Homes have sold near asking price.  In June, the percentage was 101% sold to list price.

There were 92 listings for sale in January.  In December, listings for sale were down to 41 properties.  As the year went by, Altadena saw a decline in inventory similar to other areas such as Pasadena, La Canada, Glendale, San Marino, South Pasadena and San Gabriel.

Lack of inventory is definitely going to change the real estate climate.  If you are a homeowner who have been waiting to sell, or previously listed and did not sell, it’s time to list/re-list your home.  With the right pricing strategy and marketing, you could get top dollars for your home.  For home buyers, the market has turned around.  Buyers must be prepared to compete with multiple offers, have the financing (loan pre-approval) completed, and be ready to move quickly when new listings hit the market.
