Silver Lake | Echo Park Housing Market Report 1st Quarter 2012

By
Real Estate Agent with Power Brokers Int'l BRE# 01439865

Let’s compare the Silver Lake and Echo Park real estate market in the 1st Quarter 2012 against the same period last year.  At present it is difficult to accurately split the two markets as the MLS combines them.  However, I hope soon to be able to do that since Echo Park and Silver Lake are two distinctly different communities.

Echo Park

The numbers are taken from the MLS/CLAW and are deemed reliable but not guaranteed.  Also, they reflect single family home sales only.

Number Sold:  69, a 32.69% increase over the same period last year.

Median Price:  $520,000, a 5.7% increase over the same period last year.

With the 70 active listings and and average of 23 homes sold per month, the number of months it will take to sell the existing inventory (absorption rate) will be 3.04.  A stable market is 6 months worth of inventory and anything below that is a sellers’ market.  Silver Lake and Echo Park home sellers should be seriously considering putting their homes on the market.

Buyers are out there, mortgage rates are low, inventory is low.  The perfect storm.

Kathy,  thank you.  Echo Park is becoming the new Silver Lake followed by Highland Park becoming the new Echo Park, and so on....

Jane,  it is.  But it is a great area so I am no surprised.

Jane, that is a most impressive report for the Echo Park/Silver Lake area compared to last year.  Sales up over 30% from last year and a current supply of THREE months inventory, I'd say your buyers better get in right now before prices go up further!
