Here's the latest batch of information and news for Eastside home buyers and sellers. 


News & Notes

While home buyers are beginning to become more picky with more choices available, LA home prices continue to surge this summer. The LA County median sales price reached $795,000 in July. That is a record high, said the LA Times.  

On the Eastside, July was a mixed bag. Some neighborhoods,  such as Echo Park and El Sereno, saw the median sales price jump more than 30% from a year ago. But most neighborhoods posted more moderate gains, and some places, like Boyle Heights and Los Feliz, experienced a decline.
