La Jolla Real Estate Market: September 16th- September 23rd

This week the median list price for La Jolla, CA 92037 is $3,250,000 with the market action index hovering around 29. This is about the same as last month’s market action index of 29. Inventory has held steady at or around 183. Click here to stay informed with the La Jolla market!

The Market Action Index answers the question, “How’s the Market?” by measuring the current rate of sale versus the amount of the inventory. An index above 30 implies Seller’s Market conditions. Below 30, conditions favor the buyer.

The market has shown some evidence of slowing recently. Both prices and inventory levels are relatively unchanged in recent weeks. Watch the Market Action Index for changes as it can be a leading indicator of price changes.

La Jolla Real Estate Market: September 16th- September 23rd

This week the median list price for La Jolla, CA 92037 is $3,147,500 with the market action index hovering around 29. This is an increase over last month’s market action index of 28. Inventory has held steady at or around 182. Click here to stay informed with the La Jolla market!

The Market Action Index answers the question, “How’s the Market?” by measuring the current rate of sale versus the amount of the inventory. An index above 30 implies Seller’s Market conditions. Below 30, conditions favor the buyer.

Since we are seeing the market action index at 29, we can infer that this is a slight buyers market. Home sales have begun exceeding new inventory. This is a Buyer’s market so prices are not yet moving higher as excess inventory is consumed. If the tightening continues and the market moves into the Seller’s zone, we may see upward pressure on pricing.

Again, this week we see prices in this zip code remain roughly at the level they’ve been for several weeks. Since we’re significantly below the top of the market, look for a persistent up-shift in the Market Action Index before we see prices move from these levels.

La Jolla Real Estate Market: April 1st-April 8th

Take a look at what the La Jolla Real Estate Market is doing in real-time as of April 1st, 2019! This week the median list price for La Jolla, CA is $3,122,500, which is a $127,500 increase from last week. This is a big clue that the market is starting to heat up at a faster pace! Take note of the market action index below, it is now at 30 for the 2nd week in a row. The market action index measures the current rate of sale versus the amount of inventory. An index above 30 represents a seller’s market, where conditions are favorable to home sellers, and a market action index below 30, favors buyers. What can we can conclude from last week's data is that the market is “heating up” and shifting towards a seller’s market. A market action index of 30 represents a pretty neutral market, but as spring reaches its peak, an increase in inventory to hit the market, we predict that this market action index number will likely stay on a steady incline until we hit the peak of spring. Inventory has held steady at or around 156, which is an increase from 155 last week.

La Jolla Real Estate Market: March 10th-March 16th

Take a look at what the La Jolla, California real estate market is doing in real-time! Currently, the median list price is $2,950,000 with a market action index of 29. The market action index is used to indicate which direction the market is going in. A number close to 30 represents a neutral market. A number above 30 implies a seller’s market, where home prices are increasing.  A market action index below 30 favors conditions for the buyer, where you see home prices decreasing. In conclusion, we are currently seeing a slight buyers advantage as of this week’s statistics. The reason being that home sales have been exceeding the number of new properties hitting the market. However, we are seeing prices slowly climb as inventory is consumed, heating up for the Spring quarter. During the springtime, many new homes hit the market. People are throwing out the old and welcoming the new as the winter cold melts away and makes way for blooming crops and sunshine. Spring is also a popular time for people to sell their homes because it is towards the end of the school year and close to summer, so kids will be out of school and it is easier for families to move. If you see something out there you like, it would be smart to act now, because home prices will rise and you may miss out on a great opportunity.
