May 2016 Metrics   

Overview:
  • Orange County’s median home price as of March 2016 was $625,000, an increase of $15,000 compared to February 2016 and an increase of $40,000 compared to March 2015 home prices. The housing market, especially in Orange County, is being watched closely considering the large fluctuations recently experienced in home prices as well as due to both domestic and international economic concerns. While the housing market continues to display strength, a rise in interest rates from the Fed, continued struggles by younger generations to accumulate their savings and preponderance for younger generals to favor rentals could negatively impact the housing market going into 2016.
  • The Orange County average rental rate in April 2016 increased to $1,920 – an increase of $29 compared to the previous April and an increase of $381 compared to the previous month. On a per-city basis, Anaheim had the highest year-over-year growth ($662) while Santa Ana and Irvine saw large declines of $732 and $375 year-over-year, respectively. On a month-to-month basis, the average apartment rent increased in Anaheim increasing by $591, reaching a total of $2,210 per month as of April 2016. Irvine also saw an increase in rents month-over-month, growing by $102.
