The April 2021 housing market stats for Long Beach CA underscore that we’re still in a strong seller’s market. As we reached just over one year since COVID changed the real estate market and the industry overall, we did see listings rise — up 44% from this time last year. However, closed sales were also up and the inventory of available homes continued to decline. Prices have continued to rise in Long Beach and surrounding communities and the time on the market continues to decline. Here’s a video with Shannon’s take on the numbers, or scroll down to see summary charts for Long Beach as well as surrounding communities.
What do these numbers mean?
The seller’s market is continuing with no sign of stopping. Here’s what we suggest for both buyers and sellers.

It’s also more important than ever to have a strategy in place for selling your current home and buying a new one. This is where a real estate expert like the ones at The Shannon Jones Team comes in.

It’s imperative that you start your home search early and with experts by your side. Patience is key, as well as the understanding that the first house you like may not be the one you get. It’s also possible that you will get into bidding wars or experience a multiple counteroffer situation. This is where the experts come in. The right real estate agent will be able to guide you through these situations and take away at least some of the stress that comes with buying a home.
Some buyers currently say they’re waiting to buy because they expect the market to crash and prices to come down. However, that’s not necessarily the case. Learn more in the video below.
Give us a call at 562.896.2456 so we can set up an appointment for you with a lender and start talking budget. We can also set up a personalized home search for you so you can be the first to know when new listings hit the market.
