Big Bear Area Market Condition Report March 2013

Median price has increased at an average rate of $889 ( .57%) per month over the last 13 months. The rate of increase in median price (see graph) is increasing significantly in the short run. The market is tightening in terms of demand and supply (absorption and supply/demand ratio in decline).

Supply Given Demand is the Absorption Rate (the number of weeks required to exhaust supply given demand) measured in time. High rates signal excess units of supply relative to demand. Low rates signal the opposite. The Ratio of Supply to Demand measures the number of units of supply relative to the number of closings per month (demand) measured in units. All other things being equal,the smaller this number,the tighter the area market. Green formatting signals relatively tight markets in the area segment. Red formatting flags those areas where supply is too high relative to the current level of demand. This over supply is usually resolved by price adjustment.
