Posted by in News

“You must do the things you think you cannot do.” Eleanor Roosevelt
Happy New Year! The new year always brings reflection on the previous year, new goals and so much hope.
December made a strong showing in the Northeast Florida Association of Realtors market stats. The pending sales, closed sales and prices all show increases over last December and year over year.
The new listings were up 1% for the month and the year. The available inventory continues to be the biggest story nationally and locally. The homes available for sale dropped 19.4% from 8,763 last December to 7,062 this December. There are 2.9 months supply of homes for sale compared to 3.8 months last December for a 23.7% decrease.

Jacksonville Real Estate Trends in September – Irma Recovery & 2018 Housing Predictions!

“Change before you have to.” Jack Welch

We had finally settled into a more stable real estate market this year without quite so many wild swings, and then Irma decided to pay us a visit. Change is always coming.

The Northeast Florida Association of Realtors market stats for September show new listings down 21% and closed sales down 25% which are the most obvious impacts from Irma. We were stuck in a holding pattern waiting for the storm for days and then with the aftermath clean up and repairs, fewer people listed their home for sale. Closings were delayed due to insurance issues, re-inspections and repairs. (more…)

Jacksonville Real Estate Trends in April – 1st Quarter was the Best Quarterly Sales Pace in a Decade!

“Commitment is an act, not a word.” Jean-Paul Sartre

This quote seems very appropriate for everyone in the real estate industry. We are trusted with the largest purchase in most family’s lives. Thankfully, we have many great professionals in the real estate industry that act with true integrity.

The local and national real estate market is heating up for the summer. An article from Florida Realtors about the National Association of Realtors midyear forecast says “The first quarter was the best quarterly existing sales pace in exactly a decade (5.62 million), and Yun (Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist) expects activity to stay on track and finish around 5.64 million – the best since 2006 (6.47 million) and 3.5 percent above 2016. With several metro areas seeing hefty price growth, the national median existing-home price is expected to rise around 5 percent this year.” (more…)

Jacksonville Real Estate Trends in August -Top 4 Reasons Closings Get Delayed

“At the moment when you feel like you have reached the point of absolute exhaustion, inspire yourself to take one last step, and that is when you have successfully arrived to the next level.” Master Jin Kwon

This quote really inspires me because it is so rare to see true mastery in sports, the arts and business. It is fun to have college and professional football back and the final days of baseball for this year.

The Northeast Florida Association of Realtors market stats for August continue to show a strong local real estate market. The closings and pending sales are up, the median and average sales price are up and the inventory of homes for sale and percentage of distressed properties are down. All of these trends are very positive. (more…)
