Sales are down 66% month over month, which is exactly what we saw in the September report. This is very similar with the decreases we are seeing across the area as we head out of the busy summer buying & selling season. Lowest sold home price is up a nice amount, (year over year) part of which is due to Neptune Beach being the smallest of the beaches communities and being a bit more stable than the other beaches. Days on market are down considerably, both month over month and year over year, which is an excellent sign of a stabilizing market.
Properly priced and properly presented properties are STILL selling – currently, the Jacksonville area has 9.70 months of inventory (single family housing supply), which is up a bit over the past few months, but not the highest figure of the year. Neptune Beach has 24.5 months of inventory as I write this post, which is the highest level since February 2011 This is really due to the decrease in sales, and most likely nothing more than that (as in, don’t worry).
