The report in Walton County just came out and for the month of November sales are up 5.41% in the Single Family Homes category and up 16.25% year to date overall.
Sales of condos and townhomes were slightly down for the month of November, but still way up at 33.55% for the year.
Residentail Lots in Walton County are selling and were up 10.19% for the month aand up 18.04% for the year.
The good news is that the number of Foreclosures filed fell 34.98% and the number of new filings or Lis Pendens fell 49.29%.
With foreclosures, short sales, REOs and other distressed properties disappearing from the market, prices are beginning to rise about 3% per month again. This is great news for sellers.
Buyers have already missed the lowest prices in the area, but a few really good deals out there still do exist.
If you are looking to buy, work with an Accredited Buyer's Representative and Certified Residential Specialist. Many do not know that these three little initials after a Realtor's Name mean so much. Only about 1% of all Realtors hold this designation. I am one of that 1% and pride myself on representing buyers during a purchase as their Exclusive Buyer's Representative. I will help save you time, money, and avoid costly mistakes.
