November 2023 Housing Market – Downtown San Diego Condo Market
In essence, October 2023 has brought forth a recalibration in the real estate market. The month over month (MoM) decreases in sales prices and price per square foot may reflect seasonal adjustments or a market response to broader economic conditions. Interest rates had skyrocketed over the last 60 days, hitting an average high of 8.6% for a conventional loan. Since the highs mid October, the rate has pulled back a bit and are currently hovering around 7.5%. The year over year (YoY) gains across these metrics affirm that the market’s fundamentals remain robust. The hastened pace of sales this month coupled with the burgeoning inventory suggests a market that is becoming more balanced, leveling the playing field for buyers. Although inventory has been growing, buyers still do not have many options to choose from.

However, when viewed through the annual lens, there’s a substantial 19.72% increase compared to last year. This dramatic change had more to do with the amount of sales in the luxury market in September versus October, and less to do with prices declining.

Months Supply of Inventory
The Months Supply of Inventory has witnessed a slight MoM uptick to 3.49 months, a 1.53% increase. The YoY change stands at 16.28%, indicating a market that is becoming increasingly supplied, which could signal a shift towards a market that is accommodating more choice for buyers.
