Market Update - July 2018

Greetings, Neighbors!


We hope you had a safe and happy 4th of July! Although it was a bit of a soggy holiday, this time of year marks the time when we look at the first half of 2018 in the Southwest Florida real estate market.   The numbers below reflect the Multiple Listing Service, which covers from Marco Island to Cape Coral.


YTD Sales (closings) vs. Last Year


2017- 17,035


2018- 17,600

Total Sales Volume

2018- $7,571,444,502


+$732,608,144




 


As we can see by the numbers, the overall market this first half has been steady, which indicates a stable market.  (Please note some price points and areas are selling much faster than others, click here to view the absorption rates.  6 months of supply = normal market; less than 6 months = sellers’ market; more than 6 months is considered a buyers’ market).  Sales and days to sell were also steady versus prior year, but we did see some variance for Active listings.  However, that variance did not cause the total sales volume to be affected, as the total sales volume was higher than this time in 2017.   Additionally, the average sales price also saw an increase by almost $30,000. *   Also, while we did see some minor residual effect from Hurricane Irma early in 2018, overall, it did not affect sales.  With inventory, we also observed an uptick in new listings for the first half as well, despite a lower active listing volume in dollars. Despite the overpriced listings that were in the market during this time, total sales volume was not affected, as many homeowners realized that pricing to market value would be the only way to generate activity, and ultimately an offer.
