FALLBROOK, Calif., May 5, 2017 — High seasonal demand and a thin inventory drove real estate prices up again in Fallbrook and Bonsall, Jerry Kalman, a realtor® with HomeSmart Legends here, reported today.

April average prices at $602,000 were 12 per cent better than April of 2016 and three percent higher than March.  In April, homes took 37 days or 21 percent less time to sell than a year earlier.

“One third of the 79 sales were at or above the original asking price,” Kalman said. “Many of those that sold at or above the listing price went into escrow within a couple of weeks when they were listed.”

Cash buyers represented 19 percent of the transactions once again while VA/FHA transactions increased to 29 percent of the activity versus 35 percent recorded back in February.

Despite what he termed a “near-buying frenzy” the inventory improved to 202 units entering what he forecast would be a very busy May.

Five high end homes, four in Fallbrook, closed escrow in April with one selling at the original listing price.  Nine more, six in Fallbrook, are in escrow.  There are 59 of these million-dollar-plus properties on the market, two thirds in Fallbrook.

In April, 74 homes came off the market, an indicator of future activity, bringing the number of homes in escrow to 108.  The average price of all those off the market declined to $648,000 as many entry-level properties were snapped up by eager buyers; and the time on the market for those entering escrow dipped to an average of 49 days.

Kalman said the average selling price per square foot in the two communities, an important metric used to price homes, was $263, with Fallbrook and Bonsall up four percent in April over March.

Seven condos, five in Fallbrook, sold in April.  Five more condos were in escrow, three in Bonsall.  Fourteen condos were on the market entering May, ten of them in Fallbrook.  The average market time for those condos in the active inventory was under two months.

THIN INVENTORY IN NORTH SAN DIEGO COUNTY REAL ESTATE MARKET AFFECTS MARCH ACTIVITY

FALLBROOK, Calif., April  2017 — Prices and market-time for homes in Fallbrook and Bonsall improved in March, boosted in part by declining volume, Jerry Kalman, a realtor® with HomeSmart Legends here, reported today.

The inventory improved steadily throughout the month to 184 units.  Despite an almost 15 percent inventory increase from a very low February, any inventory below 200 units is cause for concern especially entering the second quarter of the year, he said.

Comparing March 2017 with the same period a year ago, prices were 18 percent higher at $584,000 while volume was off 21 percent.  Homes took ten percent less time to sell in March 2017 than in the comparable period a year ago.

Four high end homes, two in each community, closed escrow in March with half of them selling at or above their original listing price.  Twelve more, ten in Fallbrook, are in escrow, which reduced the active inventory in this category by 20 percent.  There are 44 of these million-dollar-plus properties on the market, two thirds of them in Fallbrook.

In March, 74 homes came off the market, an indicator of future activity, bringing the number of homes in escrow to 112.  The average price of all those off the market rose to $661,000; and the time on the market for those entering escrow dipped to an average of 51 days.

Cash buyers represented 19 percent of the transactions while VA/FHA transactions dropped to 25 percent of the activity versus 35 percent in February.

“One fourth of the 67 sales were at or above the original asking price,” Kalman said. “Many of those that sold at or above the listing price went into escrow within a month of when they were listed; notably, some were mid-range and upper-end homes priced well above the market average here.”

He reported that the average selling price per square foot in the two communities, an important metric used to price homes, decreased 11 percent to $258, with Bonsall dropping 21 percent to an average selling price per square foot of $256.  Fallbrook rose 14 percent to an average of $260 per square foot per home, partially offsetting the steep decline in Bonsall.

Four condos, two in each community, sold in March.  Six more condos were in escrow, four in Fallbrook.  Four condos were on the market entering April, three of them in Bonsall.  The average market time for those condos in the active inventory was slightly more than four months because most were higher priced townhouse and duplex-style units.

First Quarter 2017 Results

Comparing the first quarter of 2017 with the comparable period a year-ago, aside from an eight percent decline in total number of sales, other important metrics were up.   Market time decreased by 16 percent in the first three months of 2017, while prices of sold homes bumped up by nine percent, due largely to several high-end homes selling in February and March.

