Jupiter area condo prices up for 2nd straight month

Median condo prices in the Northern Palm Beaches have made significant gains for each of the past 4 years. Since 2011 prices have moved higher each year and 2 1/2 months into the new year it certainly looks like a 5th straight year of increases is well underway.

Median Condo Prices

As of March 15th, the median sales price of a condominium in the Jupiter area is up again, about 1.3% over the past 30 days. Not a huge increase but it brings us back up to $200,000 for the 1st time in 4 months. Seasonal purchases have been decent and all signs are pointing to median prices increasing in the months ahead.

Sales have slowed considerably when compared to year ago numbers. Over the first two months of the year the volume of closed condo sales in the Northern Palm Beach market are down 15.5%. A warmer than normal winter up north shares the blame with limited inventory of well priced units and fewer international buyers because of a strong US dollar.

Todays condo prices look a bargain when compared to prices in the single family home market. Consider the reality that the median condo price in the Jupiter area is still 28.6% below the market highs before the bubble burst in 2006 while the median single family home prices is only down 12.4%.

Each individual condo has a different set of current demand and competition that needs to be analyzed.

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?
