The 34994 ZIP code area of Stuart did a bit better than last month though 1 less home actually closed (sold) as opposed to December.  The good news is that the inventory went back down a little and pending home sales are up, indicating more activity and sales for the near future.  Comparing the activity to January of 2011 when there were 111 active listings with 42 pending sales and 6 closed sales, we’re still not seeing as robust activity as we would like.  These numbers are very similar to last year although we do have reduced inventory.

With the lower number of homes on the market this year, it will be interesting to see what happens as we continue in the height of the season these months.

After a fairly good December of 2011, January was pretty tepid for the Sewalls Point housing market.   We only had three sales in January as opposed to 5 in December, two of these sales were in the middle price ranges for Sewalls Point above $450,000 (sales price).  Inventory remains quite high for Sewalls Point.  On a brighter note, pending sales were up to 11 an increase of 3 from last month.

Comparing the results to January of 2011, the inventory is down from 65 homes, pending sales were 9 last year and 2 homes sold. Other than a lower inventory, the numbers are almost identical from a year ago.

The Hobe Sound condo market (Zip Code 33455) is a very small segment of both Hobe Sound real estate as well as the smallest condo market on the Treasure Coast.  December did show good results though and this segment departed from the rest of Martin County by positive numbers in a decreased inventory and 5 sales when there were none in November. Compared to last year, where there were 40 listings, 3 pending sales and 5 closed sale, the market has not changed much for Hobe Sound.

Hopefully we’ll see some improvement in sales in the coming months, but as long as the inventory stays this small, we just don’t see any appreciable rise in numbers. Most of this product is in the lower price ranges and this is where we expect to see activity.

 Along with most of Martin County, the Hobe Sound real estate market (ZIP Code 33455) had increasing inventory and decreasing pending sales from last month. Closed sales were the bright note, as 28 homes were sold in December, an increase of 13 homes from November.
Comparing to last December, we had 374 active listings, 47 pending sales and 28 closed sales.  Closed sales were equal to last year, with about 10% less active inventory and pending sales were lower as well.

Provided we don’t see a drastic increase in distressed properties (short sales and bank owned foreclosures), we should be in line for a good performance from the Hobe Sound real estate market in 2012.

The 34990 zip code area of Palm City condo market is a fairly small section of this area as most property in Palm City is either single family homes or town homes. With only 65 currently active listings, it is not a very large market.  Last year at this time there were 78 active listings, and the market was more active with 5 pending sales and 6 closed sales as compared to this years anemic 3 and 1 respectively. The condo market overall remains significantly more sluggish as compared to the single family residential market.
Speculating on the reasons for this could be the current low prices of single family units. The difficulty of obtaining financing for condos in this lending environment and the nervousness regarding the economy and future being felt by the more senior set that tend to go for the condo type of housing. Condo sales tend to be more active after the holidays and we will hopefully see an increase in activity following the holiday season.
