Insight Guidance Designed to give you a quick, complete overview of both current and past market conditions, this South Bay Market Insight report covers Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, El Segundo and Torrance. 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.
