The inventory of available townhouses and condos have decreased to 967 units which id down by 22% from last March.  Current supply of inventory is only 9.6 months (a 38.9% decrease from last year).   While these results are not quite as strong as in the single family market, they still show strong gains from previous years.  It is just a matter of time before prices start rising a bit more dramatically.  This current environment is an excellent opportunity for buyers looking into the Saint Lucie County real estate market for townhouses and condos.St. Lucie County Townhouses and Condos

March 2013 Monthly Market Detail St. Lucie County Single Family Homes

March 2013 Monthly Market Detail St. Lucie County Single Family Homes

Some very positive results reported by Florida Realtors for the March 2013 Monthly Market Detail St. Lucie County Single Family Homes.   Year to year closed sales were up by 11.8% and new sales under contract (new pending sales) increased by over 69%!!

Both median and average sales prices were up (march 2012 to March 2013) by 18% and 15% respectively. 

One item of concern is the active inventory which has decreased by almost half (47%).  Current supply of inventory is only 4.2 months (a 56% decrease from last year).  For March 2013 it was a strong sellers market in the St. Lucie County area.  The reduced inventory will eventually result in lower sales volume as there just isn’t enough homes available for sale.  This will also result in strong upward pressure on prices and at some point renewed activity in new construction.  If prices rise to a level where currently underwater home owners can see a profit or even a break even price, I will expect a gradual increase in inventory.
