There were 12 closed home sales in 90804 in July 2016. Though there were just two closed sales in February, since then the number has climbed substantially. While the number of closed sales have fluctuated a lot in recent years, the number of closed sales in July 2016 was 33.3% increase from the previous July.
The inventory of homes for sale has increased in 90804, likely due to increasing property value. In July 2016 there was a 3.5 month supply of homes for sale, representing a 6.3% increase from the previous year.

Condominiums in 90804
The price of condominiums in 90804 increased from June to July of 2016. The median condo price in July was $305,000, which reflects the same value as July of last year. However, overall value continues to trend upwards with spikes in value.
There were 9 closed condominium sales in June 2016. Low inventory in the area may indicate that there simply were fewer homes for buyers to close on. An increase in properties towards the end of July will open the door for more potential closed sales.
Condominiums for sale in this area have seen a reduced number of days on the market from June to July 2016 at 44 days, indicating new listings are going quickly. This is surprisingly still 7.3% faster than the previous year, which took 41 days on average.
Despite a brief slowing of sales, the 90804 area continues to exhibit strong sales and real estate appreciation in the greater Long Beach area. With few homes on the market, there is a high demand from buyers for this increasingly trendy neighborhood.