NORTH SAN DIEGO COUNTY REAL ESTATE SCORES SOME GAINS DESPITE THIN NUMBER OF PROPERTIES ON THE MARKET

Inventory Remains at Perilously Low Level

FALLBROOK, Calif., March 6, 2017 — February real estate activity levels in two prime North San Diego County markets were distorted by the dearth of properties on the market, Jerry Kalman, a realtor® with HomeSmart Legends here, reported today.

Kalman reported that the inventory slipped to 162 units entering March as twice as many properties came off the market and went into escrow than there were new listings.  Most notable, he said, is the slimmest of pickings in condos where only three are on the market.

Two high end homes, both in Bonsall, closed escrow in February after an average of four months on the market.  Eight more, four in each community, are in escrow; and there are 54 of these million-dollar-plus properties on the market, 70 percent of them in Fallbrook.

Looking at homes coming off the market in February, an indicator of future activity, 100 homes were in escrow, a 25 percent bump over January.  The average price of those off the market dipped slightly from January to $623,000. Time on the market for those entering escrow remained steady at just under two months.

He estimated that the rush to escrow appears to have been prompted by the outlook for interest rate increases coming in the early months of the year.  Cash buyers represented 17 percent of the February transactions while VA/FHA transactions accounted for 35 percent of the activity once again.

Comparing February 2017 with the same period a year ago, prices were 11 percent higher at $557,000 while volume was off 16 percent.  He noted that the proportion of cash and VA/FHA transactions to conventional was the same in both years.

“As in January, close to one fourth of the sales were at or above the original asking price,” Kalman said. “This has occurred in each of the last three months, with most of those that sold at or above the listing price went into escrow within a month of when they were listed.”

He reported that the average selling price per square foot in the two communities, an important metric used here to price homes, soared 19 percent to $294, with Bonsall rising to an average selling price per square foot of $360, a 55 percent gain over January, attributed largely to a pair of high end homes representing half the volume there.  Fallbrook dropped almost three percent to an average of $228 per square foot per home, and that conversely reflected the absence of high-end activity last month.

Four condos sold in February, three in Fallbrook.  Seven more condos were in escrow, five in Fallbrook.  Only three condos were on the market entering March, two of them in Bonsall.  The average market time for those condos in the active inventory was more than six months with an average price tag of $325,000.

NORTH SAN DIEGO COUNTY REAL ESTATE BEGINS 2017 ON SEVERAL POSITIVE NOTES

 

Fallbrook and Bonsall Inventory Remains Low

FALLBROOK, Calif., Feb. 6, 2017 — January real estate activity launched the new year with several positive indicators that foretell of a good 2017 ahead in two prime North San Diego County markets, Jerry Kalman, a realtor® with HomeSmart Legends here, reported today.

“Despite the normally low level of activity at the beginning of any year, Fallbrook and Bonsall posted year-over-year gains in properties sold and average prices as well as a notable improvement in days on the market,” he reported.  “The average selling price of $525,000 was six percent higher than January of 2016 and the average market time was 23 percent better at 51 days, versus 66 in the prior year.”

Continuing a trend started late in 2016, several high end homes helped boost prices as three of these properties, all in Fallbrook, closed escrow in January after an average of five months on the market.  Eight more, five in Bonsall, are in escrow; and there are 52 of these million-dollar-plus properties on the market, three fourths of them in Fallbrook.

Looking at homes coming off the market in January, a good indicator of future activity, 80 homes were in escrow.  The average price of those off the market rose 14 percent from December to $639,000. Time on the market for those entering escrow remained steady at just under two months.

Kalman reported that the inventory remained below 200 units as realtors and their sellers kept many properties off the market that were either cancelled or allowed to expire late last year.  He expected the inventory to increase as this part of North San Diego County enters the prime selling season, which normally starts after the Super Bowl.

Cash buyers represented 13 percent of the January transactions while VA/FHA transactions accounted for 35 percent of the activity.

“Almost one fourth of the sales in January were at or above the original asking price,” Kalman said. “As happened last month, many of those that sold at or above the original asking price came off the market within a month of when they were listed.”

He noted that the average selling price per square foot in the two communities, an important metric used here to price homes, dipped five percent to $247, with Fallbrook rising to an average selling price per square foot of $279, an unusually high level but understandable with three high end homes closing escrow in January.  Bonsall dropped more than 20 percent to an average of $215 per square foot per home, which reflected the absence of high-end activity in January.

