2+1, 1032 sqft, SOLD on 7/14/16 for $983.5K, 5401 sqft LOT

1032 / 5401 = .191 (HF) Housing Factor
.191 x $983.5K = $187.9K (HV) Housing Value
$983.5K / 1032 = $182.1 / sqft (P / SQFToH)

1.0 - .191 = .809 (LF) Land Factor
.809 x $983.5K = $795.6K (LV) Land Value
$795.6K / 5401 = $147.3 (P / SQFToL)

.228 x $870K = $671.6K (LV)
$671.6K / 6229 = $107.8 / sqft (P /SQFToL)

I have said all along that, Venice would be hit the hardest in a housing downturn. Perhaps now, it is beginning.

Not good? I personally think it's great. LA's housing market has been extremely overinflated for a long time.

Market psychology has changed as well. Instead of housing being the super safe investment that always makes money and "OMG you have to buy now or be priced out forever" It has turned into a wait and see game. Nobody wants to buy an investment that doesn't make money, and people won't want to buy a house that has a good chance of losing money in the future. Again, nobody will be buying up the excess inventory, which leads to a continued decline in house prices.

Construction will continue to suffer due to the glut of houses, and homebuilders that could have weathered a 2 year downturn, will be unable to survive the lengthened decline.

Housing prices will not go up again until they are in line with historical, adjusted for inflation, averages. Houses need to be affordable with a 30 year fixed mortgage with a 10% down payment before they can go back up. And even when they start to go back up, they will most likely keep pace with inflation and wage increases. It will take a damn long time before we see housing values that match the peak.

If you bought a house thinking you 'could flip it' since this market is just 'money town' then you deserve it.

Built 1926, 2Br + 1 Ba, 1143 sqft, 5200 sqft lot
SOLD 02/15/08 for $855.5K ($748/sqft)

compared to:

2233 Glyndon 90291
Built 1920, 2Br + 1Ba, 1024 sqft, 5850 sqft lot
SOLD 9/21/07 for $950K ($928/sqft)

Quick way to lose 100K...
