The All About Florida Homes Team of Keller Williams Realty has been busy all around from our Sellers and Buyers!
We could have told you the market had picked up before we even analyzed the market report from Florida Realtors. While the market is behind last year to date – we are finally starting to see traction and the market starting to play catch up.
If you have been reading our market reports monthly, you will have read (tirelessly I know) my rants about sellers’ and agents’ pricing on active versus sold comps. Homes can be listed for any amount but what they sell for, and how long it takes, and how many reductions do make a difference. We are seeing the market price where home sell – hence the movement in the market.
If you have a good marketing strategy, take pictures strategically to show the attributes of the home, land and community, market to the consumer as well as fellow agents – and analyze the showings, feedback and competition – homes will sell!
The market from $300,000 to $600,000 seems to bounce monthly from a balanced market to a slight buyer or seller market depending upon inventory. As we always say:
In a balanced market – where you come out of the gate (price, marketing et al) really, really matters. It is not a race to market – it has to be done right!
Homes in the $600,000 to $999,999 range remain in a balanced market this month so same rules apply as above.
The $1,000,000+ remains a buyers’ market – there is so much inventory and many are still overpriced. If you are a seller, it is worth a real analysis of where homes have sold and how you are being marketed – BUT you also need to be patient. There is a lot of competition, so ensure your home stands out and that you are priced right!
