Another Record High for Juno Beach Pending Home Sales

Last month at this time I was so pleased to report how every one of my main market areas in north Palm Beach County reported increases in pending home sales which shows a local real estate market that continues to recover quite nicely. I was excited to get back to the data this month and see what has transpired since then but based on the activity I am seeing things continue to get better and better. It really is very difficult to find good properties in many locations in certain price ranges. Pending and contingent home sales data are very important metrics when determining how strong real estate sales will be in the months ahead. I like to carefully review this information for each of the communities where I am most active on at least a monthly basis as it gives me a heads up on what the future might bring for my clients. 

When a bilateral contract is entered into there are typically contingencies, historically mainly for home inspections and financing, but in today’s world many times they are short sales waiting for third party, or bank approval. Once these contingencies are lifted the change should be properly recorded into the MLS system as “pending”. History  shows us that the large majority of pending listings will ultimately close, usually within the next two months. The volume of both contingent and pending listings is a good leading indicator of what we can expect in closed sales of Juno Beach homes in the weeks ahead.

Over the past 30 days in Juno Beach we have experienced another increase in pending home sales with 11 on March 15th up from the 9 we had on February 15th. Not only is this our second monthly increase in a row it is our second new annual high in 2 months; great news indeed. These numbers point to a nice increase in closed transactions over the next 30 to 60 days in Juno Beach. With the season still upon us and incredible opportunities in every neighborhood we should be seeing continued increases in both pending listings and sales in the coming months .

A professional real estate agent watches the market trends very closely as the data is very important to our clients, whether they are buying or selling, to paint a picture of where the market may be heading.

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?
