Supply and Demand


In the last few weeks the market has achieved a relative stasis point in terms of sales to inventory. However, inventory is sufficiently low to keep us in the Seller's Market zone so watch changes in the MAI. If the market heats up, prices are likely to resume an upward climb.

Median Price
The market appears to be hovering around this plateau. Look for a persistent change in the Market Action Index before we see prices deviate from these levels.

7-day Average

90-day Average

Quartile Prices
Pricing trends have been lacking strong directional indication lately. Quartiles 4 and 2 are up while Quartiles 3 and 1 are basically flat in recent weeks. Watch for persistent shifts in the Market Action Index for a leading indicator of stronger price moves in the market as a whole.

Price per Square Foot


While prices have been basically flat, the price per square foot has been heading downward. While not a sign of broad strength in a market, larger homes are coming more available and buyers can see more home for their money.

Market Action Index


The BEVERLY HILLS market is currently in the Seller's Advantage zone (greater than 30). The 90-day Market Action Index stands at 34.39 which indicates that demand is strong and available supply of homes gets snapped up relatively quickly.

Market Action Index per Quartile


Not surprisingly, all segments in the market are showing high levels of demand. Watch the quartiles for changes before the whole market changes. Often one end of the market (e.g. the high-end) will weaken before the rest of the market and signal a slowdown for the whole group.

Buyers/Sellers Cutoff
Residential house prices are a function of supply and demand, and market conditions can be characterized by analyzing those factors. Watch this index for sustained changes: if the index falls into the Buyers Advantage zone (below 30) for a long period, prices are likely in for a downward correction.
