O.C. and California May Real Estate Market

An overview of the real estate market data from May 2015 suggests it is going to be a hot summer selling season in Orange County, California! We would challenge you to repeat the tongue-twister ‘hot summer selling season’ a few times but we know you are too busy in the field being a super-star REALTOR® right now (but by all means, if it’s inspirational, please do!)

The total homes sold in Orange County during May 2015 came to 2,163 which is a 3.5 percent increase compared to May 2014. According to CoreLogic, these homes had a median selling price of $668,000.
