All five of the factors tracked San Luis Obispo County improved from the first three quarters of 2016 to the first three quarters of 2017. These improvements include a 168 increase in total homes sold in the county. The average median home price increased by $51,261 or just over $50,000. Average sale price per a listing price percentage increased, but by only 0.15%. The average price per square foot increased on a yearly basis by $41.68. Lastly, the average cumulative days on market posted a decrease of 10 days, meaning homes for sale are selling at a faster pace in the third quarter of 2017 compared to the third quarter of 2016, despite the higher prices seen this year in both median home price and price per square foot.
