Market Commentary

Home prices in Los Angeles are flat right now; the market has cooled down from its multi-year run. We appear to be transitioning to a buyer’s market, though the next few months will be key to understanding whether we are currently at the inflection point where prices will continue slowly rise, flatten, or fade.

Reading the tea leaves of the Federal Reserve’s commentary has led many market observers to conclude that the recent interest rate tightening moves seem to be coming to an end. In fact, mortgage rates have recently dipped; a market reaction to the Fed’s current dovishness. Further tightening is widely considered ‘on hold’ for now.

One thing is for sure, Los Angeles remains a competitive market for buyers; It’s just that the current market activity is not as torrid as recent years. In fact, one could interpret the current climate as a positive development for buyers. Per the increase in Days on Market and residential home Inventory, there's a sense that the advantages sellers have enjoyed for several years are starting to slip away.
