Oakbrook, St. Augustine, Market Report July 2011

 

Looking at the market for homes for sale in Oakbrook there are 13 active listings, with the median list price of $306,450.  Good News, only one is a short sale. A "short sale" is actually a long process – usually over the course of 2 to 6 (or longer) months – where the seller's bank is convinced to take "short" of the full amount owed to the bank by the seller. We are experienced at helping our clients buy short sales usually using a "timing" method rather than a "wait" method.   

 

There was one home sold in July 2011.  The list price was $255,000 and it closed at $238,000.  It had been on the market for 63 days. It was a banke-owned foreclosure.

 

Currently there are two homes under contract, both are short sales.  The median list price for these homes is $283,822.
