A diamond-encrusted lining is emerging in Southern California's cloudy real estate market. At least a half-dozen Westside mega-estates have sold for more than $20 million so far this year — creating a deafening buzz in local realty circles. Only a few home sales in other Southland counties have surpassed the $20-million mark. On the horizon is the close of Candy Spelling's larger-than-White-House-sized "Manor," which has reigned supreme from its $150-million listing price perch in Holmby Hills for more than two years and is expected to eclipse last year's record $50-million Bel-Air sale by a wide margin.

Southern California home buyers have apparently had their fill of bidding wars, home shortages and double-digit price hikes. For the third straight month, the median home price across the Southland stayed essentially flat, at $382,000. The September data confirmed expert predictions that waning demand would throw a wet blanket over the white-hot market. The stall is owed to multiple factors: buyer fatigue over skyrocketing prices, higher mortgage rates, an expanding supply of homes and a pullback by investors who had swarmed the market.

A long-awaited luxury condominium tower developed by giant United Arab Emirates real estate company Emaar Properties has opened near the Los Angeles Country Club. Emaar Properties bought the 22-story Beverly West tower at Wilshire Boulevard and Comstock Avenue for $65 million in 2007 while it was under construction by a previous developer. The housing market crashed soon afterward in the economic downturn. Mohamed Alabbar, chairman of Emaar, kept the property off the market until earlier this year, said Dario De Luca, president of the company's Los Angeles operations.

A reported bounce in U.S. home sales Monday boosted hopes that the housing downturn was nearing its end and that the broader economy was moving toward recovery. The National Assn. of Realtors said its pending home sales index, which tracks signed contracts for home purchases nationwide, rose 3% in March over February's level, and was up 1% from the same month a year earlier. The news helped to push stocks up: The Dow Jones industrial average rose 214.33 points, or 2.6%, to 8,426.

Southern California's housing market stalled in September, with sales flat and the region's median price down compared with the same month last year, according to DataQuick, a San Diego real estate information firm. Sales of new and resale homes and condos increased 0.3% to 18,149 from the same month a year earlier, when the market was reeling from the effect of an expired tax credit that had boosted sales for much of the year. As is typical, sales fell from August to September, down 7.7%.
