Median List Price

The median list price in NEWPORT BEACH, CA this week is $1,799,000. Demand measured by the Market Action Index is increasing and days-on-market is trending downward. Even as more properties come available, these are positive trends for the market.

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 notch for prices. Pricing has been weak in recent weeks and versus their absolute-high levels. The Market Action Index is a good leading indicator for the durability of this trend.
