If you’ve been keeping an eye on the latest real estate news, you’ve likely heard about how the current real estate market is shifting. But, how exactly is that displayed in market statistics and how does it affect you as a home buyer or seller? In the last 30 days, we’ve started to see inventory build and a change in home prices. Some are concerned that the change in prices is foreshadowing a housing “bubble burst”, however, there’s a difference between price decline and price deceleration.

If you’re a home buyer that’s been waiting patiently on the sidelines for inventory to increase, now may be the perfect time to jump back on your home search. Take a look at the graphs below that show recent increases in inventory in Long Beach, the decline in the number of showings, and the median sales price trends.
