The real estate market in Long Beach, CA is hot, hot, hot! In February 2022, we continued to see a trend of low inventory and as a result, an increase in home prices.
The months supply of inventory in Long Beach was only 0.9. This means that if homes stopped coming on the market completely we’d run out in less than a month. Talk about stiff competition. The median sales price of single-family homes was $900,000 and for condos, it was $562,500.
So what does this mean for you as a home buyer or home seller? If you’re a home buyer, you’ll need to find the real estate right team and be patient, persistent, and creative when it comes to making offers. Our team has strategies in place to help you make the most out of the current market conditions and get your offer accepted. As a seller, it means you’re in a very strong position with the opportunity to sell your home for top dollar.
