For Sale vs. Sold

One of the first numbers to look at when analyzing the market is the latest For Sale and Sold numbers.  These give you an indication of what the absorption rate is, which in turn gives an idea of how buyers are behaving within the current market conditions.  27 homes sold in July and 29 homes were listed.  For home sellers and potential sellers it is a trend to watch since more homes came to market than sold.  Generally, this is the early sign of a slowing absorption rate and increasing inventory.  However, given the amount of people that leave town during the month of August it is not surprising to see a slow month.

Based on closed sales at the end of the 12 month period between July 2016 and the end of July 2016, there are 5 months of supply of homes in Palmetto Bay.  The absorption rate for the month of July 2017 is 5 months of supply.  Slightly higher than the prior month but still within the seller’s market.  [Remember, within every market there are segments that have greater or less supply than others].
