La Jolla Housing Trends and Statistics

Sitting on the northern edge of San Diego along the stunning coastline of the Pacific Ocean, La Jolla is known for hosting dozens of oceanfront properties. According to the August 2013 Real Estate Report, there are currently 123 condominiums and 391 total properties for sale in La Jolla, California.

Over the last month (September 2013), the average listing price for La Jolla real estate has increased by $34,000 to $2,934,000. However, the median sales price is now $975,000, which is a 4.4 percent, or $40,000, increase compared to the prior quarter of the year. It is also up nearly 15 percent, or $125,000, since last year at this exact time. What does this mean? The real estate market may be taking a turn for the better and we can hopefully expect to see prices climb.

The median sales price for one bedroom properties in La Jolla is $272,000, up 8.2 percent from last year. A two bedroom home is up 15 percent from last year to $538,000.
