For San Diego, the market top was around the summer of 2005. Since than, many neighborhood real estate values have been on a continuing decline. A very important point to keep in mind, is that most published sales data (including chart data below) do not reflect the very prevalent buyer concessions both the new and resale San Diego sellers are having to pay. One escrow officer estimated that over 90% of her escrows have the sellers paying buyer fees and or giving the buyers a credit at the close.  Many of these buyer concessions (typically closing costs) are running 1 to 3% of the sales price

Largest value drop on the chart below was 34.2% in Mission Valley (92108). In Mission Valley there were 30 sales in 2007  and 32 sales in 2006.

  1. You made some good points, and you’re right. Yet I’ve heard some compare the current stock market to the early 70’s. I can actually remember where there wasn’t money available for conventional loans, you had to get your loan in by the first of the month, because you knew they couldn’t commit much later, there was only so much $ to go around. Then again some lenders would only make loans if they had the existing loan. I thought oh well, guess I’ll just have to do FHA/VA loans for a while. We will get through this.

  2. It’s much harder for troubled borrowers to get a loan now. The lending industry has tightened up standards for lending to elimintate the slide of foreclosures due to subprime lending practices targeting those troubled borrowers. The local media has presented the facts in a negative light, but a return to normalcy is about to occur.
