It’s been a while since we checked in on Palms  real estate in the city of Los Angeles. Palms is a great neighborhood in which to consider buying a home.  It provides easy access to the ocean, Los Angeles International Airport, Culver City, and Westwood, home of UCLA.  Homes are among the more affordable in Los Angeles, with a great school in Clover Avenue Elementary School, a National Blue Ribbon School.

It's time to take a look at the Palms|Mar Vista housing market.  In our local MLS the two areas are joined and splitting them would not show an accurate picture.The important figures to look at here are the number of homes sold per month and the existing inventory.  If there is more than six months' worth of inventory this designates a buyers' market, less than six months a sellers' market and around six months it balanced. Median shows the middle price range, i.e. half the homes sold above that price and half below. Average days on the market really is not accurate since one house sitting on the market for a while or one selling quickly is going to skew the numbers somewhat.  Unfortunately, the only numbers we get are the average. So let's see what's been happening in the Palms and Mar...

The Palms and Mar Vista housing report statistics below are taken from the MLS CLAW and are for single family homes only.  They do not include condos, income property, or private sales. Home sales in Palms and Mar Vista,  show continued growth in May, with buyers taking advantage of the federal tax credit which expired at the end of April, but allowed those under contract to close until June 30th. Also the California home buyers tax credits started on May 1st so many waited to take advantage of both. The number of homes sold was down slightly again over April, but the number of homes under contract was up by 200%. The median price was down slightly and the median sales price vs listed price took another upward spike.  The number of days on the market for homes sold was up slightly. Pal...
