Housing Market May 2024

CoreLogic® has unveiled its latest findings on residential home sales in Southern California for March 2024. The report encompasses data concerning both new and previously owned single-family homes, as well as resale condominiums across six counties in the area: Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, and Ventura.
Dr. Selma Hepp, CoreLogic's chief economist, commented, "Southern California's housing markets are experiencing a period of stagnation due to elevated mortgage rates, affordability hurdles, and a stagnant sellers' market." She further noted, "Although robust buyer demand persists, evidenced by ongoing home price escalation and heightened competitiveness in the region, sales are declining due to a persistent shortage of available properties and sellers' reluctance to relinquish their homes to preserve advantageous mortgage rates and tax bases."

The median sales price for all tracked properties in Southern California was $753,000 in March, a year-over-year increase of 7.6% for the region.
