New York, NY (July 27, 2017) -- Douglas Elliman Real Estate, the fourth largest residential real estate company nationwide, today releases the second quarter 2017 Greater Los Angeles and LA Submarkets Market Reports. Sales in Greater Los Angeles reached a record high, with overall price trends rising and inventory declining. The submarkets showed mixed results with Venice and Mar Vista experiencing strong activity, while Malibu and Malibu Beach markets remained tight.
 

“We are seeing a rise in prices in the Los Angeles luxury market, and it’s interesting to note that median sales prices have gotten higher year over year for twenty consecutive months,” said Stephen Kotler, President of Brokerage-Western Region, Douglas Elliman. “Sales in Venice jumped, and they did in Mar Vista and Malibu Beach, while Malibu showed mixed results with stable sales and a declining inventory.”

“With falling inventory and rising sales, the pace of the Los Angeles market was brisk,” added Jonathan Miller, author of the report. “Along the Pacific Coast, Venice and Mar Vista also performed well, with Mar Vista showing the strongest conditions of the four submarkets.”
