March 2013 Monthly Market Detail Florida Townhouses and Condos

March 2013 Monthly Market Detail Florida Townhouses and Condos

Some very positive results reported by Florida Realtors for the March 2013 Monthly Market Detail Florida Townhouses and Condos for the entire state of Florida.  All indices have moved in a positive direction though not as robustly as for the single family report for March 2013.  Year to year closed sales were up by 1% and new sales under contract (new pending sales) increased by over 10%.

Both median and average sales prices were up (March 2012 to March 2013) by 16% and 13% respectively.

One item of concern is the active inventory which has decreased by almost 22%.  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 homeowners can see a profit or even a break-even price, I will expect a gradual increase in inventory.
