LA’s Luxury Market Update January 2024

Measure ULA certainly influenced sales volume of properties over $5 million in the city of Los Angeles since it took effect April 1, 2023. Looking at closed sales in January 2023 relative to the prior year is a bit distorted because there was a mad dash to sell properties ahead of the new luxury property transfer tax.


It is important to note that measure ULA does not affect neighborhoods such as Malibu, Beverly Hills, or Santa Monica because each are outside the City of LA. It seems rational that we see more transactions in the areas with a lower tax consequence.
