Median List Price

The median list price in LAGUNA BEACH this week is $1,837,500. Inventory has been tightening and days-on-market decreasing recently. The Market Action Index shows demand heating up. These are relatively bullish signs for prices.

Supply and Demand

Home sales have been exceeding new inventory for several weeks. However, because of excess inventory, prices have not yet stopped falling. Should the sales trend continue, expect prices to level off soon and potentially to resume their climb from there. Watch prices as the market transitions from a buyer’s market to a seller’s market.

Price   

Again this week we see a downward tick for prices. Pricing has been weak in recent weeks and versus their absolute-high level. At this point, we will be looking for a persistent upward shift in the Market Action Index as a leading indicator of a trough in prices.
