a house like that would have been around 850-900 here in Carlsbad. Today it would be 1.4ish here. Just checked and Zillow has their old house at $3.7 m. They spent less than half of their proceeds for home 50 years newer, nearly twice the size, on a similar size lot backing to a canyon with panoramic ocean views. That was pretty appealing

That says lots of headroom is possible. Who knows how much of that we'll actually get?

I'm no expert but I'd ballpark 100% as to SV, aka current prices in NCC are about 1/2 of comps in SV area. From what I have looked at and what my friends in Sunnyvale and Mountain View say. FWIW which may not be much.

More interesting to me is that the price spiking (generally) is not only a NCC thing, SD thing or CA thing but is national and occurring in many many metro areas at some level and also internationally in many places. This is not an importing of SV refugee issue, something much bigger is going on.

Submitted by sdrealtor on May 19, 2021 - 11:57am.

Agree it is something larger but just the same it seems like faster rate and with higher prices much bigger dollar increases. I think its both macroeconomics and shifts in who lives here.

I think people spent a year in lockdown and the upper half did very well saving tons of money. The hospitaility workers for example got crushed but they ar emore typically rfenters due to mobility and affordability. After spending a year at home, people want nice homes. I know many people who even with things getting much better re covid still plan to spend much more time at home.

Also there are plenty of places that arent seeing this boom. An example is where I grew up back east. Median HH income is 10% higher than 92009, schools on par or better but prices are maybe 30% of what they are here. Whatever is going on everywhere is more a macro trend. What is going on here is a fundamental shift of what this place is and who lives here.

Submitted by sdrealtor on May 19, 2021 - 12:05pm.

Im gonna make an early call with less than full confidence. Last year in late April I noticed a slight shift of the market coming back and called that. I told my Title Insurance rep and she thought I was nuts but I was seeing green shoots and they kept growing. Typically the market slows down considerably come early june. Last year it never stopped and has kept roaring straight through.

Pouring over data as I do, I can just feel a slight slowdown starting. Its not a reversal or anything close, its more a restoration of the secular cycles we have always seen. We arent getting much inventory but we are slightly building inventory levels. I could be wrong and I'll update as I follow this but right now I get a sense July and August perhaps even June will be a little more bearable for buyers. If you are out beating the bushes, hang in there. Gonna follow this to see where it goes the next several weeks

Correct on builders. When Helecho sold there were six or seven buyers who did not get it and knew about where it went. Add another two or three or more new buyers each week and the bar keeps rising. A nicer home on a good lot would easily crest $2m. When I bought mine in 99 I thought some day it would be worth a million around when my youngest goes off to college. Never would have dreamed I'd be closer to $2 than $1m when she did but here i am. This was never a part of the plan

House in Sandalwood in escrow above $3M. Granted I think that is the nicest tract neighborhood in Encinitas east of the 5 but still. Looks like $2M fairly standard tract homes are just rounding the corner in NCC. Should be the norm this time next year unless we get much higher rates

Submitted by sdrealtor on May 25, 2021 - 4:45pm.

Last week I saw a slight cool down. This week the polar opposite. What happened in Mira Mesa did not happen here. The opposite happened.

New listings 19 - thats a very small number

New Pendings of 41 - plenty of demand to feed off the higher inventory last week

Thats a -22 for the week.

Closed sales at 34 -

Price reductions at 2

Total houses for sale 49 with median of $1.925M. It was 73 this time last week

Last week may have been an anomaly. Inventory dropped way down this week. This is when it should be building. I see a house close for $3M plus almost everyday. Just 3 years ago it was nearly impossible to sell one for over $2M.

Here is some more data in these 3 zips (92009, 92011, 92024).

May 2020
61 SFR's closed
median price of $1.25M

May 2021 to date
91 SFR's have already closed
median of $1.64M

The last week is the busiest of the month. There are 31 houses still in escrow that went under contract prior to May 1st. A bunch of these should close this week. We could end up with almost twice as many closed sales this May as last year. Of course some of that was due to COVID lock down in 2020 but notable that prices were not really impacted by the shut down. I sold two houses that closed last May. Both closed for record prices.

The median for May is already up 31% here.

For comparison I looked at MM also.

May 2020
22 closed SFR's
Median of $683K

May 2021
29 closed SFR's thus far with 8 under contract prior to May 1st which could close this week
Median 810K

Should end up with sales up about 50% higher volume and prices up around 19% y-o-y.

Shows how hyper local RE can be

Submitted by sdrealtor on May 25, 2021 - 5:06pm.

I'll add Carmel Valley also

May 2020
29 closed SFR's
Median of $1.51M

May 2021
35 closed SFR's thus far with 22 under contract prior to May 1st which could close this week
Median of $1.81M

Carmel Valley is clearly a higher priced market and always has been. There are still a whole bunch that could close this week and pull that median up but as it stands it is looking like 20% y-o-y.

The price action up here is substantially faster this year. Id guess it is because location close to work is less important now. But more importantly our housing stock up here is newer with bigger homes and bigger lots that appeal more to refugees from the North. Just a guess but id bet a nice dinner on that if there was some way to prove it.

Every week that passes it seems like there is more of a fundamental shift going on up here. Im not gonna post all the numbers but 92127 (Del Sur/4S) is seeing almost as strong appreciation (27%) as NCC. There too the housing stock is newer with bigger homes though lot sizes are more similar to CV.

I have no idea where this going to end

Can't believe houses on my old street sold for 1.8 and 1.9m respectively. That's more than 2x from my purchase that was close to peek before the Great Recession.

