Prospective buyers in some parts of Southern California are finding little relief when it comes to home prices, new data suggests.
According to the California Association of Realtors, the average price of a single-family home statewide for October 2023 was $840,360, which represents a 0.4 percent decrease from September’s average price of $843,340.
Locally, buyers in Ventura County saw the biggest month-over-month price drop, with homes there selling for 6.6 percent less in October than in September.

Potential buyers in the Inland Empire were among those who saw average home prices jump last month; the average single-family home in San Bernardino County sold for $481,500 in October, marking an increase of more than $6,000 from September.
