Has Covid Affected Our Property Sales??? 7 Day Market Update – Hermosa Beach

Amazing…our year-to-date sales are actually up from last year, even after almost 3 months of the “Stay At Home” lockdown, the challenges in showing real estate & holding open houses, and market uncertainty. We have had 82 closed sales this year in Hermosa Beach, 2 up from last year. Currently, we have 29 escrows in Hermosa, so, I expect the differential in closed sales from 2019 to 2020 to be even greater in the next few months. With 56 active listings, we only have 1.9 months of inventory. History shows that 4 months or less of inventory is considered a seller’s market.
