Past Sales for Newport Beach…Calculating the Numbers

As we take a look at past sales and home prices for the Newport Beach area, we can see that the prices fall well above that of the national average. With a median home price of $1,850,000 in the 92662 part of Newport Beach, one would think that this exclusive section of the O.C. is not feeling the crunch of the real estate make. Well such is not that case, these prices are actually down 12.40% according to www.dqnews.com. Since January of 2007, 14 homes… yes that is 14 my friends, have sold in this area code, a significant drop of 51.70% from this same time last year. These staggering numbers certainly let you know that Newport Beach is not immune to what the rest of the country is going through.
