One must keep in mind that a balanced real estate market is one in which there is a 6 month supply of homes on the market at any given time.  When you look at properties in downtown San Diego under $300,000, you can see that there isn’t even a one month supply, thus proving to make it a seller’s market with buyers competing for a limited number of condos.

There’s not even a 1 month supply of condos downtown San Diego under $300,000

If you look at condos in downtown San Diego priced $300,000 to $749,900, you can see there is still only a 12 month trailing average of 2.2 to 2.7 months supply.  It’s still stacking up to be favorable for sellers in these price ranges.  For properties downtown San Diego priced from $750,000 to $1M, there is still only a 4 months supply of condos for sale. 

While properties priced over $750,000 lie closer to a balanced market between buyers and sellers, the seller still has the upper hand as long as they have a desirable property.  For homes over $1m in downtown, there is an average of a 6.83 month supply.

The luxury condo market is where the best opportunities can be found because there are less buyers in this price range and more properties to chose from.   With lending loosening up, we expect to see this price category tighten up as well.
