Newport Beach Real Estate CA Foreclosure Facts and Trends

Newport Beach CA homes Market Facts and Trends - September 2012 Report has established that Newport Beach CA homes For Sale are not governed by distressed sales like many other city and state Foreclosures.

Every market has experienced a decline in housing prices including homes in Newport Beach, CA.  However, our coastal communities will continue to be a popular choice by investors because the Newport Beach Real Estate value is in the land closest to the ocean.  "The higher you are the harder you fall" is true with the bargains that can be found on the waterfront.  I believe there will always be a buyer for these luxury homes because history has proven that Newport Beach homes overall recovery rate is greater than most other areas.

Market Facts: Only 4.5% of the 324 Homes For Sale in Newport Beach are distressed: (5) REO and (10) Short Sales, Average List Price: $2,872,771, DOM: 135, 3 Bedrooms, 3,153 sqft,, $911 sqft.
