Downtown San Diego Condo prices and home prices all around the San Diego area are starting to increase. One factor to the increase can be home owners who owe more money on their mortgages that what their homes are actually worth.
Realtor Magazine and their article “Underwater Home Owners Help Lift Home Prices?” informs that this could be the case in certain markets. Home owners who are underwater and who risk taking a loss on the sales price don’t want to sell. This is leading to a decrease of inventory and gives home buyers less to choose from. This is bringing up the prices on homes that are available for sale.
Downtown San Diego has experienced a shortage of inventory for some time now. There are currently 173 units for sale in Downtown San Diego and many of these are distressed properties such as short sales and bank owned.
91 Downtown San Diego Condos and Downtown San Diego Lofts were sold in the month of June 2012. 54% of the transactions were traditional resales. There was a dip in cash buyers this month down to 36% from 44% in May 2012. As expected, 68% of the transactions were under $500,000. However, the average sale price was up 5% to $475,254 from last month.

In the current Downtown San Diego Real Estate market, a large group of people are choosing to rent instead of buying a home. The Wall Street Journal reports in the article “Rents Increase as Vacancies Dry Up” that competition is raising which forces rent prices to increase.
Currently, vacancy rates are at their lowest levels in more than a decade. Average rent now tops over $1,000 a month. This puts San Diego in line with places such as Miami, Seattle, and Chicago. Vacancy rates themselves fell from 4.9 percent in the first quarter to 4.7 percent; the lowest level since 2001. So far, this is only the third quarter to have a vacancy rate below 5 percent in the past three decades. It is believed that many people are looking to have their own place. Because of more stringent lending standards and questions about job security, many are opting to rent rather than buy home.
As the overall economy recovers, new dynamics for both rental and homeownership will be discovered. If you are considering renting or buying a Downtown San Diego Condo or Downtown San Diego Loft, it is always important to know whether or not prices are shifting in your favor.
