The Pier at Pismo Beach, CA

There is a tremendous amount of interest in buying second homes in this market. Due to the financial crisis and housing crash, some are taking the opportunity to buy a vacation home on the central coast. Although, we have most certainly seen significant price reductions, foreclosure activity is relatively low in Pismo Beach, Arroyo Grande & Grover Beach compared to the nearby northern Santa Barbara communities of Santa Maria, Orcutt, & Lompoc.

When examining the market for single family homes and condos, the Pismo Beach market has 111 active listings, and only abut 10% could be classified as a foreclosure or pre-foreclosure (8 short sales and 4 REOs). Approximately 15% of the active Arroyo Grande market are foreclosures (189 active listings, 16 short sales and 15 REOs). And, almost 25% of the Grover Beach market is similarly affected with 15 short sales, and 7 bank owned properties out of a total of 95 active listings.

In the past 30 days since September 11, 2008, of the 9 sold listings in Pismo Beach, none were foreclosures. In Arroyo Grande, there were 30 sales, one of which was a short sale, and 9 bank foreclosures. So, one third of the sold activity in Arroyo Grande was foreclosure driven. In Grover Beach, 40% of the sold inventory (10) was either a short sale (3) or an REO (1). So, the few foreclosures that are present in these markets are being snapped up at a high rate.
