While Amazon's choice of location for its second headquarters will positively impact the economy of any city they choose, it also brings about the question - what's going to happen to the already tight housing market in Southern California if they choose LA?
With the lowest levels of inventory the area has seen in some time, it's slim picking for buyers. With a surge in population growth with Amazon employees, not to mention the relocation of several NFL teams like the Chargers who planted their feet in Costa Mesa, it's a wonder what would happen next.
Economist Christopher Thornberg said that leaders in LA county are panicked. Plopping 50,000 tech employees in the middle of this housing crisis isn't exactly going to alleviate the situation. Though it may lead to more building, plans for new development and additional construction are not enough to offset the demand.
California Association of Realtors report showed that the state's supply of homes has hit its lowest point in 13 years! We're already one million housing units below demand and, with the imminent changes bringing more people to this beloved state, it's expected that deficit could grow to 2 million in just the next 8 years. As a result, this constrained supply is driving up prices to new highs.

"Liz is great!! Knowledgeable, reliable, ethical, organized and punctual - she is the best!
We just closed on a home that we love in Nellie Gail and we couldn’t be happier! We wouldn’t have been able to do it without Liz and the Kurt Real Estate Group making themselves available to us, helping show us so many properties, returning calls, returning texts and teaching us so many things we wouldn’t have even known in terms of location and red flags in different homes! With all of the unreliable and dishonest agents out there, I can say with confidence that it’d be a mistake not to choose Liz and the Kurt Real Estate Group for any of your real estate needs. They make the whole process so easy and they take pride in everything that they do. They will be our first call when the need arises again!
Thank you, Liz and the Kurt Real Estate Group! You are second to none!
