Whittier Homes Sold Days on Market


The average Whittier home sale price in April was $323,938, atn average cost per square foot of $227.80.

401 Whittier homes are currently in Backup or Pending status, indicating that the next couple of months will see a higher number of closed sales than in the previous 2 months.

Homes are taking an average of 107 days to sell in this market.

It would take 2.4 months, at the current rate of sales, for all the current Whittier homes
on the market to sell. Technically a Sellers’ Market is when there is less than 5 months
of supply. At 2.4 months absorption rate, Whittier is clearly in a Strong Sellers’ Market, according to a pure statistical analysis. However, despite these technical statistics, today’s low prices, and the historically low interest rates put home buyers into a very good position, and from that perspective, we could call it a Buyers’ Market.

In other words, home affordability is very high right now for anyone looking to buy a home. Nonetheless, with the inventory of  homes for sale in Whittier being so extremely low, home buyers should expect strong competition from other buyers who may be interested in buying the same house they fall in love with.  But, when buyers find the right home, it is much more affordable today than it has been since 2002.
