Weekly Inventory Update

Active SFR Inventory

3/24: Adding OC Renter's Los Angeles County month-end inventory stats for comparison, and moving my 2/07 weekly detail to History. Both LA County and Santa Monica inventory peaked last October.

And adding New listings for previous month. March is MTD. Notice how many new listings in Mar Vista.

3/17: Drop in SM. Churn in MV.
2/23: Most striking is the continuing stalemate, shown by rising DOM. Well-priced new listings and a few older listings sell, and rest just sit and sit.

Thanks for all your work.

Thanks for the inventory update. Just from looking at the paper on Saturday you can tell Mar Vista inventory is rising fast. I think it's going to be one of the areas to show signs of distress the soonest. Almost all the houses for sale are flippers.

Turnover in Mar Vista is striking. Its inventory level is similar to Santa Monica, but it has many more new listings and listings gone in a week.

How are you identifying flipper listings? (I'm newer to Mar Vista listings. For a new Santa Monica listing I have my own history to check, so my DOM is from original listing date.)
