Market Conditions for Sunset Park in Santa Monica, California

The Sunset Park neighborhood of Santa Monica, which has approximately 2700 single family homes, has been a very active market in the past few months. There are only 23 homes currently available with an average amount of more than 100 days listed on the market.

As of the third week of May, there are currently 15 properties that are in escrow and under contract. And since March of this year there have been 19 homes that have sold and closed escrow.

This is a positive market indicator of a neighborhood that shows a high demand with a very limited inventory.

In this market, buyers are being much more meticulous with their searches.  They are definitely looking for value since longer term goals are much more of the focus. I am seeing properties selling with multiple offers and selling above their asking prices. It is evident that buyers only make offers if they perceive that the value is there and the property might not be available tomorrow.
