My Take on Laguna Beach's Real Estate Market

What a month.

  • As predicted in February’s report, the March median prices rose. They were up $145,000 to an even $2,100,000 – the third highest print ever. Chart on page 7..

  • The number of closings – at 36 – was twice February’s number. Closing detail on page 3.

  • The supply of homes imploded by almost 50% to a very normal 7.7 months. Chart on page 10.

  • The sold 12-month Moving Median broke to an all-time high at $1,875,000. Chart on page 7.

  • April 1st pending volume – at 48 -- remains in a healthy range. Chart on page 9.

  • The $2-3M sector was particularly impressive. 1/3 of all closings in March were in that sector. All sector breakdowns on page 4.

  • Also notable was the $3-5M price point. The supply of homes in that sector collapsed from over 31 months to just under 13.

What’s next?

  • After going up 5 months in a row for a total of $550,000 in increases, I am now forecasting a pull back.

  • With April 1st’s pending prices $350,000 lower than March’s sold median, my Pending Indicator – which has never been wrong – is now signaling a short term decline. The short-term Pending Indicator chart can be found at
