  1. Now this is more like it. I love when buyers have to fight over houses like a pack of dogs on bone. Santa Monica is beautiful, and I understand why you might pay a premium price for homes. What I don’t understand is where these buyers were last year.

  2. That’s the market. It would be lovely to see a balanced one for a change.

  3. We’re experiencing the same thing in a few of our communities as well–so refreshing for sellers to finally be able to MOVE themselves AND their homes!

  4. It is, isn’t it, Debe.

  5. Wow, $750,000 over list? That’s incredible. I’m glad the LA real estate market is coming back so strong, but like you, I would prefer to see a nicely balanced marketplace for awhile rather than quickly escalating home sales prices that are not sustainable.

  6. I think that was a bit of an anomaly, but until more inventory comes on the market there is going to be more of it.
