Diamond Bar home prices. They’re everyone’s favorite indicator, and the headlines focus almost exclusively on this one metric. But prices leave much to be desired. They tell nothing about the market’s balance – whether overly saturated or in a competitive bidding environment. Historically-low mortgage rates, rising rents and strong investor activity have helped nudge certain areas and segments into stable or even seller’s market territory. Prices are already rising in some cases but it’s far from universal. At first glance, April looked pretty good but there’s more to it than that.
