L.A. and O.C. Home Prices Jump 6.1% While Downtown Los Angeles Home Prices Jump 8.2%

200-n-san-fernando-rd-105-028_320x240eThe Los Angeles times reports that home prices in Los Angeles and Orange counties posted strong gains in July, rising 6.1% from a year earlier.  That was larger than the 4.7% increase seen nationally, the Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller index showed. Compared with June’s figures, prices inched up 0.4% in the L.A. area. Downtown prices of course outperformed the rest of Los Angeles County, Orange County and nationwide.

National figures are not as bright. Sales of nationwide previously owned homes dropped 4.8% in August from a month earlier.
