“Los Angeles is showing clear signs of being a seller’s market,” noted Carrington Real Estate Services Local Office Leader Maria Zuniga. “Typically prices increase as inventory becomes hard to find, and homes that are available are selling much more quickly than they did last year at this time. For homeowners who have been waiting for the right time to sell, these are indicators that it might be a good time to consider testing the market.”
