Martin County Florida Condo Market Report for July 2012

Martin County Florida Condo Market Report for July 2012

 

Commentary:

The Martin County Florida Condo Market for July 2012 is showing signs of improvement even though we are now in the typically slower summer season for condo sales.  Sales for July were a strong 57 units, which is the highest number of condo sales for a July since 2005.  The inventory continues to shrink, although at a slower rate.  I would not be surprised to see some inventory growth as we get into the upcoming  fall and winter condo season.   For the first time in five months, we’ve seen a drop in median sales prices.  Rather than a decrease in values, this is indicative of a greater number of lower priced condos in the mix of the completed sales.

The inventory is now down to 571 condos, down from the 652 condos that were on the market in July of 2011. The one month absorption rate is now at 10.02 months, while the three-month average is at 8.99 months.  While it remains a somewhat challenging market for condos in Martin County, there are some signs of life as prices across the board have declined significantly. We need to see a sustained absorption rate below 9 months for a healthy market and down to 6 or 7 months to be considered a balanced one.

With any change to a favorable consumer sentiment, I expect condo sales to pick up dramatically this coming season as nervous potential vacation home buyers will have the courage to step off the sidelines.

The Definition of Absorption Rate:
Number of months it takes to sell the current inventory at the present rate of sales. Knowing your area’s Absorption Rate, helps to track trends. Understanding the market and where it is headed is part of our job as real estate professionals. Absorption rate is NOT an exact science.

Martin County Florida Residential Market Report for July 2012

Martin County Florida Residential Market Report for July 2012

 

Commentary:

The Martin County Florida residential market report for July 2012 continues to show excellent results. The sales volume of 155 homes is 20 homes better than 2011 and 10 homes better than 2010, when those numbers were inflated by the governments first time buyers assistance programs.

Both average and median sales prices were up for July and are showing a slow but steady rise from previous months (on average).  Certain segments of this market are definitely increasing in value.  Whether this trend continues or not will be dependent on factors such as interest rates, inventory and distressed properties.

The inventory is now down to 1132 homes, down from the 1327 homes that were on the market in July of 2011 (and the 2804 homes in July of 2007). The one month absorption rate is now at 7.3 months, while the three-month average is down to 6.28 months.  These absorption rates signify a balanced market, favoring neither seller or buyer.

We are increasingly seeing buyers unable to find homes in their criteria with today’s low inventory levels.  Either they have to settle for something less than their requirements or move on to different areas or even postpone their home purchases.  For those thinking about selling their homes, this is the best time in many years.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any difficulty interpreting these charts.
