Just in – March’s HomeDex Report
The Lawhead Team would like to share March’s HomeDex Report for North San Diego County:
As COVID-19’s impact spread across the country in March, the stock market declines started in February accelerated downward before recovering a bit in the last week of the month. With volatility across all the financial markets, lenders began tightening underwriting standards and some buyers found they no longer were approved for a loan. Massive layoffs also shook the economy with 6.6 million initial jobless claims filed in a single week—double the number last week and ten times higher than any other week on record prior to this month.
HomeDex Report: Closed Sales decreased 3.5 percent for Detached homes but increased 22.3 percent for Attached homes. Pending Sales decreased 20.8 percent for Detached homes and 19.9 percent for Attached homes.
The Median Sales Price was up 4.4 percent to $715,000 for Detached homes and 1.9 percent to $470,000 for Attached homes. Days on Market decreased 18.4 percent for Detached homes and 27.8 percent for Attached homes. Supply decreased 37.9 percent for Detached homes and 26.1 percent for Attached homes.
While the effect of COVID-19 is varied throughout the country, we are likely to see impacts to housing activity now and into the coming months. Its continued spread is leading many companies and consumers to change their daily activities. ShowingTime is closely monitoring the situation and releasing daily updates on changes in showing activity.
