The bad news is that the number of
homes sold in San Diego County dropped considerably in May 2014 compared to last month as well as a year ago.
There has been talk of low inventory for a while now. The increasing prices have been attributed in part to the lack of homes on the market. From Oct 2013 until Jan 2014, the number of active listings (homes for sale) in San Diego county decreased steadily. But that has not been the case since February 2014 when the number of homes on the market began to increase once again. So why are the number of sales down?
