Long Beach Housing Prices May 2021 to Your Advantage
I like to look at the average pricing city wide and then break it down by zip code and neighborhood. This method gives me, as a real estate agent, insights into the trends of an area. Which I pass unto my clients.
Comparing May 2021 to May 2020 for Long Beach Homes
Let’s compare the housing market from May 2020 vs May 2021 to see what prices are doing here in the city. The chart below we are going to look below includes the median home price verse the average single family home prices.
The average selling price in May 2021 for Long Beach homes is $899,132. That is up 16.10% over 2020.
What is the Difference between Average Prices and Median Prices?
As a Long Beach real estate agent, I like like the average prices. This is because appraisers typically average recent sales within the past 90 days to determine a value for a property for a lender to loan money on.
When I represent a homebuyer, seller or real estate investors, I like to share house values based on average pricing.
But some people like to know what the median price is. So, I listed it below in the summary of housing prices chart below.
|Long Beach Homes||2021||2020||Change|
|Average Selling Price||$899,132||$774,461||+16.10%|
|Median Selling Price||$825,000||$690,000||+19.60%|
Some real estate portals like Realtor.com, Trulia, Zillow and Redfin, will use the median price. Keep that in mind if you go to them when searching for a home.
How Many Days is it Taking to Sell Long Beach Homes Citywide?
I like this statistic because it gives me more insights into how hot, cold or stable a real estate area is.
From the day it is listed for sale, the clock starts ticking away. The current average time of market, also known as “days on market” for Long Beach homes is 19 days. That is down from 28 days on the market in May 2020.
Houses are selling fast. Yes they are…
List to Sale Ratio: The Percentage of the Listed Price that Properties Sell for
This is one of my favorite real estate statistics because it tells you and me if we are in a seller’s market or buyer’s market. 100% represents a full price offer.
If the chart shows 98%, then you know that sellers citywide are taking less than a full price offer. If the properties are selling for 102.80%, then expect to pay over the listed price.

Why are the Real Estate Prices on the Rise in Long Beach?
It’s all about supply and demand. Since there is low interest rates are low for a fixed rate at 2.5% to 2.75%, home owners are staying in the properties longer.
When I started real estate as an agent, interest rates where at 14%.
When will housing prices go down in Long Beach?
I wish I knew. I like a normal real estate market. Our current economy has a lot to do with interests and home pricing. If the current economic policies involve more spending than trying to stabilize that, a downturn in pricing may happen.
It is really hard to forecast when. Right now, I’m seeing multiple offers on houses and condos throughout the city.
