It has been taking an average of 3 to 4 months to sell a home in Rancho Palos Verdes. Properties are selling for
approx. 93% of original list price.
 
 
 
 
The average list price of homes offered for sale had trended downwards for the first 5 months of the year, but then picked up again the last 3 months, but is approx.8% lower than the the comparable 3 month period last year. The average price of homes sold has been much lower than the average list price of homes but did increase in August.. 
 
 
 
 
 
The number of months inventory, based upon the average monthly sales over the last 3 months ,has also decreased to less than 3 months of inventory, historically very low
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Combined with record low interest rates, now is an excellent time to consider buying a home.
