After 2 months of near continuous rain, the South Bay sun is back. Although it may be for a short period of time, the weather is good, the land is drying out and properties are trickling on the market. The 2017 selling season is ramping up.
We have had 24 year-to-date sales so far in Hermosa and currently we have 21 in escrow and 43 active on the market. With 226 sales last year (18.83 per month),
We have a little over 2 months of inventory available, still indicating a seller favored market (6 months is the buyer/seller equilibrium).
