By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Home Jane Realty BRE# 01439865

West Hollywood is still one of the more affordable communities in Los Angeles.  An incorporated city with a high Walk Score, West Hollywood has great dining, stores, galleries, and nightlife, and is a much sought-after neighborhood to live.

How did the West Hollywood real estate market do in 2012?  (The West Hollywood area on the MLS does include neighborhoods just around the city itself.)

Sellers Market Balanced Market Buyers’ Market
Less than 5 months 5 to 7 months More than 7 months

 
West Hollywood real estate has a much lower concentration of single family homes than condos and apartments and sales were down slightly in that market.  But there is also low inventory.  The median price was up slightly over 2011.

Sales of condos was up with the media price down slightly over the previous year.

As with other Los Angeles neighborhoods, inventory is low and buyers are out there looking.

Jane - Living in a community that has a high walk score is wonderful.  It's nice to have the option to walk to dinner, or to a grocery store and not have to always get in your car.  As always your real estate insight into the West Hollywood area is impressive.  You are a go to REALTOR for anyone looking to buy or sell in the West Hollywood area!

Nice market update for West Hollywood 2012. It is amazing how many buyers are coming out and the lack of inventory. It is leaving many of my buyers frustrated. I am actually door knocking asking people to sell their home!
