In summary, both condos and single family homes are selling more quickly than 2012 and at a higher price than in the previous two years.   Inventory  levels  are low and have stayed relatively flat for 2013. Based on actual closed sales so far this year,  the trend indicates there will be more condos sold this year than last and about the same number of single family homes.   Inventory is needed to support this trend.

What does this mean to you?  Prices are trending up.  People interested in buying should increase their search and identify a property before prices go higher.    Sellers can expect to get more than they would have last year at this time.    Of course, there is no crystal ball.  Mammoth Lakes has historically followed Orange County and San Diego by 6-8 months.  These areas are still in an upward cycle.   Will the upward trend continue?  Time will tell.  My advice, if you find something you love, then now is the time to make that offer.
