Is it still a buyer's market in Manalapan ? Are you sure ?

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Sun & Sea

The market I serve is the luxury waterfront (homes and condos) along the coastline of south Florida from Palm Beach to South Beach.

Manalapan is a very upscale residential community south of Palm Beach that offers one of the ultimate location for the wealthy buyer looking for an Ocean to Intracoastal Estate.

What we have seen happen overall in the past few years is a gradual shift from a buyer's market on paper to a seller's market in real life. Allow me to explain:

On paper and MLS search may yield dozens and even 100+ properties that match basic criteria like number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, and price range. So far so good right ?

Not so fast. The trained eye of the pro going through the list quickly realizes that most of these properties are "dogs". No view, older units/homes needing extensive remodeling, no pets allowed (condos), rental restrictions (1 or 2 years waiting period for some condos), no rentals permitted (some condos)...

The end result is that multiple buyers are now looking and competing for a much smaller pool of attractive and properly priced properties. Don't be surprised if you find nothing or see multiple offer situations... This is the virtual seller's market we are dealing with.

The key is to be patient but jump at an opportunity when you see it.

Ben,

We are seeing that happen here on the Central Oregon Coast with the lower priced properties. There are not alot of really good looking properties in the lower range, they are sold within a couple of weeks in multiple offers if they are any good.
