April Single Family Home Sales in Tequesta Very Impressive Indeed

Tequesta Single family Home Sales Up 30% in April

In our March report Tequesta was the only one of our reporting areas that showed a decrease in sales and it is nice to report a very healthy 30% jump in April. During the month our local MLS system shows a total of 13 successful closings as of this mornings’ update. That compares with 10 sales in March, tied for the second highest sales levels of the year and a solid continuation of a market improving even though prices are still being held down by the foreclosure sales.

While the number of sales were very strong last month they also were well balanced with only the under $150,000 drawing a blank and that is mainly because there just isn’t any decent inventory out there any more in this category .The chart below shows the percentage of sales by price category for the month of April.

With sales falling evenly across most price categories the median sales price showed a big gain and put in the 4th highest total of the preceding year. In fact, it was up to $405,000 in April up $149,000 from the previous month and a great move in the right direction. The chart below shows median prices on a monthly basis over the previous 12 month period.

I watch these 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?
