All information provided by MLS/CLAW is deemed accurate but is not guaranteed.

With the exception of houses in 90403, sales were up briskly in the second quarter vs the first.  In the Santa Monica condo market the median price was up overall, although short term comparisons don’t reflect the market accurately.

There a total of 50 houses listed for sale with 116 sold over the past 6 months and 37 under contract.

There are 54 condos listed for sale with 200 sold over the past 6 months and 64 under contract.

The severe shortage of inventory continues.

With interest rates already up 1% over the past month, Santa Monica home sellers should not wait to put those homes on the market before the buyer pool starts to dwindle.
