FULL-STEAM, AHEAD!

“We’ve seen real estate activity at a consistent level all year long,” said Mike Hughes, Vice President and General Manager of Downing-Frye Realty. “As soon as one property is being listed another is being sold. After an unusual year, the reluctance to move forward that many buyers as well as sellers were having is dissipating, and we are seeing good activity in the local market. Part of this is fueled by the number of new communities being built, which is helping to sate the desire for new construction, and part is the new perspective gained post-election. In any event, Downing-Frye is poised for a solid finish to 2016 and a busy start for 2017.”

BONITA: MORE CHOICES

October saw tight inventory with 756 single family homes and 777 condominiums on the market. Estero is seeing the most inventory shortages, specifically in the $3-500K price point. However, as both markets move into the winter selling season, listings are increasing. “Now that the election is over, we are seeing a notable increase in listings,” stated Jerry Murphy, Managing Broker, Downing-Frye. “Buyers are feeling more at ease and ready, and attending more open houses.”

The number of overall closed sales, including single-family homes and condos, for the 12 months ending October 2016 was 2,798 units as compared to 3,263 units for the 12 months ending October 2015, a 14 percent decrease. Pending sales for October 2016 were at a 15 percent decrease with 2,702 units versus 3,193 units compared to October 2015. The days-on-market was 95 days, which was an increase of 56 percent from 61 days in October 2015. As of November 1, 2016, there were 1,533 units of inventory for single family homes and condominiums, and the current months of inventory stands at four months.

FLORIDA: MEDIAN PRICES STILL RISING Florida’s housing market reported higher median prices and fewer all-cash sales in October. Home sellers continued to get more of their original asking price at the closing table in October: Sellers of existing single-family homes received 96.1 percent (median percentage) of their original listing price, while those selling townhouse-condo properties received 94.8 percent (median percentage). The statewide median sales price for single-family existing homes was $220,000, up 11.7 percent from the previous year. Inventory dipped to a 4.2-months’ supply in October for single-family homes and was at a 5.9-months’ supply for townhouse-condo properties.

USA: OCTOBER SALES UP

Existing-home sales ascended in October for the second straight month and eclipsed June’s cyclical sales peak to become the highest annualized pace in nearly a decade.

“The ramp-up in housing starts in October is a hopeful sign that overall supply can steadily increase enough to provide more choices for buyers and also moderate price growth,” said Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist. “A prolonged continuation of the robust single-family starts pace seen last month (869,000) would go a long way in giving homeowners much-needed assurance that they can list their home for sale and find a new home to buy within a reasonable time-frame. As a result of the anticipated economic stimulus in early 2017, mortgage rates post-election have now surged to around 4 percent as investors expect a strengthening economy and higher inflation.”
