Long Beach Real Estate Market Update December 2015

* Home Prices and Other Long Beach Real Estate Statistics *

The median price for homes in Long Beach increased slightly last month, rising to $536,000, which is 8.3% higher than November 2014 but still below its peak in June.
The price per square foot as of last month was 9.5% higher than a year ago, but down from the previous month.

On average, homes have been selling very close to list price – at 99.1% of original list price as of November 2015. And they’ve been selling relatively quickly. As of November 2015, the average time on the market was 42 days, which is 16% less than in November 2014.

Closed sales, however, declined dramatically last month, from 220 to 148 closed sales.

The inventory of available homes for sale also fell. With just a 1.8 month supply of homes as of November 2015, this is a bit below October and 40% below the same time last year.

Long Beach Condo Statistics

The median price for Long Beach condos leveled a bit in November, yet at $305,000, it is still 11.2% higher than it was in November 2014.

The inventory of condos for sale in Long Beach is also very low. With a 1.9 month supply of condos for sale, it’s slightly below October 2014 and 48.6% below it was this time last year.

Bottom Line

The low inventory of available houses and condos for sale in Long Beach makes this an excellent time to sell a home. Right now there are a number of buyers who want to take advantage of the low interest rates and few homes for them to choose from. Despite the holidays, this could be a good time to take advantage of the seller’s market.
