We'll email you our quarterly South Bay Real Estate Report.

It has been a wild year. And, the same can be said for South Bay real estate too. For this post, I am going to share some numbers and anecdotal thoughts on what is happening right now in the South Bay marketplace. The market seems to be shifting every month and we might experience more movement as we go from the third to fourth quarters.

That said, I still believe it is a beneficial read for those interested in broadening their knowledge on California housing laws and new rules. First and foremost, this is a confusing time for all business owners and customers alike to comply with new laws surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic. It is no different for landlords, tenants, and even now, some casual property owners (and renters) that may not know they are affected. There are tenants struggling due
