As most of you who read my post consistently, know I am a firm believer that you have to look at a Real Estate Market Report not just as a snap shot of the previous months activities, but rather as what the Trend is. If we observe and monitor the trend, than we can make educated predictions of activity for the near future of the Real Estate activity in a particular pocket.

Unfortunately there are events that are beyond our control that will impact the local Real Estate activity. Last month there was a slowdown of the growth in the US Economy. A large part can be attributed to the earthquake in Japan, which created a shortage of parts and had a global as well as a local impact.

Then there was a huge rise in the oil prices, which caused consumers to cut back on spending. Even though the oil prices have dropped back to $100 per barrel the damage was done. The slowdown occurred.

Now with that said let us see what the May numbers looked like: There was an increase in the inventory to 165 Active Listings and  surprisingly there was a slight increase in Accepting Backup offers to 11, not as one would have anticipated based on the turbulent events. There were No Units in Hold position an indication of shorter approval time for Short sales. Previously they were taking such a long time that one had to put them on Hold Status in the MLS. The pending not surprisingly had a slight decreased to 15 Units. Equally surprising that there was an increase in the Sold category as well from the previous month’s the current one of 22. This just confirms what I have been saying all along that, there are micro markets in Real Estate and you need a knowledgeable Realtor to provide you with the guidance and data.

So for your convenience I am going to include the previous five month’s Condominium Market Reports for Marina Del Rey, CA. This way you can look at the Trends yourself conveniently.
