To separate fact from opinion you would have to have someone pull the median price in that specific zip code in April of 2011 vs. April of 2012. You could also check what the month-to-month rise has been and if the trend is up.

Hi Dorothy,

You'll find that the average price per square foot for homes in 92104 was $410 in the most recent quarter, which is higher than the average price per square foot for homes in San Diego. If you want to compare listings, check this: http://www.reefpointrealty.com/communities/san-diego

Let me know if you have questions, I'd love to hear from you

All the best,

In many cases seller's are reluctant to over price listings while the market is still finding it's legs, so the market forces presently are such that prices are being bid up and homes are selling at a higher percentage as relates to their listing price, and there are more incidences of homes selling for over asking price, especially when there are multiple bidders involved.

Hi Dorothy,

Many parts of the county are seeing prices go up a little. The closer to the park, the stronger values will be, but North park has always been desirable as far as San Diego neighborhoods go. You'll find lower prices right near the 805 and to the east of it. I've seen multiple offer situations for the last few years on the lowest priced properties, no matter where they were.

Let me know if you have any other questions at all.

Warm Regards,

I have to agree with the agents....however, thanks to the current stability of rates, financing remains favorable. It is only a matter of time before BOTH housig prices and rates go up. At that point,m people will be looking bakc at 2012 as the year they should have bought. I don't have the same opinion for all areas of Calfornia; however, San Diego County will always be one of the most desirable areas of the country so it is understandable that our market would improve faster.

Yes, I do believe that prices are on the rise in North Park as in many other areas of San Diego. This is due, to a significant degree, to a housing shortage in the central parts of town.

There has been almost nothing to buy, and many homes sell the first day they are on the market.

Simple supply and demand.

Hi Dorothy,
I would say so. I just sold a home in North Park last month and I believe my clients walked into some significant equity. Feel free to contact me if you are looking to buy or sell in North Park.

Thank you!

Although prices in Del Mar did decline, it remains a strong real estate market. There are still some very good pricing and opportunities. We are seeing this dwindle along with inventory. As of today, there are 102 active single family homes on the market with prices ranging from $729,000 to $43, 899,000. 5 homes are contingent awaiting short sale approval, 30 homes are in escrow and since January 1, 2012, 44 homes have sold with an average sales price of $1,678,604. Although no one can predict where prices will go, the signs are pointing to a recovering market area.....Hope that helps..

Prices are rising all over San Diego. 92104 is a large area but it is very desirable and therefore prices are increasing there as well. I tell my clients not to expect any dramatic rises in prices the next few years but over 5=10 years there should be good appreciation and most properties that you buy today using the historically low interest rates will seem like a bargain in my opinion.
If you would like to explore your options in this area please let me know.

I believe that house prices are on the rise everywhere in San Diego County as evidenced by neighboring coastal counties being priced substantially higher than San Diego County. In 92104 however, you have a community that has not dropped in value as much as other more blue collar neighborhoods; therfore, your appreciation will not be as great or as fast. Still, a purchase in 92104 now at fair market value would probably be a steal in a year from now. Economists are predicting 2013 to be a growth year for real estate prices and that 2012 is the bottom. Again, everythin is regional ....