Condo activity showed seven units sold, five in Fallbrook.  Four more condos were in escrow, three in Fallbrook.  Eleven condos were on the market entering February, seven of them in Fallbrook.  The average market time for those condos in the active inventory remained near four months.

2016 Scores Significant Gains Over Prior Year

FALLBROOK, Calif., Jan. 6, 2017 — Real estate activity in two prime North San Diego County markets closed the year on several  high notes as prices and volume showed expected strength, Jerry Kalman, a realtor® with HomeSmart Legends here, reported today.

“December home sales in Fallbrook and Bonsall, paced by the closing of several high-end properties, came in 16 percent better than December 2015 and eight percent above the prior month.  Volume also showed strength though it lagged last year by 16 percent,” he reported.

Looking at homes coming off the market, an indicator of future activity, the average price and number of properties going into escrow declined in December, but less than typical.  The average price of those coming off the market dipped six percent from November to $563,000, while the total number of escrows at 71 properties dropped 14 percent. Time on the market for those entering escrow stretched out again, coming in at roughly two months.

Kalman reported that the inventory dropped below 200 units as realtors pulled many listings from the market in the final month of the year.  A series of prematurely expired listings were engineered by agents and their sellers to freshen the appearance with new listings at the beginning of 2017.  “By the end of January the inventory will approach 220 units, almost 20 percent more than at the moment,” he said.

Cash buyers represented 17 percent of the December transactions while VA/FHA transactions accounted for an astounding 35 percent of the activity as it appeared lenders worked to clear their books of these transactions.

“Some 19 percent of the sales in December were at or above the original asking price, and most were VA/FHA transactions,” Kalman said. “Almost all of those that sold at or above the original asking price came off the market within a month of when they were listed.”

He noted that the average selling price per square foot in the two communities, an important metric used here to price homes, increased to $260, with Bonsall rising 21 percent to $281 based on strength in high-end homes.  Fallbrook had an average selling price per square foot of $239, a nominal dip from the prior month.

At the high end, six homes, three in each community, sold.  Half of those homes above a million dollars averaged less than two months on the market.

Approximately one fourth of the 50 active homes on the market priced above a million are in Bonsall.  Four million-dollar-plus homes, all in Fallbrook, entered escrow in December after averaging four months on the market.

Condo activity was mixed in the month as five units sold, all in Fallbrook, and they were below the original asking price.  With one exception, the average market time for those condos declined to less than a month.

Ten more condos were in escrow, six in Fallbrook.  Of the seven condos that came off the market in December, four were in Fallbrook.

Eleven condos were on the market entering January, eight of them in Fallbrook.  The average market time for those condos in the active inventory was almost four months.

Comparing 2016 with 2015

Overall, 2016 was a better year for local real estate than even a strong 2015 was.  For 2016, average prices were four percent better than 2015, while volume was up seven percent.  Time on the market was significantly improved, showing a 27 percent drop to under two months.

Ironically, volume among condos and high end homes came in less in 2016 than in 2015.  Prices were up nine percent for condos and marginally lower for high end homes.

These results at the two extremes indicated much of the strength for 2016 was in the mid-range of the market, a healthy indicator for Fallbrook and Bonsall real estate.

FALLBROOK, Calif., Dec. 6, 2016 — Real estate activity in two prime North San Diego County markets bucked the seasonal trend as prices and volume remained firm entering the final month of the year, Jerry Kalman, a realtor® with HomeSmart Legends here, reported today.

“November home sales in Fallbrook and Bonsall showed surprising strength compared with November 2015 as prices were 23 percent better than a year ago and volume here was up nine percent.  Significantly, volume was equal to October while prices slipped by six percent over the prior month,” he reported.

As expected, the average price and number of homes going into escrow declined in November, but less than typical for the 11th month.  The average price of those coming off the market dipped four percent from October to $598,000, while the number of escrows at 83 properties dropped 11 percent. Time on the market for those entering escrow stretched out again, approaching the yearly average of two months.

Entering December, the inventory declined 15 percent to 206 homes on the market, typical for this time of the year.  Kalman expected the inventory to drop below 200 units as homes are pulled from the market in the final month of the year.

