Average sold price:

  • 69 Newport Beach homes sold during May 2010, with average sold price of $1,393,000, and those sold homes had 116 average days on the market.   

High End Market:

  • The high end market of homes for sale at Newport Beach more than average sold price is slow with lots of market time, and owners need to be patient to find the right buyers during this challenging market.


NB market activity

125 Newport Beach homes are now in pending purchase contract situation.  With more homes in pending contract situation than sold the last 30 days, the trend shows good buyer activity.

Newport Beach sellers who list their homes for sale correctly relative to market demand, and especially if they have a home in the range under $1.3M, can expect to sell the home at average market time about 3 months.  This favors sellers.  The higher the Newport Beach home listing price, the market is slower and favors buyers.
