Home Sales in Highland Beach FL | July 2019 Market Report
Real estate market report for July showed a mixed bag of sales in Highland Beach, FL. We have become a year-found market in south Florida, with more people moving here full time to escape winters and high taxes. Of course, we still have snowbirds and snowflakes who come for our beautiful weather and fabulous beaches. The number of listings remained pretty steady in July. Condo prices remained showed an increase and the single family homes that were sold were, on average, more than last month. What also decreased was the days on market.
With more homes coming on the market daily, homeowners who want to sell will want to be a bit more flexible now. The market is becoming more balanced with a lack of inventory in certain buildings. Of course, this can and does vary by community, but with increasing inventory, sellers should take notice.
As a pet-friendly real estate agent in Boca Raton, Highland Beach, Delray Beach and surrounding areas, I am getting the word out to buyers who have been waiting and looking. Interest rates are low. Now is the time to take advantage of them. Sellers are aware but still need to realize and price their condos and homes accordingly. Buyers are more educated today.
