San Diego, CA Summer 2018 East County Real Estate Market Update- Watch Mt. Helix Lifestyles Real Estate Services Broker, Jason Kardos, discuss some of his recent observations with “Move Down” buyers and 3D Photo Virtual Tours with Ticor Title Representative, Ryan Lipsey. Feel free to contact Jason or Ryan for more in depth reports and to have your real estate questions answered. This video description will focus on an analysis or the East County City of El Cajon. Based on the statistical ‘median’ listing price (which is different from the average price). The median value is used to peer into the ‘trend’ of prices. The actual ‘average’ listing prices will be higher. If you want a great deal on a home, the median listing price for El Cajon is $515,000, and although many listing prices may be higher, this internal ‘core value’ trend has already gone up since last month. What this means to you is that you have competition. Prices going up means there are more ready buyers than sellers in the El Cajon area pushing the core values of homes up. If you want a great deal on a home in the El Cajon area, you need to act sooner than later. What this all means to you is that you don’t have as much time as you think you do. Already this month, 20.28% of the current homes for sale reduced their prices. Which means many homes in El Cajon are overpriced, and there is room for negotiation and are eager to sell. What this means to you is that you can shop for homes in the El Cajon area that are a little more higher priced, knowing that you can negotiate the price down. So start looking now so you can get the nicest home in the best El Cajon neighborhoods at the best price.
