Los Angeles's Housing Market at a Glance

The epicenter of Southern California, Los Angeles brims with an art scene that reached its height in the mid nineties and today still breeds creativity under hazy sunsets. A metropolis of beaches and endless freeways, you’ll find stars at the Grove and urban hipsters hanging out in Venice, designer shops along Rodeo Drive, and rows of skinny palm trees along Sunset boulevard.

LA has as many homes on the market as it has palm trees. Los Angeles’ market is active with 37,501 real estate agents working across the City of Angels. The average home stays on the market for 80 days, and homes typically sell for 97.6% of the initial list price, which means (unfortunately) that homes tend to sell for under asking. Sale prices have increased 5.5% over the past year, so you’ll have to put up a little more to secure that old Hollywood house with the infinity pool.
