This quarter we’ve seen prices drop and San Diego 2-4 units take longer to sell. It’s not considerably alarming because of the fact that 4th quarters have had a tendency to do this in the past. What will be interesting to see is if the first quarter of 2016 rebounds as it should. Comparing the 2015 statistics to 2016, we see that we’ve had another incredibly strong year with San Diego 2-4 units. We will continue to monitor the market and see how new factors in the economy will impact San Diego 2-4 units.
