December 2013 Monthly Market Detail St Lucie County Townhouses and Condos

Unfortunatelythe December 2013 Monthly Market Detail St Lucie County Townhouses and Condos as reported by Florida Realtors showed another month of decreasing sales volume as compared to last year.  This is now four months in a row.  This is one of the most under performing sectors in the Treasure Coast and Florida in general for volume.   Year to year closed sales were down by 19.4% (was down by 17.5% in November) while new sales under contract (new pending sales) decreased by 29.1% (was  down by 5.4% in November

Though values were considerably higher this year with the median sales price up by 37.1% (up 40% in November) and the average sales price rose by 38.8% (was up by 31.4% in November).

The inventory of available townhouses and condos decreased from last month to 841 units which is a decrease of 11.1% from last December.  Current supply of inventory remained unchanged from last month to 8.8 months (still an 8.3% decrease from last year).   Unfortunatelythe low inventory along with the rapid increase in values is hurting the volume of condo and townhouse sales in St. Lucie County.  Onceinventory starts to rise, I expect the volume to pick up as well.

Gabe, Very interesting market report. It's surprising that this market area is down this much over last year.

Hope this trend does not continue.

Good morning Gabe,

It is interesting the number of sales are down for 4 months consecutively. Prices are rising but inventory continues to shrink. As you come into the spring months I guess you'll have more of a clue. Many must like where they are living and don't want to move:).

Home buyers that deferred their purchases may be shocked by the price increases. On the other hand, retirees will be happy to find a good selection of properties at affordable prices.

Rising prices...2014 will likely be more of the same. Sellers, it is a good time to sell and buy a new home.

Sales might be slipping a bit in St. Lucie due to the price increases and buyers watching their purchasing power dwindle. I see the same thing in Sacramento. Not only do we have less inventory, but we have fewer buyers too. I think it will take buyers a while to wrap their heads around what happened.

Sounds like there are some good deals left for those who didn't buy in the last few years.
