The 2 bed 2 bath upper level unit was listed for $699,000 on June 17th, 2022 and was on the market for 19 days before going into escrow. This unit closed escrow in 21 days. The unit sold for $10,000 under list price. The Buyer obtained a loan for $531,750 or 75% of the purchase price or loan-to-value exceeding conventional loan down payment limits and most likely requiring private mortgage insurance (PMI).
In terms of upgrades, this home had minimal improvements. The most noticeable being the addition of some additional lower cabinets in the dining area adjacent to the kitchen and recessed lighting in the living room and kitchen area.
This sale signals the end to the Seller’s Market as we see a noticeable drop in the price per square foot - dropping to $820.60 PPSF (vs the 2022 average of $859.46 PPSF). The PPSF average includes 5 previous Del Mar Villas transactions that occurred in the 1H of 2022. In addition to a significant increase in the days on market (DOM).

The unit faces the parking lot near Camino Mira Del Mar entrance and is subject to potential traffic noise and less privacy.

This sale represents the end of the "Sellers Market", with weakening market conditions. Despite being one of the most highly sought after condominium communities in Carmel Valley, we start to see a dramatic increase in the days on market (DOM) and a drop in the price per square foot (PPSF).
As you examine the listing images you may also notice the poor quality photography (e.g. lighting, angles, perspective, etc.) and staging. Ask yourself, would these photographs present my property in the best way possible, helping prospective buyers envision this being their new home?!?! Hold your real estate agent to a higher standard.
Identifying the upgrades, the PRO's and the CON's of each unit and each sale and then knowing these sales comparables intimately is the key for your agent to plead your case to a seller and help you negotiate and then buy at the absolute lowest price point possible, without this in depth homework, you do not have a strategic advantage to negotiate. DO NOT put your trust in anyone other than the most experienced condo buyers agents that you can find. Put your trust in Brant Lee and Chaco Clotfelter the #1 condo agents in Carmel Valley to help you identify opportunities, competitively navigate and then negotiate the offer process and then enjoy a position of control once in escrow.
