One reason homes are selling relatively quickly is the lack of inventory of homes on the market in 90806. 1.9 months of supply was available in July 2016, making it an ideal time to list in combination with the lowered number of new listings that came on the market in the same time frame.

Active listings in 90806 also declined in July, falling from a recent peak of 34 in April 2016 to 24 in July. In comparison to July 2015, the number of available listings has dropped 31.4%.
