jupiter realtor: Another Very Sweet Month to be a Jupiter Realtor - 08/08/14 11:11 PM

Local single family home sales soar to new recordIf you run into a Jupiter Realtor these days you can be sure they have a smile on their face. A big smile. In fact, this Jupiter Realtor broke into a huge grin as I was finalizing numbers for today's article. You see I take great pride in knowing the market numbers and am confident saying you would be very hard pressed to find another Jupiter Realtor who studies them like I do. It's my passion to know these numbers like the back of my hand. Without this knowledge I could not make … (0 comments)

jupiter realtor: Jupiter Home Sales and Prices Under Pressure in October - 12/03/11 11:15 PM
Jupiter Home Sales Down 12% in October
Still trying to catch up after a well deserved vacation and a return to a south Florida real estate market that is hot, hot, hot. While I quit reading the newspaper and listening to news on the TV I get more than enough from the internet and know how the talking heads report how bad everything is with the economy. Somebody forgot to tell home buyers how bad it is because they continue to spark the amazing rebound we have seen this year. Particularly strong is the single family home market and well priced … (2 comments)

jupiter realtor: Jupiter Home Inventory Levels Rise for the 2nd Straight Month - 11/27/11 06:41 AM
Jupiter Home Inventory Levels Up 3%Wow what a little havoc a well planned holiday can play. Working like crazy to ensure I took care of my clients before leaving the country on a little vacation then coming back to a real estate market that is on fire has put me behind on my blogs; way behind. With the Thanksgiving weekend upon us I knew the annual slowdown we experience this weekend would allow me to catch up and for that I am thankful! 
Real estate sales throughout the north county area have had a strong showing for most of the year … (0 comments)

jupiter realtor: Low Inventory Again Plays Role in Lower Jupiter Pending Home Sales - 10/16/11 05:01 AM
Jupiter Pending Sales Drop to 9 Month Low
 

The local real estate market continues to chug on down the road towards another season and our northern friends can already be seen around town. Every time I drive by one of the clubs a truck is out front unloading cars. It will be interesting to see the impact they have on real estate sales in the upcoming months. One thing for sure is the market is constantly changing; this week interest rates were up considerably as were foreclosures for the second week in a row. Inventory levels remain very low … (1 comments)

jupiter realtor: Jupiter Pending Home Sales Drop for the 3rd Straight Month - 08/19/11 10:27 AM
What a difference a month makes and a lot has happened since we last updated the pending sales data in the north county area. The biggest news affecting us all was the downgrading of the credit rating of the United States. One would think that would make interest rates jump but alas the Fed jumps in and announces they are going to try and keep them artificially low for at  least the next two years.  I, for one, certainly hope they can but I think that was more posturing in order to calm the equity markets more than anything else.

jupiter realtor: July in Jupiter Meant Fewer Home Sales; August Numbers Worth Watching - 08/13/11 08:42 PM
July Home Sales in Jupiter Show Some Strength
After what has been an unbelievable spring and summer buying season I was chomping at the bit to pull the final numbers for home sales throughout the region for July. With all the negative news on the economic road map perhaps the best bit of news was the Fed’s announcement that they will try to keep interest rates artificially low for at least 2 more years. Great news indeed for homebuyers but let’s see if they alone can keep rates down this low. 
 
We started off this months update with single family … (3 comments)

jupiter realtor: Jupiter Inventory Levels Set Another New Low in July - 08/08/11 10:55 PM
Watching the inventory levels continue their monumental drop has really been a thing of beauty. Month after month we report new annual lows in home inventory levels throughout the north county area. This month is no different as we again need to adjust the scale on our charts to handle the new lows. No doubt we need to see these levels maintain and while it is making it ever more difficult to find price driven buyers to homes that meet their expectations no doubt this is a critical metric for future price appreciation.Last month in Jupiter inventory levels continue to go … (0 comments)

jupiter realtor: Jupiter Single Family Home Sales Jump Over 6% in June - 07/10/11 09:59 PM
June Single Family Home Sales Very Solid in Jupiter
Last month we reported how sales had fallen during May as we transitioned from a very strong spring buying season into the summer months. Yesterday I started off the monthly updates with Hobe Sound and the numbers look excellent for June then followed up with Juno Beach condominium sales which were hardly stellar. As I start up again this morning I am thinking we should see other areas reporting solid June sales as everyone has been so busy it would be hard to think otherwise. So we start up again today with … (1 comments)

