Just in! Newly released market reports from Florida Realtors® detailing recent real estate activity in Palm Beach County. The reports compare year-over-year data for January. Here are statistics on single family homes.
“Over the last few months, I have been advising consumers that we are approaching a balanced market that favors neither buyer nor seller. January reports show that Palm Beach County has officially reached the benchmark for a balanced market with 5.6 months’ supply of inventory. This is a 9.8 percent year-over-year increase for single family homes,” said Jeffrey Levine, President of the Realtors® of the Palm Beaches and Greater Fort Lauderdale.
In January, we saw inventory cross the 5.5 months supply benchmark for a balanced market. Active listings increase 9.3 percent to 8,069, a significant increase from the 7,383 we saw in January of 2018.
“If you have been on the fence about listing your home, now is the time to do so,” continues Levine.
Year-over-year, median sale price is up 4.6 percent to $340,000. The median percentage of original list price received dropped slightly by 0.1 percent to 94.4 percent.
