Question asked 2008. Short sale and reos were plentiful. In West Los Angeles CA there has been a shift standard sales are the majority. Getting back to your question listings state if property is a standard, reo or short sale. There are still a few short sales and reo sales available. Do not overlook the standard sales the asking prices maybe competitive.
