Jupiter condo prices pull back slightly after 5 month run

It was bound to happen. Nothing can go straight up forever. But what a nice run it has been for median Jupiter condo prices and those throughout the Northern Palm Beaches. Since January they had been on a straight up run, 5 straight months of higher prices.


During that span, the median Jupiter condo price was up significantly from $192,750 all the way up to $216,215 which was a brand new 9 year record. Over the past month median prices pulled back, but it was a minor move down to $215,000. Over the past year condo prices have been on a bit of a rollercoaster and for the year median Jupiter condo prices are up 2.4%.

The number of condo sales in the Northern Palm Beach region dropped significantly and were down about 22% over the past 30 days. Certainly expected as the 4 biggest months for condo sales in the Jupiter area are March, April, May and June. Compared to last year, sales over the past month are down 10.5% as we still lag 2015 numbers in almost every category.

Out on the front lines, well priced condos in good condition remain a hot commodity. A lot of stuff of questionable condition available for buyers; original finishes and bad flips. But finding a quality remodel or new construction at a good price is not so easy. Watch for median Jupiter condo prices to stabilize for at least the next month. Watch for the number of sales to continue to fall. How far sales volume drops will be the precursor to what happens with prices over the next few months. If you are either buying or selling in this market watch the numbers surrounding specific properties very closely.

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?
