Prices in Long Beach, Lakewood, Cerritos, Signal Hill

Home prices continue to rise in Los Angeles and Orange Counties, 6% to June of this year from June of last year according to the Los Angeles Times.  In the four cities below, the average days on market for a single family home in August ranges from 41 days (Lakewood) to 67 days (Signal Hill). Long Beach had total closings of 193 (not surprising since it's the largest city of the four), Signal Hill had 6 closed sales, Cerritos had 26 sales, and Lakewood had 72 sales.

Even though the National Association of Realtors® reported that sales in July were the highest since 2007, Long Beach and Cerritos sales volume decreased somewhat in August.

Housing inventory is still low, although a recent daily trend for the local market shows a higher number of new listings in the MLS than closed sales. For August, however, each of the four cities below shows a decrease in inventory supply from the prior month: 1.6 months (Lakewood) being the lowest, and 3.7 months (Signal Hill) being the highest. Long Beach had 2.2 months supply in August. The traditional norm for a normal market supply has been 6 months.  This is a long term trend: Prices go up while inventory remains low.

Condo prices, which are typically lower than single family home prices, also increased from the prior month: average prices in Lakewood -- $485,000; Signal Hill -- $379,000; Long Beach -- $362,000; Cerritos -- $392,000; all prices represent increases from prior month range from 2% (Signal Hill) to 60% (Lakewood).
