  • In the last 12 months, Orange County’s sale price has increased by an average of 2.1 percent, the lowest in the entire southern California region. In Los Angeles, it increased by an average of 3.3 percent, 2.4 percent for San Diego, 4.1 percent for Riverside and 4.5 percent for San Bernardino. 
  • Markets within Orange County that still show below average sale prices are Santa Ana, and Anaheim and surrounding areas. They are also the county’s most dense areas where demand for housing is especially high. 
  • Median home sale prices are still at an all time high but appreciation in the Orange County market is slowing since the start of 2019. Still, economists are taking this as a good sign for the local economy as price growth is stabilizing before they can contribute to any recession, like our last one in which 12-month sale appreciation reached 31 percent in the county.
