Orange County Homes – Number of Sales up 10.1%, Prices Down 5.4%

Orange County Homes – Sales up 10.1%, Prices Down 5.4%


According the Orange County Register, the number of homes sold has increased in the past year.


This would come as no surprise to many of my buyers who have had to make several offers, sometimes over listing price to compete in a market of few homes in certain price ranges.


In a time when some are heard to shout that it’s a buyers’ market, you may wonder how this can be.  It’s basic supply and demand.  In Costa Mesa, there is just over 2.5 months of inventory (meaning if no additional homes were put up for sale and sales continued at the current rate, how long it would take for all the current homes to sell)
