I have a search running on zip that forwards listings to my mailbox periodically. It only covers three different areas, but my mailbox is absolutely getting flooded with new listings. I can’t believe it. There is tons of inventory coming on the market. Couple the increased supply with the demise of the easy money (Own-it, MLN) and I think we’ll start to see housing prices fall dramatically here in short order. I’d hate to be trying to sell real estate now.January 6, 2007 at 7:41 AM #42802NeetaTParticipant
I checked “realtor.com” after I read your comment. There are about 7,000 properties listed in the San Diego area. I know there are more listings that go beyond realtor.com, but I don’t have a clue as to how to get an accurate count. I don’t live in San Diego, but plan on moving there in 2 yrs. I have made it a hobby to check on how many listings there are in San Diego. I liked San Diego when I lived there and hope I like it when I return. I have two questions for those of you who read this comment. Is there a way to get an accurate count of listings? Can I expect to get my car stolen when I move back? Sorry to get off the subject.January 6, 2007 at 8:09 AM #42803meadandaleParticipant
You know, its funny…I hadn’t really heard from the realtor who sold me house 3 years ago since we completed the transaction. Lately (probably the last 6 months) however, I have been getting mail from him all the time. He must be desperate for business.January 6, 2007 at 8:51 AM #42804barnaby33Participant
NeetaT, you can use zip realty. when you do a search of all SD it gives you the total count. Its the most accurate number that non-realtors have access to.

Or check the short sale monitor on this site for an accurate count. i update the count every Monday. At least i try to.January 6, 2007 at 9:45 AM #42809PerryChaseParticipant
I too have receive constant email listings from zip realty. There’s a lot of churn in RE listings in SD.
I also follow the LA/OC markets and I get much less email updates for those areas. I definitely think that SD is ahead of the curve in Southern California.January 6, 2007 at 9:54 AM #42812(former)FormerSanDieganParticipant
Perry – I have to agree with your last statement. I currently live in West LA and the market here seems to be just reaching a price peak in the last few months. About 9-12 months behind San DIego in my opinion.
I follow West LA and SD closely since I live in LA and still have a rental in SD.January 6, 2007 at 4:54 PM #42839CardiffBaseballParticipant
I have a few searches that email me in zip and one is Cardiff, the other Encinitas. I am getting a ton of email updates for Encinitas. I just figure it’s the new year and certain people wanting to sell, are finally getting around to listing.January 6, 2007 at 9:11 PM #42860
Also many listings are entered with expiration dates of 12/31 or 1/1 because its the easy thing to do. Alot of this will be relistings. There are also several high volume agent teams in the area that work the expired market relentlessly. They no doubt each had several expired listings from l;ast year that they put on after New Years. The real test isnt this week or next week, tis the last two weeks of January and beyond.January 6, 2007 at 9:11 PM #42861
