September 2013 Monthly Market Detail St Lucie County Single Family Homes

The September 2013 Monthly Market Detail St Lucie County Single Family Homes as reported by Florida Realtors continues the positive trend that has been apparent all this year, though at a more moderate rate for the past few months.   Closed sales were up by 4.1%  (in August they were up by 3.5%)  and new sales under contract (new pending sales) increased by 12% (they were up by 17.8% last month).

Both median and average sales prices were up (year to year) by 14.2% and 15% respectively year to year. 

The inventory of active listings rose in September (from last month) to 1947 homes, still down by 24.1% from last year.  Current supply of inventory is only 4.5 months (a 33.6% decrease from last year) and unchanged from August.  For September 2013 this remains a strong sellers market in the St Lucie County area.  Lower inventory typically results 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.  Prices have been rising because of the shortage of inventory and the slow recovery of the market.September 2013 Market Detail for  Saint Lucie County Single Family

Positive reports for the September 2013 Monthly Market Detail Martin County Single Family Homes as reported by Florida Realtors.  Surprisingly strong results compared to many other areas of the state for September.   Closed sales were up by 58.5% (was 9.1% in August) and new sales under contract (new pending sales) increased by 24.1% (35.2% in August).

Both the median and average sales prices (year to year) increased this month by percentages of 35% and 21.9% respectively.

August 2013 Monthly Market Detail St Lucie County Single Family Homes

The August 2013 Monthly Market Detail St Lucie County Single Family Homes as reported by Florida Realtors continues the positive trend that has been apparent all this year, though at a more moderate rate for August.   Closed sales were up by 3.5%  (in July they were up by 4.3%)  and new sales under contract (new pending sales) increased by 17.8% (they were up by 55.6% last month).

Both median and average sales prices were up (year to year) by 12.7% and 9.2% respectively. 

The inventory of active listings declined in August to 1841 homes, down by 31.3% from last year.  Current supply of inventory is only 4.3 months (a 31.3% decrease from last year) and unchanged from July.  For August 2013 this remains a strong sellers market in the St Lucie County area.  Lower inventory typically results 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  expect to see continued increases in inventory.
