Orange County CA Home Selling Markets Now Solid with Buyers


Jon Lansner at the Orange County Register reports about of local Orange County CA real estate markets.  I like his recent article – “Foundation builds for rebound in O.C. housing” – June 3, 2012, and here are some highlights:

  • April 2012 was the busiest Orange County home buying April since 2006.
  • 57 of 83 Orange County zip areas had year-over-year sales sales up – for thirty days prior to May 8, 2012.
  • OC beach towns recent home sales during that time were up 25 percent from last year.
  • South county inland areas had 14.3 percent home sale increase as compared with same time last year.


I also like and follow Steven Thomas at his, and here are some highlights from his article as of May 24:

  • “Market time” is benchmark on how many months it theoretically takes to sell the entire inventory in the local MLS for-sale listings at the current pace of pending deals being made.
  • “Market time” was 1.57 months for Orange County CA buyers to buy all homes for sale at current pace vs. 3.68 months a year ago.
  • All OC home selling markets were faster during this time than one year ago.
  • Home buyer demand at OC is very strong – with tight inventory of homes for sale.
  • Orange County home buyer demand is expected to remain strong through summer months this year.
