Startling Westside Sales Statistics

The Westside has seen sales decline steadily since mid 2007 with sale prices staying fairly steady compared to most of Southern California. Unfortunately, sales activity since the beginning of the 4th quarter of 2008 is at historically low levels and a strong price drop will not be adverted, especially in areas priced well above conforming loan limits. The sales for the first two months of 2007 and 2008 are included to provide the contrast in markets. If you would like more detailed information, please contact me.