My neighbor who bought the house as a short sales scored big time shortly after the Great Recession from my then ahole neighbor that leveraged up the ying yang scored bigtime with a $880k purchase price. I'm happy for her. Very nice lady who owns her own biotech company.

I wish the insanity would stop. I'd rather have the ability to purchase more rentals than to see my equity go up, though I'm not complaining about it.

So is the lesson to learn. Hold real estate for the long term and there's lesson of a chance to get burned??? And if you leveraged up the ying yang, can't make payments...well then that's on you....???

Kinda funny and sad at the same time that for as expensive as I thought it was back then to buy my SFH, it's still less (at least in nominal terms)than how much one of my friends just sold their 3/3 townhome in Crest Del Mar 92130 for more, lol.

Submitted by sdrealtor on May 26, 2021 - 6:30am.

I wish it would stop also and expect it to cool down/level off one rates rise more. Prices could fall a bit but not dramatically because long term owners are protected by low rate fixed mortgages. They'll just sit and wait for better times as a whole. Of course some always need to sell and things could pull back 10-15% next downturn but who knows when that is coming.

The answer is to hold RE here long term and let the passage of time do the heavy lifting to create generational wealth. I know an older Mexican woman up here. Her long deceased husband felt that way and bought as much as he could. She owns prime real estate through out Encinitas including a restaurant locals think is a drug front because it's rarely open. It's free and clear with minimal taxes on it.

Imagine how smart people that bought small houses 40- 50 years ago in Cupertino look;)

Totally agree buying and holding over time is a great strategy. Cycles will always come and go, but this one is particularly interesting. Schiller, in his latest prognostications, seems to think there will be some pain involved if/when there is a correction.

That said, guess we're losing another San Diegan to less taxing climes. Heard Mickelson is moving to Jupiter when his youngest graduates from high school. Our golfing families have crossed paths for many years, and it's been great to watch his career--especially that win last Sunday.

Is that the person you were saying on Nextdoor that the North County Karens were all suspicious about?

Maybe questionable financing is coming back too. I just got off the phone with a really weird situation. Friend of a friend wanted someone to help cosign a loan to buy a house. I was like does he even know what cosigning means. How could he ask anyone who he barely knows if they could "simply cosign a loan" totally clueless.

Well apparently person wants to buy a $680k condo, got a loan from a credit union that requires only 5% down, and supposedly at 3% but requires someone to cosign...Weird. I mean no way in hell I would do it, but it made me wonder, are banks repeating the same mistakes again. This person there is no way they should be buying a home. Can't even balance a checkbook. I think the loan terms are suspicious. I don't think that's accurate, definitely not for something with 5% down and fixed rate... anyway...

But what will our kids talk about? LOL

And those 5% down loans are real at 3%. Many of them offer low down with low fixed rate for 5 years that adjusts once every 5 years. I think the cap is 0.5% every 5 years so would still be 3.5ish% years 6-10 if they are still there. It has been a good entry for many first time buyers with very low rates that are guaranteed to stay that way for 10 years if not longer.

A family member used one of those loans 3 years ago albeit with 20% down. I think it was around 3.375% at the time which was much lower than the 30 year. At the time she thought she would only be there through her daughters high school graduation this year. I recently helped her through a refinance into a 2.625% 30 year fixed. She's solid for life now

Oh and to tie into flyers humble brag. That daughter used to go to dance class with Phil's youngest. I met him him several times. Nice guy and I undestand the move to Jupiter. Many of my friends and their parents live there. The golf is much better there

He flies his private jet in and out of Palomar Airport. He's a pilot. Ran into him a few years ago late night on a Sunday after a tournament elsewhere. He was looking for a late night burrito. Money cant buy a burrito at an already closed divey mexican joint either

And the plan has been in the works a long time. Many of the top golfers live there including Tiger, Jack, Brooks, Ricky and more

Ok, I'm embarrassed to ask.. Who the heck is Phil Mickelson?

Sorry, I don't really follow american famous people unless they are in tech... Not to sound culturally insensitive don't give a shit nor have any desires to really know or meet them. I'm only asking so I can pretend not to be totally clueless when it comes to american socialites, but really don't give a shit...

Now, if I could meet Dr. Lisa Su, that would make my day. But that's a separate story. Beyond that, I don't know. Maybe it would be interesting to meet a few asian porn stars too on the opposite end of the extreme. Not that there's any motivation for that, it's just I don't know anyone personally in the adult film industry and it would make very interesting conversation I guess.

Agree Jupiter has great golf courses. There are many around the world, and we're trying to play as many as possible as one of our hobbies. See Phil playing our home course often, so, even with the move to Jupiter, I'm sure they will keep a place here. Can't imagine giving up life in our 'hood' entirely. He's been a pilot for years, guess he took after his Dad who was a Navy pilot, Top Gun instructor, then a commercial pilot.

Also agree success in real estate and many other things are far more interesting than golf, but variety is the spice of life, so, imo, the more interests, the merrier.

And still nobody knows any asian porn stars personally? Come on all the wealth and money people here have, and people still dont know anyone in this famous category???? How boring and disappointing. I would think anyone who is anyone would have a plug into this hot industry.

I had no idea who he was till my kid mentioned him. Prof. Golf strikes me as very very silly.

Golf, like many sports, may indeed be very silly, but most top pro players in all sports have a passion for their sports, and are doing what they love in life, while they laugh all the way to the bank. So, in those ways, sports make perfect sense at that level of play. For the rest of us, sports are just something we may choose to enjoy.
