Weekly inventory update

1/25 - Santa Santa Monica inventory <$3M is down 2% (but SM Total is up 5%), Pacific Palisades <$2M up 19% (also noted in recent comments), and Palms-Mar Vista flat for the week. In contrast, Santa Monica inventory was falling this time a year ago.

1/18 - Santa Santa Monica inventory <$3M is up 6%, Pacific Palisades <$2M up 8%, but Palms-Mar Vista down 5% (perhaps from old listings withdrawn) for the week.

I added back this week from a year ago (1/19/07). SM and PP inventories fell during January 2007, but have been rising so far this January. Year-ago-this-week all inventories were higher, except, strikingly, total PP inventory is much higher this year: 100 vs. 71, all in the higher-priced houses.

1/11 - The number of new or returned listings this week, despite losing a few that seem expired, resulted in Santa Santa Monica inventory <$3M up 12%, Pacific Palisades <$2M up 14%, and Palms-Mar Vista up 9%.
