I have been monitoring the Marina Del Rey Condominium Sales activity for quite some time. I have been receiving requests from buyers and sellers to give a year to year comparison of these statistics. Here is a New Year, a new President, so here we go; this is my first Market Report for Marina Del Rey Condominiums. This will be a monthly report with a year end summary.
Therefore instead of just giving a snap shot of the Market I would like to frame the current Activity in relationship to the past two year.
For the month of January 2007 there were 16 Condominiums that sold in Marina Del Rey.
For the month of January 2008, there were 12 Condominiums, which sold in Marina Del Rey.
Now before I give the 2009 figures I would like to bring to every one's attention. That we had a tightening of credit, a severe economic downturn which has led to record job losses, making it difficult or impossible buyers to step into the dwindling pool of potential buyers of real estate. Consumer confidence has been at an all time low.
For the month of January 2009, there are 180 Active Condominiums on the Market. In addition 11 Condominiums are in Escrow where the buyers have not removed their contingencies and there are 11 in Escrow that appear to be solid. 10 Condominiums were sold this January.
Evidently the euphoria of the New Political momentum has not translated into a solid Consumer Confidence yet. Today there are fantastic opportunities out there to choose from, negotiate and Buy a home. Interest rates are at a forty year low, inventory is at about an eight month level and there are many nervous sellers willing to negotiate. This Translates to fantastic Buying Opportunities.
