A total of 16,884 new and resale houses and condos sold in Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego, Ventura, San Bernardino and Orange counties in November. That was up 0.3 %from 16,829 in October and up 4.2 %from 16,208 in November 2010, according to San Diego-based DataQuick.
While November sales of existing (not new) houses and condos combined rose 5.8% from a year earlier, sales of newly built homes fell 15.2% to the lowest level on record for a November.
“‘Tis still the season to go bargain hunting — or at least that’s what the November home sales data suggest. The portion of homes sold to investors continued to hover near an all-time high. Lower prices and amazingly low mortgage rates tempted those with the confidence to buy and the ability to qualify for a loan, or to pay cash,” said John Walsh, DataQuick president.