jupiter realtor: Jupiter Pending Home Sales Down 13% - 06/16/11 01:44 AM
Every month at this time we take a look at the level of pending real estate sales in the north county area as it is the most important metric when determining what future sales will be. Everyone has had an amazing spring with stronger sales than we have had in years. Interest rates continue to plunge, we have seen an interesting drop in foreclosures and inventory levels are at year long lows. As we transform from the traditionally strong spring buying season to what typically are slower summer months it will be very interesting to watch and see just how strong … (0 comments)

jupiter realtor: Jupiter Home Sales Take a Breather After Strong Spring Buying Season - 06/13/11 12:42 AM
Jupiter Single Family Home Sales Down 27% During May
The strength of the spring home buying season in Palm Beach and Martin Counties has been nothing short of spectacular. Inventories as reported here are at year long lows and interest rates were down again for the 8th time in 9 weeks.   I wondered just how long can we keep this party going as I sat down to put together the final sales numbers for May. During the month our local MLS system shows a total of 73 successful single family home closings in Jupiter as of this mornings’ update. That … (0 comments)

jupiter realtor: Jupiter Home Inventory Levels Take Another Sharp Drop - 05/01/11 01:44 AM
 
It is remarkable how happy everyone is around the office these days. Keller Williams Realty in Jupiter continues to thrive and grow and everyone seems busy, busy, busy.  Inventory levels, as reported here every month at this time, continue to drop which shows how well the local real estate market has been recovering. Sales remain strong and there is truly a shortage of quality homes in the below $400,000 price categories. Working with numerous clients trying to find a home is difficult and we are often faced with multiple offer situations. Local inventories are full of homes that have quality … (0 comments)

jupiter realtor: Jupiter Pending Home Sales Make Big Jump; 5th Straight Increase - 04/14/11 10:13 PM
Thirty days ago I reported here how every one of my main market areas in north Palm Beach County reported increases in pending home sales for the second month in a row, most of which set new year long highs. These statistics showed a local real estate market that continues to recover quite nicely. Once again I was excited to get back to the data this month and see what has transpired since then but based on the activity I am seeing things continue to get better and better on the real estate front lines. It really is very difficult to … (0 comments)

jupiter realtor: Lately it Occurs to me What a Long Strange Trip it's Been - 04/11/11 10:54 PM

 
To borrow the line from the Grateful Dead, every closing seems to take me back to the old line from their song Truckin'. Does anyone remember when a closing was a celebration; a new homeowner happy to get the keys to their new home and start a wonderful life full of cherished memories within its walls?
The housing crisis has many faces and the lack of customer service and caring about what we do and how we promote ourselves and our profession is one of the saddest faces of this entire debacle. Just last week we closed on a … (4 comments)

jupiter realtor: Jupiter Single Family Homes Sales Off the Charts in March - 04/06/11 07:08 PM
Jupiter Single Family Home Sales Hit New Year Long High.
After falling slightly in February Jupiter single family home sales soared like an eagle during March jumping 72% to a new yearly high. During the month our local MLS system shows a total of 91 successful closings as of this mornings’ update. That compares with 53 sales in February and a continuation of a market improving even though prices are still being held down.
While the number of sales soared last month they remained intrenched in the lower price ranges with 84% of all sales below $500,000. The local market is … (1 comments)

jupiter realtor: Dramatic Decrease in Jupiter Home Inventory Levels - 04/02/11 08:35 PM
Last month at this time we reported decreases in the inventory levels in most of the northern Palm Beach County market areas. As the real estate market continues to recover it is important that we start to see these declines continue. Sales remain strong and there is truly a shortage of quality homes in the below $400,000 price categories. Working with numerous clients trying to find a home is difficult and we are often faced with multiple offer situations. Local inventories are full of homes that have quality issues and many of these are hard to sell and therefore skew the … (0 comments)

               Interest rates up for the 1st time in 3 weeks.

 
Interest rates increased last week but still remain very low and the market remains perfect for buyers and those who still have not taken this historical opportunity to refinance.

Remember this is the average overnight rate and those with good credit will still be able to lock in … (0 comments)

jupiter realtor: Jupiter Florida Pending Home Sales Up for 4th Month in a Row to Another New Record High - 03/15/11 06:39 PM
Last month at this time I was so pleased to report how every one of my main market areas in north Palm Beach County reported increases in pending home sales which shows a local real estate market that continues to recover quite nicely. I was excited to get back to the data this month and see what has transpired since then but based on the activity I am seeing things continue to get better and better. It really is very difficult to find good properties in many locations in certain price ranges. Pending and contingent home sales data are very important … (0 comments)

Remember this is the average overnight rate and those with good credit will still be able to lock in rates below these averages.
