Eastside House Hunter Cover

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

News & Notes

Condo vs House:  By almost every measure, the condo market trailed the single-family home market during 2020, according to Zillow. In November, for example, the median sales price for condos in the greater Los Angeles area rose 5.5% compared to 11.7% for a single-family home.

Not-So-Hot: Where will home values show the biggest growth this year? Not L.A., according to a survey conducted by Zillow.  LA home values are expected to grow more slowly than the national average.

Hi-Low: The highest priced Eastside home sale within about the past week was a 4-bedroom Los Feliz Tudor that sold for $2,200,000 ($317,000 over asking); the lowest was a 3-bedroom fixer in East LA that went for $400,000 ($1,000 over asking) in a probate sale.
