Juno Beach Pending Home Sales Down but Still Near Year Long Highs

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Paradise Sharks BK3087579




Thirty days ago I reported here how every one of my main market areas in north Palm Beach County with the lone exception of Palm Beach Gardens reported increases in pending home sales for the third 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 find good properties in many locations in certain price ranges. Pending and contingent home sales data are very important metrics when determining how strong real estate sales will be in the months ahead. I like to carefully review this information for each of the communities where I am most active on at least a monthly basis as it gives me a heads up on what the future might bring for my clients. 

 

When a bilateral contract is entered into there are typically contingencies, historically mainly for home inspections and financing, but in today’s world many times they are short sales waiting for third party, or bank approval. Once these contingencies are lifted the change should be properly recorded into the MLS system as “pending”. History  shows us that the large majority of pending listings will ultimately close, usually within the next two months. The volume of both contingent and pending listings is a good leading indicator of what we can expect in closed sales of Juno Beach homes in the weeks ahead.

 

Over the past 30 days in Juno Beach we have experienced a decrease in pending home sales with 10 on May 15th down from the 12 we had on April 15th. While I would love to see this number continue to increase we are still at very good levels when comparing today’s numbers to those that we have seen over the past 12 months and we remain very near year long highs. Still, now that the season is officially over we need to see how strong the market remains without our northern friends in the mix.

 

A professional real estate agent watches the market trends very closely as the data is very important to our clients, whether they are buying or selling, to paint a picture of where the market may be heading.
