Hobe Sound Inventory Levels Drop for 6th Straight Month

Watching the inventory levels continue their monumental drop has really been a thing of beauty. Month after month we report new annual lows in home inventory levels throughout the north county area. This month is no different as we again need to adjust the scale on our charts to handle the new lows. No doubt we need to see these levels maintain and while it is making it ever more difficult to find price driven buyers to homes that meet their expectations no doubt this is a critical metric for future price appreciation.



Last month in Hobe Sound inventory levels continue to go lower and this marks the 6th straight decline and another new record low. The net inventory of real estate currently for sale on our local Multiple Listing Service (MLS) in Hobe Sound now stands at 406 down 8 units from the July 1st level. Inventory levels are now lower by about 21% from our annual high which is a very significant move. 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 decrease buyers have fewer choices and typically pricing pressure will be to the upside. 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 8 fewer 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 which are still at remarkably low levels after hitting another new low last week.

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?
