San Pedro Real Estate Market Update
Market Report for the Month of March 2019
The below will provide market data, obtained from the California Regional Multiple Listings Service, in order to further understand the trends of our current Real Estate Market in San Pedro and the South Bay Community. Data obtained and detailed in this blog is intended to be reliable, but is not guaranteed to be so.
There are 3 ways the data is compiled; first as an area as a whole, which includes the following criteria: Eastview, South Shores, Palisades, Point Fermin, Vista Del Oro, Plaza, Miraleste Pines, Holy Trinity, and San Pedro – North.
Following the total grouping of areas, they are then broken down into groups of three, in order to provide workable averages and medians that maintain some significance. Lastly, the areas will have averages and medians individually, in certain situations and areas we must be aware of outliers due to small number of individual sales and statistical data.
At the end of this post will be a visual breakdown of all statistics and data compiled for the month of February.
Total Area Data
Circling back to my last update, I noted that I was gathering the data in a way that allowed me to be more specific, which would help me provide you as a reader a more accurate representation of how the real estate market performed. Because of these changes, I was not able to give a comparison between the two previous months; now it has now been long enough to compare March and February to one another! Be on the look out for the percent change between categories and as well in the Spreadsheet at the end of the blog!
