Home Sales Report in Highland Beach | Sept 2019 Market Report
Highland Beach FL Real estate market report for September showed a slower month of sales. The number of listings remained pretty steady in September. Condo prices showed an increase and no single family homes were sold. Days on market remained pretty much the same.
With the new tax laws up north, we have more and more coming to live in south Florida full time. Of course, we still have snowbirds and snowflakes who come for our beautiful weather and fabulous beaches for the winters only.
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.
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.
Some sellers are sitting tight while there are still deals to be had. Contact me to find the best deals.

CONDO SALES IN HIGHLAND BEACH FL
Highland Beach real estate market report showed as of September 30, 2019, there were 163 condos for sale. That’s less than than last month. It may not sound like a lot, but many people don’t realize how small Highland Beach really is.

The highest-priced listing currently available in September was $ 6,700,000 and the lowest was $ 274,900.
No, that isn’t a mistake. You read it right. There are a wide variety of housing options in this small exclusive enclave.

It runs all across the board.

What can Highland Beach FL Residents Expect Regarding Real Estate In The Coming Months?
The Highland Beach real estate market remains steady. Buyers are out there, but they’re more savvy. Sellers need to be aware and price their properties for today’s market, not the market of a year ago or even six months ago.
While this varies by building and community – some communities have more inventory, while others have very little – you need a great agent to explain these facts to get your home sold. Or, in the alternative, if you’re a buyer, you need a great buyer’s agent to do the research for you, especially if you’re looking for a pet-friendly condo in Highland Beach, FL.
