Home prices are up, sales are down in Riverside County


Last updated 12/7/2018 at 2am

Home prices rose 6.1 percent in Riverside County in October, compared to the same month a year ago, while home sales dipped, a real estate information service announced recently.

According to CoreLogic, the median price of a Riverside County home was $380,000 last month, up from $358,000 in October 2017. A total of 3,343 homes were sold in the county, down 3.2 percent from 3,453 during the same month the previous year.

A total of 19,193 new and resale houses and condos changed hands in Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego, Ventura, San Bernardino and Orange counties last month, according to CoreLogic. That number was up 10.3 percent from 17,394 in September, and down 7.5 percent from 20,752 in October 2017.

The median price of a Southern California home was $525,000 in October, up 0.3 percent from $523,500 in September and up 6.1 percent from $495,000 in October 2017.

“The almost 8 percent annual decline in October home sales was less than half as steep as the prior month’s drop,” Andrew LePage, research analyst with CoreLogic, said. “But it continued a slowing trend that began during the heart of this year's spring-summer homebuying season. Rising prices and mortgage rates have priced out some potential buyers while causing others to conclude that waiting to buy could pay off, especially as listings rise.”
