Interesting statistics on our market in South Florida…

Posted by fortlauderdalebeachrealestate on March 5, 2010

In past 6 months 52% of the closed residential sales reported through MLS were REO’s or short sales.

Currently about 38% of active inventory is in one of those categories with the number of short sales rising dramatically. 

At the beginning of last year we had 28,500 listings active on the market in our MLS systems and that represented 22.4 months of inventory

At the beginning of 2010 that number shrunk to 17,856 which is a 37% decrease.  Months of inventory has correspondingly been reduced to 11.7 months, about half of where it was last year.

Single Family Homes priced between $1 – 2.5 million have 35.9 months of inventory as of January 2010

Single Family Homes priced between $2.5 – 5 million have 130.7 months of inventory as of January 2010

Avgerage sales price in January of 2009 was $186,000

Average sales price this January is $162,000 (13% less)
