CoreLogic: Southern California Home Sales Down by Nearly 25% Year Over Year in June

The region’s median sales price was down by less than 1% on an annual basis, though some counties saw slight gains

IRVINE, Calif.--()--CoreLogic®, a leading global property information, analytics and data-enabled solutions provider, released its monthly Southern California home sales report for June 2023. The report includes data for new and resale single-family homes and resale condominiums from six counties in the region: Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego and Ventura.

“While an exceptionally low inventory of homes is constraining sales activity in Southern California, it is also fostering a competitive environment for prospective buyers and again driving price growth,” said Selma Hepp, chief economist for CoreLogic. “After four months of increases, home prices are now about 5% higher in Southern California’s coastal areas than they were before they bottomed out in the early months of 2023.”

“Unfortunately,” Hepp continued, “the Inland Empire, which has historically benefitted from relative affordability, is now contending with challenges created by home price surges over the last couple of years and more recent mortgage rate increases, both of which are holding back sales volume and price gains in that region. Looking forward, upward pressure on home prices is likely to continue, as there is no indication of an inventory boost. As a result, appreciation in Southern California is projected to remain elevated, with annual home price gains registering around 6% to 8% by the summer of 2024.”

Key Takeaways:

  • Southern California’s median home sales price was $730,000 in June, down by -0.7% year over year.
