Downward pressure on home prices occurs when the ratio dips below the 12% mark for a sustained period, while upward pressure occurs when it surpasses 20% over several months.

Westside supply peaked in June and demand is down since the peak March so prices have softened, however unique & sharply priced homes are still receiving multiple offers with prices over the ask.

There remains a high level of optimism regarding real estate but the westside remains under supplied and current prices are good value.
