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.
