Housing Market in Vista
The housing market in Vista has had quite the long, cold winter hasn’t it? Back in September of 2010 the median price of a home in Vista was about $368,000. Then as fall and winter settled in, home prices in Vista started settling in as well….settling WAY in. By the beginning of May of 2011, however, even the housing market conditions throughout the country in general, and in North County San Diego in particular, started to show an upswing in prices.
Seems that the median price of a home in the Vista housing market has finally begun to rebound. As of June 29, 2011 the median price of a home in Vista, CA was about $341,000, inching back up towards home prices of a year ago. Inching, but certainly not jumping.
The problem with the housing market in Vista, even though it seems that prices have risen somewhat, is that the number of homes on the market has risen (there are now 393 single family homes on the market in the Vista CA area), and the number of days these homes are staying on the market before being sold is now 135 days. This is up somewhat from a month ago, and so even though the median housing price in Vista has risen somewhat, this seems to indicate only that homes of a higher value are selling; not that more homes are selling; and certainly not that the homes are selling faster.
