The Walton County Sales Trends Report just came out for the month of December. Like the unemployment rate going down to 8.5% Nationally, the employment is evident in Walton County Florida. I am seeing new construction popping up all around me again. It feels so good to see this positive trend.
Here are the numbers:
Single Family Home sales rose for the month of December by 56.14% over same period last year.
Single Family Home sales for the year rose by 19.58% over 2011 sales.
Condos and Townhomes rose 46.77% for the month of December over same period last year.
Condos and Townhome sales rose 34.53% for the year over 2011 sales.
Residential Lot sales were down for the month of December by 26.67%, but still rose for the whole year by 10.70% over 2011 sales.
Overall sales in all categories were up 18.30% over last year.
What does all of this mean? Increasing competition for buyers on a shrinking inventory.
If I can be of service to you, please do not hesitate to ask.