Cash buyers represented 20 percent of the November transactions while VA/FHA transactions accounted for 25 percent of the activity again.

“Some 20 percent of the sales in November were at or above the original asking price, and most continued to be conventional transactions,” he said. “All but three that sold at or above the original asking price came off the market within two weeks.”

He noted that the average selling price per square foot in the two communities, an important metric used here to price homes, dipped six percent to $232, with Bonsall eight percent less than October at $220.  Fallbrook had an average selling price per square foot of $244, a four percent decline from the prior month.

At the high end, three homes, all in Fallbrook, priced over a million dollars sold.  Two of those homes above a million dollars averaged less than four weeks on the market.

Slightly more than one fourth of the 54 active homes on the market priced above a million are in Bonsall.  Two million-dollar-plus homes, both also in Bonsall, entered escrow in November after averaging more than half a year on the market.

Condo Activity Begins to Languish

Condo activity was mixed in the month as six units sold, four in Bonsall, and all of them below the asking price.  Two in Fallbrook sold above the original listing price.  The average market time for those six condos declined to less than a month.

Seven more condos were in escrow, six in Fallbrook.  All five that came off the market in November were in Fallbrook.

Fourteen condos were on the market entering December, nine of them in Fallbrook.  The average market time for those condos in the active inventory was more than three months.

FALLBROOK, Calif., Nov. 4, 2016 — Real estate activity in two prime North San Diego County markets showed pricing strength while volume continued its seasonal slip heading into the final months of 2016, Jerry Kalman, a realtor® with HomeSmart Legends here, reported today.

“October home sales continued a pace set earlier in the second half by scoring price gains of 16 percent over October 2015 and five percent over September,” he said, attributing the strong showing of an average selling price of $609,000 to continued activity in the all-important mid-range segment.

The average price and number of homes in escrow declined in October.  The average price of those coming off the market dipped four percent to $620,000, while the number of escrows at 93 properties dropped nine percent. Their time on the market lengthened as it continued to approach the yearly average of two months.

Entering November, the inventory dropped to 241 homes on the market, a marginal decline over September.  Kalman expected the inventory to decline further as some homeowners and their agents pull properties off the market over the holiday months.

He said that cash buyers continued to be less and less of a factor as 15 percent of transactions came from this category of buyer.  VA/FHA transactions accounted for 25 percent of the activity.

“Roughly 17 percent of October sales were at or above the original asking price, and most were conventional transactions,” he said. “Virtually all that sold at or above the original asking price came off the market within 30 days.”

He noted that the average selling price per square foot in the two communities, an important metric used here to price homes, dipped three percent to $247, with Bonsall eight percent lower at $240.  Fallbrook had an average selling price per square foot of $254, an eight percent gain over September.

At the high end, three homes priced over a million dollars sold, all in Fallbrook.  Several others just below that magical price point helped bring the local price averages up.  Most of that activity, Kalman said, came from Fallbrook.

Homes above a million dollars that did sell averaged more than four months on the market.  In this segment where transactions were either for cash or using conventional mortgages, several experienced steeper than average discounts to sell.

One fourth of the 58 active homes on the market priced above a million are in Bonsall.

He attributed another part of the overall increase in average prices to reduced activity in the condo segment as three in each community closed with an average selling price of $281,000.  The market time for those six condos stretched out to an average of 45 days.  Eight more condos were in escrow, four in each community, with an average asking price of $285,000.

Fallbrook: The Next Napa Valley

Wine grapes at sunset in Fallbrook, California’s, Santa Margarita River Valley, a vintner’s emerging paradise.

With many rich-soil microclimates loaded with nutrients suitable for grape cultivation and a “grower’s infrastructure”, Fallbrook is poised to become the next Napa Valley.  Several early-adopting vintners already make Fallbrook a prime growing region for wine grapes.  And with many support services available in the popular Temecula Valley Wine Growing Region, the Tuscan-like hills around this community are a perfect setting for the next world class winery to emerge.

A story in The San Diego Union Tribune, Dec, 6, 2014, adds to the vineyard creds of the county!

And Fallbrook could be a viable destination during harvest time, too.
