Jupiter home prices make nice jump in March

The median price of a single family home in the Jupiter area was up 2.4% as of April 1st. While that is a solid monthly increase it really is just the latest “yo-yo” like move that has kept prices essentially flat over the past year. As of today, the median priced single family home in the Northern Palm Beaches sits at $435,300. Last year, at this time, that same median priced home was worth $432,500. So, over the past year a gain of about 6/10’s of 1%. Hardly worth talking about.


Not even a week into the month of April, inventory levels continue to move lower which is a good sign if you are hoping for prices to increase. Pending home sales have made big jumps over each of the past 3 months and while not moving higher, have held their own, so far in April. Another sign for prices remaining strong.

The average overnight rate on a 30 year conforming loan sits at 3.95% this morning. That is down 22 basis points since the Fed “raised” rates back on March 15th. Keep a close eye on where they go from here as that is a huge part of the real estate picture moving forward.

Season is winding down and single family home sales will too, in about 6 weeks. June means more single family home closings that any other month here in the Jupiter area. Prices staying in a tight range, as we have been seeing, is a good sign moving forward.

Both buyers and sellers need to be informed in any market. That is more true now than ever before.

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?
