Jacksonville Real Estate Trends in June – Inventory is Tight! Now is the Time to Sell

“Among the things you can give and still keep are your word, a smile, and a grateful heart.” Zig Ziglar

Pending sales for the last 4 months are the highest we have seen. There were 2,741 contracts written in June which is 4% more than last June. Davidson Realty’s sales are up more than 12% over the first half of 2016. (more…)

Jacksonville’s Real Estate Trends for May Continue to Show Pending Sales are Still Booming!

“Every man’s life is a fairy tale written by God’s fingers.” Hans Christian Andersen

My husband’s life truly is a fairy tale thanks to an organ donor. We are celebrating 9 years since Jim’s transplant and we count our blessings and friends every day.

The Northeast Florida Association of Realtors market stats for May are extremely positive. The pending sales in May of 2,839 are 6% more than last May and we are up 5% year to date. The last 3 months our totals are higher than the number of transactions in the peak of the market in 2005 and 2006. We are continuing to see strong buyer activity. (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 October – It’s a Great Time to Sell! Our Buyer/Seller Incentive is Valid Through 12/31/16

“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.” — Albert Schweitzer

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to think about all we are grateful for. I want to express my gratitude to all the companies that supported our first annual Shooting for SAYS event. Because of you, Davidson Cares raised $30,000 for St. Augustine Youth Services. SAYS does a tremendous job working with boys that have suffered severe abuse and neglect. Please save the date for our 2017 shoot which will be on October 19th. (more…)
