Inventory is moving in Palm Beach County!  While it’s still not a balanced market, there is a lot of great news for homes in all pricepoint categories. Things are definitely moving in the right direction!

Among the notable figures:

  • Total dollar volume of all sales was up!
  • Median time to contract is down!  Buyers are making decisions faster and hopefully everyone is getting more realistic about their asking prices… and/or negotiating to achieve a win/win solution for the buyer and seller in any given transaction.
  • Median time to sale is down!  Deals are getting closed faster – this is great news for all parties involved.
  • The number of pending sales are down showing that inventory is finally starting to move once again!

The market for homes in the $300,000-$399,000 price range still remains a “seller’s market” – down from 5 months of inventory to 4 months of inventory.  Regular readers of this commentary will remember that anything under 6 months is a considered a Seller’s Market.

The figures for the $600,000-$999,999 range went down from 14 months of inventory to 10 months.  While still a “buyer’s market,” if the trend continues we may very well see a balanced market next month in this price range!  (Six to 9 months indicates a balanced market.)

The market for $1,000,000+ homes remains a very strong “buyer’s market” at 22 months of inventory – but the good news is that this number is down from November, when as you remember, there was 24 months of inventory – so we are heading the right direction.
