The LA real Estate market continues to grow & thrive


However, based on current trends and projections, the real estate market in Los Angeles is expected to continue to grow and thrive in June 2023. The city’s strong economy, diverse population, and desirable location make it a popular destination for both domestic and international buyers.​​​​​​​Additionally, the ongoing development of new housing projects and infrastructure improvements is likely to further boost the market. Overall, success in real estate in Los Angeles in May 2023 will depend on factors such as market knowledge, networking skills, and the ability to adapt to changing market conditions.

LA’s luxury home market shows slow recovery in May 
“During May, the scarcity of luxury home sales in Los Angeles continued for a second straight month with a slight improvement.

From May 1 to May 30, the City of Los Angeles recorded 10 sales with prices above $5 million. About 17 homes in that price range went under contract in Los Angeles in the month, according to research by Amalfi Estates agency in Pacific Palisades. 

In April, following implementation of the city’s Measure ULA transfer tax on real estate deals, only two sales above $5 million took place. By comparison, for the past two years, on average, 50 deals over $5 million closed each month, said Anthony Marguleas, founder of Amalfi Estates.

“It’s not the 50 transactions we are used to seeing,” Marguleas said of the L.A. market. “But we are moving in the right direction, even with the Writers Guild strike, concern over the debt ceiling and recent bank closings.”

But some residents, many who have been given four months notice to leave the 61-year-old complex, say they’ll fight to stay. Others, who are at least 62 or disabled, have up to one year to get out.
