Real Estate Market Update December 2020

December 2020

Historically, November and December are known as “slow months” in real estate, but this year that couldn’t be further from the truth. Home buying continues to be at an all time high thanks to low interest rates. Even the holidays aren’t deterring potential home buyers from looking at homes. Last month in Long Beach, closed sales for single-family homes were up 30.9% compared to this time last year, despite the Thanksgiving holiday. Condo sales were even higher with 128 closed sales – up a crazy 56.1%! While condos are being listed more frequently this year than last year, this is not the case for single family homes. New listings are down 14.1%.

What do these numbers mean?

Plain and simple, sellers currently have an advantage in the market. If you have been sitting on the sidelines waiting for the right time to list your home, now is the right time. For buyers, it’s more important than ever 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.
