Real Estate & Interest Rate Market Update
  • As of December 2016 SoCal Sales dropped -2% (from the year prior)
  • SoCal Active Listings dropped by -21% (compared to same time last year).  There is a significant shortage of homes for sale, compared to the amount of home buyers.  This has led to prices continuing to increase and is defined as a Sellers Market (where it is much easier for the Seller to negotiate and Sell their property than the Home Buyer who often competes against multiple offers).  
  • Orange County:
    • As of December, the median sale price of existing Single Family Residences was $745,000 up 6% since last year, up 1.4% from the month prior

  • The California Sales Price to List Price Ratio for December was 98.1%, down 0.2% from the prior month and up 0.1% year to year.  This means that on average homes sold for 98.1% of what they were listed for.  Of course this will vary greatly by price point, location and the demand for the specific property.
