As with most areas of Los Angeles, Beverly Hills buyers are anxiously awaiting new inventory. The Beverly Hills real estate market is a unique one given the wide variation in home prices. *The sale of a several high priced homes in one month and lower priced homes in another is going to affect the median price in a not too meaningful way.

beverly hills real estate: Los Angeles Area Housing Market Reports 2011: Beverly Hills - 01/01/12 06:49 AM
Another year as flown by and it is time to review the 2011 Beverly Hills real estate market. I have split the 2011 Beverly Hills real estate market report into four section, single family by price breakdown and condos. I have also shown relevant percentage comparisons with the 2010 statistics. What is Market Absorption? Market absorption trends show the rate that properties are selling compared with inventory which enables us to see if it is a sellers’ or buyers’ market. 6 months worth of inventory is a balanced market. Under 6 months is a sellers’ market, and anything over 6 months is a buyers’ market. (8 comments)
