New, 31 comments

The market is finally affecting the rich, according to the Los Angeles Times, which notes that median sale prices fell by 13 percent in Beverly Hills in April, compared to a year ago. Rancho Palos Verdes dropped 18 percent and a part of Newport Beach's dropped 34 percent. The paper also talks to Simon Lee, a house hunter who says he sees the "same people" every weekend at Westside open houses. Lee believes that prices in Bel-Air, Pacific Palisades and Brentwood need to drop "25% or 30%." Related: San Francisco's luxury market may be holding up better than ours. [LA Times]
