Home Prices Rise in L.A. What Does It Mean for You?

1409-Havenhurst-Dr

A recent article in the Los Angeles Times states that home sales in L.A. have gone up for the first time in 6 years. This didn’t surprise me; based on what I see every day, the real estate market is doing great. But it may surprise some readers who think the market is still declining and are waiting for the mythical “bottom”. Many buyers I meet ask me when I think we’ll hit the bottom of the market because they want to buy when prices are at the absolute lowest. But with news that home prices are picking back up, I believe we’ll see a shift with even more buyers recognizing that now is the time to buy before home prices increase further.
