Market Activity in East Long Beach 90815 for September 2007

According to residential resale transactions recorded at the Los Angeles County Recorder's office for August, there were 306 transactions in zip codes 90802 through 90815--a decrease of 18% in sales for the same period in 2006 for the same area which shows 372 transactions.

California Association of Realtors reports a 27.8% decline statewide in numbers of sales for August compared to the same period last year, and an approximate 5% decline in median sales price.

Locally, though, it appears that all trends as showing in the Southern California MLS are down except the price:

Taking just the one zip code 90815, generally considered East Long Beach and including the varied housing characteristics of Los Altos, La Marina, Park Estates, Bixby Hill, Artcraft Manor, College Park West, and Stratford Square neighborhoods, 17 single family homes closed in September selling at 95% of the list price at an AVERAGE (probably very close to the median) price of $754,911 after an average of 55 days on the market--a decrease of 23% from September 2006.

The 90815 area for September, 2006, 22 single family homes closed at an average of $711,318, at 97% of the list price, after an average of 74 days on the market

For the 90815 in 2003 there were 39 sales, after 19 days on the market, selling at 99% of the list price at an aver sales price of $497,038. 2003 is the year showing the most recorded transactions from the Los Angeles County Recorder for the 11 zip codes mentioned above in the last 5 years at 423 total transactions.

The 90815 house at the right does not fit the average sale picture above--It features many interior upgrades including kitchen and bathrooms, has an earlier room addition which makes a den or a 4th bedrom, yet remains on the market after a year. The current asking price is $668,950--it's a great house for a young family because it's within walking distance to the elementary and middle schools, near shopping and the airport. If you would like to know more contact me, or find this property (it now has a little tree in the front) here.
