My Take

As forecast, median sold prices did rise -- $210,000 since December and $170,000 in February -- to $2,045,000. Pending prices lead closing prices. In the last two years of covering Laguna Beach, I have found that divergences between pending and closing prices exceeding $250,000 are very predictive. In December’s report I did notice pendings $260,000 ahead of closings. If you follow Laguna Beach prices you might want keep an eye on pendings.

Back to February. Although up, it was very ugly. The average price reduction more than doubled to just over $540,000. The average price reduction percentage also doubled from 7% to 14%. With active listings up 28% since December and with February closings imploding by 46%, the supply of homes almost tripled to 14 months.
