Q1: Good But Not Great

unnamed

“The market in the first quarter was good but not great,” said Mike Hughes, Vice President and General Manager of Downing-Frye Realty. “There may be an election cloud affecting consumer confidence right now. This, among other influences like the fluctuating stock market, the Canadian exchange rate, and the shortage of low-end inventory are all factors creating headwinds in this market. Comparing this year to last year is a bit unfair since we raised the bar pretty high last year. The reality is that we are having a more normal season for pending sales, while our listing inventory continues to be strong.”

Florida’s housing market reported increased new listings, rising median prices and fewer all-cash closed sales in February. Closed sales of single-family homes statewide totaled 18,159, remaining relatively the same (up 0.4 percent) as the February 2015 figure. The statewide median sales price for single-family existing homes last month was $200,000, up 11.1 percent from the previous year. The statewide median price for townhouse-condo properties in February was $150,000, up 5.6 percent over the year-ago figure. February marked 51 consecutive months that statewide median sales prices for both single-family homes and for townhouse-condo properties rose year-over-year. Inventory was at a 4.5-months’ supply in February for single-family homes and at a 6.3-months’ supply for townhouse-condo properties.

Pending home sales rose solidly in February to their highest level in seven months and remain higher than a year ago. Lawrence Yun, NAR’s chief economist, said, “Looking ahead, the key for sustained momentum and more sales than last spring is a continuous stream of new listings quickly replacing what’s being scooped up by a growing pool of buyers. Without adequate supply, sales will likely plateau.” Existing-homes sales this year are forecast to be around 5.38 million, an
increase of 2.4 percent from 2015. The national median existing-home price for all of this year is expected to increase between 4 and 5 percent. (In 2015, existing-home sales increased 6.3 percent and prices rose 6.8 percent.)
