Southland November Home Sales Rise; Median Price Still Below Year Ago

Hope you’re having a great week!  Here’s a great article on home sales via DQ News.

La Jolla, CA—The number of homes sold in Southern California rose modestly last month from both October and a year earlier as investors and first-time buyers targeted homes priced below $400,000. Sales above $500,000 fell nearly 16 percent from a year earlier amid a troubled market for larger home loans, a real estate information service reported.

A total of 16,884 new and resale houses and condos sold in Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego, Ventura, San Bernardino and Orange counties in November. That was up 0.3 percent from 16,829 in October and up 4.2 percent from 16,208 in November 2010, according to San Diego-based DataQuick.

More often than not, sales have dropped between October and November. On average, they have fallen 8.4 percent between those two months since 1988, when DataQuick’s statistics begin. On a year-over-year basis, Southland sales have increased for the past four months.
