Jacksonville Real Estate Trends in April – Millennials, Boomers & Investors all Competing for Homes

May 29, 2018

 | 

The biggest issue we discuss every month is the homes available for sale in our local market and the nation. The largest shortage continues to be in the lower price homes. Millennials, boomers and investors are all competing for these homes creating a very competitive market.

 

According to the Northeast Florida Association of Realtors market stats for April 2018, the inventory of homes available for sale is down 9.4% from last year to 8,264 homes. The inventory of homes under $150,000 is down 40% from last April and the homes between $150,000 and $200,000 is down 19%.

 

There is 3.4 months supply of inventory available which is down 12.8% from last year. A balanced market is 5 to 6 months of inventory available.

“One thing I can say about George… he may not be able to keep a job, but he’s not boring.” Barbara Bush

Barbara Bush was a great lady who had a great perspective on life and I will miss her.

“My home is in Heaven. I’m just traveling through this world.” Billy Graham
It is hard to be sad at Billy Graham’s passing because he is finally home. He has inspired us for many years and I will miss him.
