Tracking L.A. County listing prices

Housing Tracker reports that as of Feb. 23 the median listing price in Los Angeles County was $369,000 -- the same level as last month and down 21.9% from a year ago. That’s a far cry from the April 2006 asking price of $579,666.

Although that’s the highest median asking price they have listed for now, there’s no way to tell if that was the bubble peak. A note titled ‘to do’ on the site indicates that they’ll be extending the data back to August 2005 at some point.

The inventory of for-sale homes continued to drop, falling 22.5% year over year to 37,418 -- down 1.1% from the previous month.

Here’s the weekly tracking:
