Median Prices Stay Rock Solid in Tequesta Spring is in the air, our streets here in paradise are less crowded and a seat at The Food Shack on Friday night is easier to find. All is well and the real estate market continues to thrive in south Florida. Finding well priced properties, especially single family homes in good shape, remains a struggle and seeing multiple Realtors with their clients in tow within hours of a new listing hitting the market is a typical sight.   While inventory levels remain lower than those we have been spoiled by over the past few years we are seeing some renewed listing activity over the past week or so. While we are still about a week away from our detailed look at inventory levels I expect them to have remained relatively unchanged. With interest rates setti...

Tequesta Inventory Levels Decline 3% in MarchAnother month has passed and many of our northern visitors have packed their bags and headed north for the summer. The local real estate markets continue to show marked improvement with the number of contracts executed to purchase homes remaining strong. Investors continue to drive the bottom end of the market and their numbers seem to multiply on a daily basis. Anyone who works with investors will attest how aggressive their clients need to be to successfully land one of the foreclosures that continue to hit the market. Other segments remain red hot as well with well priced single family homes under the $400,000 threshold in good condition remaining a very hot commodity. In a normal market this would be a sign of higher prices ahead but then...

Tequesta Absorption Rates Look Very Positive As we pass the midway point of tearing another sheet off the 2012 calendar we are heading straight into the spring buying season here in Southern Florida. The current metrics surrounding the continued improvement we have seen for well over a year are as interesting as ever; foreclosures remain lower than expected, interest rates have made a move to the upside and finding well priced properties is many segments remains a difficult task.   Monthly we take a look in this column at the absorption rates in 5 communities and the trend of that metric is a very important sign as to the current strength of sales when compared to current inventory. The lower the absorption rate the stronger the market favoring sellers and the higher it goes shows the m...

Tequesta February Sales Disappointing but Prices Remain SolidAs we “sprung forward” last weekend the nice sunny skies lasting later in the day are a perfect reminder that spring home buying season is upon us once again. For the first time in over 6 years we are in a position where interest rates are at historic low rates, housing inventories are at multi-year lows and many economists are finally calling the bottom of the great real estate bubble.    There is no doubt that the foundation for potential price increases is stronger than we have seen for a very long time. Indexes that track sales of previously owned homes continue to rise on a national level and again strengthens the potential for prices to once again be on the rise. As we all know, real estate is very local in nature so let...

Tequesta Home Inventory Increases 3% in FebruaryAs we get started with another month it is time to take a fresh look at housing inventory levels throughout the area to see what is happening to the number of homes buyers have to select from. Nothing dramatic from month ago levels with some municipalities showing slight increases and some showing slight decreases; nothing more than 3% in either direction. Overall, still up form the lowest levels around October but in most cases still well below the large inventories we have been dealing with for quite a few years. Seller’s certainly have less competition but the steady stream of foreclosures that have been with us remain a force to be reckoned with. One really needs to explore the inventory levels associated with each property when making...

Tequesta Absorption Rate Improves in February Month after month pending home sales are one metric we have watched closely to help us determine where sales may be heading in the upcoming months. With so many short sale transactions that sit as contingent for what seems an eternity and with some buyers having multiple contracts at the same time just hoping one of them comes through the validity of these numbers remains in question. We need to watch closely the homes that go under contract each month so we have decided to change from tracking pending home sales and start bring our readers the latest absorption rate in each community.   The absorption rate is perhaps the easiest way to understand the market conditions in any given area and we will now track this metric the middle of each mo...
