A Snap Shot and Videos of Properties for Sale Under a Million in Laguna Beach

Before going into the detail of the properties under $1m, I’d like to put it in context of where the Laguna market ended up in 2011.

Year End Highlights: 32 sales in the month of December, the highest month for all of 2011; 90 sales in the 4th quarter, best quarter of 2011; only 228 Active Listings at the end of the year, the lowest number of Actives since December of 2007 (four years ago).

Secondly, it is pre spring, which is when the homes for sales usually sustainably increase.

Thirdly, a client shared with me the following graph on homes for sale under $1m for the last 10 years. Pretty interesting that from 2004 to 2007 there were hardly any properties for sale under a million. Spiked up to over a 100 in April 2011 and now is at 49 properties.

We need to keep an eye on what happens this spring, which starts next month.

There are currently 49 properties for sale for less than a $1 Million

That’s about a 3 month inventory based on 15 sales a month, which has been the average amount of sales in this price range.
