Frank Symons

EVP/COO, Western Region I take great pleasure in presenting the Greater Los Angeles Market Update for the second quarter of 2018. After a strong 2017, the Greater Los Angeles real estate market remains stable in the first and second quarters, and looks to continue that path for the balance of 2018. According to the CLAW MLS, when comparing the second quarter of 2018 to the same time last year, average days on market for Greater LA declined to 79 days compared to 84 days the year prior. Neighborhoods such as Malibu, Santa Monica, and Los Feliz showed a median sales price increase of 33%, 32%, and 16%, respectively. Overall, the average sales price in Greater Los Angeles rose from $2.334M to $2.635M, a 13% increase from the second quarter of 2017. Since our flagship brokerage opened in Beverly Hills in 1995, Sotheby’s International Realty has had a white-gloved finger on the pulse of the real estate market. In the pages that follow, we have prepared a thorough review of the Greater Los Angeles market, with an in-depth analysis of each of the neighborhoods we serve. I hope that you enjoy exploring our quarterly market update, and I invite you to discover more information online at sothebyshomes.com. If Sotheby’s International Realty can be of service to you in the sale or purchase of property in California or anywhere else, please call me at (310) 786-1801 so that I may personally introduce you to a local expert.
