Market Conditions in Rancho Santa Margarita

Real Estate Agent with M Realty

The short sale condition in South Orange County continues to have a severe impact on our market and on prices.  Until some of the Bank Owned and Short Sale inventory diminishes - we will continue to have pressure on prices.

That being said, you can see from the following graphes that the # of escrows is on the rise.  Whether that is temporary seasonal buying, or an actual improvement in our market remains to be seen but I suspect the former.

If you break down the inventory by price, the number of distress sales is even more alarming in the lower price points:

Properties over $600,000 have significantly less Distress Sales, however there is much less movement in the higher price ranges.
