Home Prices in Hobe Sound FL 33455 for March 2014   Hobe Sound Home Prices   Year over year, home prices in Hobe Sound are up as much as 25% in some neighborhoods and now may be a great time to think about selling if you've been waiting for home prices to rebound.   With that said, I don't expect home prices to increase that much this year. Although home prices continue to rise in Hobe Sound, they are not rising in the first few months of this year as much as last year as we came off the bottom of the market.  In many neighborhoods, listing agents and sellers got  a little to greedy with price increases and now are having to lower their asking prices to get showings.  While home prices in Hobe Sound have continued to increase, the rate has signigficantly slowed as we move toward a norma...

Absorption Rate in Hobe Sound Moves Higher by 26%   The period between Thanksgiving and New Years always seems to be a bit quieter than others during the year. Holiday celebrations, time spent with family and friends, goal setting for the new year and other reflections do take away from the normal routines of our every day lives. As we wind down the few remaining days of 2013 we want to thank each of you who has supported our efforts and we look forward to keeping you informed in the new year.   A year ago it was clear that a major shift in the local real estate market was underway and the recovery continues to this day. Sometime after the first of the year we will do a complete recap of this year and projections for next so for now let’s just say it has been a very good year. Looking j...

  October Home Sales in Hobe Sound Down Measurably by 41%    Our best wishes to all our friends and hope that you enjoyed a fabulous Thanksgiving with your friends, neighbors and family. It is the best time of the year to reflect on all that we have and give thanks for our many blessings. For our Jewish friends in the middle of Hanukkah we wish you a very special holiday.   There are so many factors that have an effect, either direct or non-direct, on the real estate market. The changes are at times lightning fast and like a NFL running back easily cutting in another direction. The industry has been the foundation which the overall economy has relied on over the past 18 months. But as we have reported here the market changed again about three months ago with sales stalling even as we sa...

  Home Inventory Level in Hobe Sound Down Slightly as of November 1st One week until we all hopefully take at least a couple days to spend with family and friends and give thanks for all we have been blessed with. Anyone who has owned real estate in south Florida is probably thankful as their property is in almost all cases worth more this year than it was in 2012.    In our last articles published back on November 10th we reported that absorption rates throughout the north county region had increased again mainly do to sales levels that continued to fall. While we are a few days away from reporting final October sales numbers it is looking like we have had a very nice rebound with sales once again picking up. The number of homes under contract in Hobe Sound and the surrounding municipa...
