Long Beach and Los Angeles County Selling Markets for June, 2017

It's an ever declining inventory in California.
For all of Los Angeles County in May, the median house price was $600,000, vs. $555,000 in May 2016.  Yet the sales volume decreased by 30% in that time period.

The California statewide median home price continued over $500,000, as the competition for lower priced homes keeps pushing the overall trend upward.  The number of active listings has decreased by over 13% compared to one year ago.

In Long Beach, it's a similar story. New listings are down over 7%, pending sales down almost 40%, and days on market are less than 50% of last year, but median and average sales prices of single family homes are up 5% and 6%.   The inventory is less than 3 months supply. And the list-to-sell ratio is often at 100%, or higher. In the last 30 days, only 211 single family homes sold in Long Beach, and average days on market was 26 days, with an average closing price of $701,000, per the MLS, at a los $275,000 to $3.5 million.

Yet, sellers must be reminded that unless they have an all cash buyer, current financing regulations dictate certain conditions for the borrower, and ultimately for the seller.  And buyers expect a well-prepared property. Favorable for everyone is that fact that mortgage rates continue to be low at this time.
