reasonably stagnant. Watch the Market Action Index for persistent changes as a leading indicator before the market moves from

Market Action Index


The MISSION VIEJO market is currently quite strongly in the Seller's Advantage zone (greater than 30). The 90-day Market Action
Index stands at 47.02; indicating very little supply relative to the demand.

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.
