We saw a very impressive jump in the number of home going into escrow with both month over month numbers increasing dramatically in 2020.  That seems to have changed quickly with the impacts of the Corona virus on the Lawndale housing market.  While that’s not great news for home sellers, it certainly will present opportunties for home buyers in the area.  Acoording to South Bay realtor and Lawndale specialist Keith Kyle, “it’s inevitable that the very hot market doesn’t slow down a bit as it becomes harder to get financing and buyers income situation’s become less clear”.

Take a look at the chart below to see the “active” listings each month along with pending sales (red line) and closed sales.  The pending sales went up both January and February by quite a bit, but March saw the beginnings of the impact.
