San Marino: Demand Continues to Outstrip Supply

San Marino real estate market with its affluent home buyers is suffering from the same lack of home inventory as Pasadena.  There was 50% less homes available for sale this July compared to last year.  And, the price per square foot increased 10.4% while an average price that home buyers need to pay went from $1,630,000 to $2,003,000.
