Hot off the press, our first market climate map of Q2-2017 is finally here. This map, which focuses on single-family homes sales volume, is predominantly red – which means things were looking up for Q2-2017.

This was a successful quarter for the real estate industry; single-family home sales volume grew in 39 out of 51 areas, with 19 areas seeing a significant growth of over 30%. Below are are the top 5 performing areas:

1. Monterey Hills (5 more listings sold, 279% increase)

The biggest percentage improvement of this past quarter was Monterey Hills, going from 2 homes sold in Q2-2016 to 7 homes sold in Q2-2017. This area is mostly known for its condo & co-op sales, so it’s nice to see a sizable improvement in a different category.

2. Playa Vista (7 more listings sold, 223% increase)
