Aptos (95003 zip code) Summertime Home Sales Report


aptos beach homes


The 95003 zip code encompasses the areas of Aptos, Rio Del Mar, Seascape and Seacliff.  The Aptos area is located on the south end of Santa Cruz County, between Capitola/Soquel and Watsonville.  Rio del Mar/Seascape has long stretches of beaches and a vacation atmosphere.  Many people own second homes or vacation homes there.  For example the Seascape Resort is a vacation community. 





Let's take a look at how Aptos or the 95003 zip code area fared for home sales in the Summer of 2011:

In June there were 23 Aptos home sales, 20 home sales in July and 25 Aptos home sales in August 2011.

The average Aptos home sale price in June 2011 was $530,000, in July the average price was $822,000 and in August the average Aptos home sale price was $644,000.  As you can see there is quite a swing in the average Aptos home sale price over the summer months.  This can sometimes be attributed to a multi million dollar beach home selling in a particular month which can skew the #'s.

The average days on market in Aptos varried between a low of 95 to a high of 126 this summer.  The 95003 zip code is not the fastest moving Real Estate market in Santa Cruz County but it is not the slowest either.  There are foreclosures and short sales in many areas in Aptos or 95003 zip code and there is opportunity for first time buyers and investors to buy homes a great price near the beach.  There are homes priced under $400,000 in the Aptos area now.
