The median home price in San Diego County broke the half-million-dollar ceiling in October, rising from a September price of $498,000 to $513,000.
That is according to DataQuick Information Systems of La Jolla.
Year over year, prices rose 4.9 percent, from $489,000 in October 2004.
The September-to-October trend runs counter of that in Los Angeles, Ventura and Orange counties, where DataQuick noted the median price of homes declined.
Homeowners sold some 4,155 San Diego County homes in October, down from 4,758 in October 2004.
