Avila Beach Home Sales & Prices: 2005-2009

Avila Beach is considered, perhaps the most sought-after beach town in San Luis Obispo County, due to its location and very limited supply of homes. Traditionally, Avila Beach has held the highest median sale price in the county. A review of the home sales and sales prices from 2005-2009 showed that Avila Beach had not been immune to the housing crisis and financial breakdown.


 The median home price rose by 10% in 2006, and had dropped year over year since 2006 to a low of $631,800 in 2009. This reflected a cummulative decrease of 32% over the four year period. The number of homes sold was irregular. The even years of 2006 and 2008 produced lower numbers, i.e. 16 and 18 home sales respectively, while the odd years fared better. 33 homes each were sold in 2005, and 2007. In 2009, 27 homes closed escrow.


Buyers appeared to be paying between 3% to 6% from 2005 to 2008, and that advantage increased to almost 10% in 2009, reflecting a stronger buyer's market in 2009. The trend is expected to continue throughout 2010 and the next 3-5 years.
