Insight Guidance

Designed to give you a quick, complete overview of both current and past market conditions, this Select Westside Market Insight report covers Santa Monica, Culver City, Mar Vista, Marian Del Rey, Westchester, Playa Del Rey and Playa Vista. First, we examine Year Over Year statistics, compiled from carefully collected sales data. Percent change—which was calculated by subtracting past value from current value, and dividing that product by past value—gives you a quick snapshot of how each micro-market has improved or worsened over the past year for that particular metric. Next, the Yearly Median Price graph tracks the median price of properties for each month over the past year. The median price is not the same as average price; it is the price of the property that falls in the middle of the total number of properties for sale in that particular micro-market. Finally, the Key Stats section illustrates Median Sales Price, Average Sales Price of Closed Sales, Listings for Sale, Listings Under Contract, and Properties Sold. On the next page you will find an explanation of how each value was determined.


listings were added. This is calculated by Not to be confused with Average Price, dividing the total number of homes for Median Price is the price of the property sale in a particular month by the number that falls in the middle of the total of homes that sold in that month. Four to number of properties for sale in that five months’ supply is average. A smaller particular micro-market.

MEDIAN PRICE:

AVERAGE PRICE PER SQUARE FOOT:

Found by taking the price of each property and dividing that by its square footage, then finding the average for all properties sold in the area that month. PROPERTIES SOLD:

The number of properties that closed escrow and changed ownership during the month. PROPERTIES UNDER CONTRACT:

The number of properties that are in escrow. PROPERTIES FOR SALE:

The number of properties that are for sale on the market.

This is the rate at which properties sell. It is found by taking the number of properties sold and dividing it by the total number of properties for sale. This measures the inverse of Monthly Supply of Inventory and represents how much of the current active listings (as a percentage) are being absorbed (sold or pended) each month. The Absorption Rate is presented as a percentage (%) of the current inventory. PERCENT UNDER CONTRACT:

The ratio of properties for sale to properties pending sale. AVERAGE MEDIAN PRICE:

DAYS ON MARKET (CLOSED SALES):
