Housing Inventory Reaches New Annual High in Hobe Sound

After all the great news we passed your way last month about housing inventories continuing to drop across the market areas I service I could hardly wait to run the numbers when I finally got to the computer a couple days ago. Last month at this time we reported that Hobe Sound inventory levels dropped for the first time in four months. So what has happened since then……..

Well, I started off this month’s reports with the Tequesta market which had inventory levels remain steady and I thought I would let them bask in that glory overnight as the news is different in Hobe Sound For the fourth time in five months inventory levels increased again and are now at a new annual high. The net inventory of real estate currently for sale on our local Multiple Listing Service (MLS) in Hobe Sound now stands at 517 up 22 units from the January 1st level. Net inventory is defined as all of the property actively being marketed that does not have a contract outstanding either as a contingent or pending listing.
 
As we see inventory levels rise buyer’s have more choices and typically pricing pressure will be to the downside. Each home is different and has it’s own set of specific metrics that need to be explored when determining current market value. That being said, buyer’s have 22 more choices today than they did a month ago so it is a great time to take advantage of a great combination on inventory and interest rates.

After spending years among the top individual performers at one of Palm Beach County’s largest and most successful real estate brokerages, Tom Priester knew there was another way to do real estate. A better way. Real estate services focused on the customer. Like the old days when the customer truly was #1. He tired of listening to why he should be going out to have his customers sign one sided buyers’ brokerage agreements. He tired of hearing how he should be selling customers why paying higher commissions, like 7% and 8%, was to their benefit. He tired of hearing how he should sell his clients on why they should be paying hundreds of dollars in additional “transaction fees”. The business had slid way too far from being focused on the customer. His customer. So he decided the time was right to be different…..by design. To start his own unique boutique real estate firm truly focused on his customers. They will now have access to a process focused on them. Only the best marketing techniques to sell their homes. No cutting corners. Commission structures based on his clients needs not his. Paradise Sharks was born out of Tom’s passion to return this business to the customer. Where it belongs. If you want a real estate experience that benefits you, just give Tom a call at 561 308-0175 or send him an e-mail at tom@paradisesharks.com. You can always pay more and receive less but that just would not make any sense. Would it?
