2010 Snapshot – Pismo Beach Foreclosure Market

September 24, 2010

Welcome to Pismo Beach!


Wondering what the market for home and condo foreclosures is like in Pismo Beach?  Here is your answer: 

Pismo Beach, California foreclosure activity:  There are 139 active and pending homes and condos in Pismo Beach currently.  Of those 139 properties, 9 homes are foreclosures and 12 are short sales.  Looking back six months, there have been 35 sales in Pismo Beach with an average listing price of $671,239, and an average selling price of $616,669, so sellers are getting about 91.8% of their asking prices in Pismo Beach indicating some significant bargaining room for buyers.   Average days on market were 172 with $393 per square foot paid. 

Of the 35 property sales, 9 were foreclosures (25%) and 5 were short sales (14%).  So although there are not a tremendous amount of foreclosures currently on the market in Pismo Beach, they clearly are a significant force in the market and buyers appetites are focused on short sales and foreclosure listings.  Looking at sold foreclosures, the selling prices are about 89.3% of asking prices reflecting the significant bargaining room that makes foreclosures so appealing to buyers.  Days on market were also shorter at 76, and averaging $341 per square foot paid.   Average selling price for a Pismo Beach foreclosure listing during this time period was $593,167.  Agent note — I  actively work in the field with Pismo Beach buyers, and although they prefer the condition of regular sales, they are often turned off by the price difference.  Even though a regular listing is usually far superior in condition to a foreclosure, it still must be competitive in terms of price in order to catch a buyers eye in this market.
