The Market

In Broward county the number of closed sales in March this year is down 10.5% from March 2017 for single family homes and down 8.9 for condo. 

The median sales price is up 5.9% for the same period for single family homes and 10.0% for condos.

The number of available home for sale has declined by 1.9% for single family homes and 4.7% for condos from March 2017 to March 2018. So with prices rising the reason for the decline in sales has to be a shrinking inventory.

Trends

Downsizing. I have had more calls from customers interested in downsizing so far this year, then probably the last 5 years combined. Folks want to get out of the big house they are in and into something more manageable.  It’s a tricky maneuver when there is a shortage of homes available. Depending on your strategy, you run the risk of being either homeless or owning two homes for a while. This could be the topic of my next blog article. It is also the sign of a healthy market.
