An Unpredictable First Three Months of 2020
It would be impossible to fully describe the first three months of 2020, and yet, if I had to choose one word it would most likely be “unprecedented”. From the loss of Kobe Bryant to Coronavirus, the first 90 days of the year has definitely walloped a big punch to us all. In spite of it all and to the surprise of many, the LA housing market has continued to chug along, although more slowly. With the spring buying season officially underway, let’s look at what the Inglewood Housing Market Data for Q1 2020 reveals. For the first 3 months of 2020, there were 33 homes that came onto the market and 44 that closed escrow. Here are the year over year numbers:

What The Data Is Saying
If the Inglewood Housing Market Data for Q1 2020 is any indicator as to what the rest of 2020 will look like, it will be another year of low inventory with about 200 homes sales for the year and below-average turnover for Inglewood as a city. This along with the recent drop in interest rates, should keep prices stable and demand high for now. Having said that, given the current climate of Cocvid-19 and the looming uncertainty of the economy, jobs, and the pandemic itself, the housing market could be susceptible to change in the months ahead.
