Average sales prices have shown an increase of 6.05% for single famlly homes and a huge 21.25% in condos from 2011 to 2012. 

In some areas, in some price points, the inventory of properties for sale is down by 50% to 60%.  So, many lower priced houses are in multiple offer situations. Houses are selling before the signs even get planted in the front yard.

We are finding that clean, well priced properties are still moving off the market quickly. 178 of the properties sold in de December sold within the first 30 days on the market. This is a great reminder that a well priced property will move off of the market quickly. 

We are still finding a large percentage of investors in the market, scooping up properties, in multiple offer situations. Cash still appears to be king in purchasing properties. 212 buyers paid cash and 123 purchased with conventional mortgages in December 2012.

It's funny, but lately, we haven't heard much talk about the "shadow inventory" of foreclosed homes that have yet to hit the market.  When are those coming and what effect will they have on prices?

Condo sale prices have increased by 21.25%. That's great news, when so many lenders are unable to finance some condos. Our second/vacation home market is still moving along briskly. Brevard County is still a favorite destination for those buyers moving south, or just looking for a vacation home, because our great weather, the Indian and Banana rivers and the beautiful sandy beaches.

Sandy, I liked reading your market report especially the year for the county, and with the NASA related layoffs the housing market still seems surprisingly strong. Good luck to you in 2013.

Gary, We have seemed to feel a huge effect from the Space Center layoffs.  I suppose we are blessed. Our market has been brisk.

Hi Lou, Our market does seem to be getting stronger.  Hopefully it will stay on the same path.

Frank, We do have a positive outlook for the horizon.  Great point on the resales. I looked the information up and added it to the post, 5787 resales, 2156 short sales and 1543 foreclosures sold in 2012.

Gabe, We are seeing good numbers in Brevard.  People are out in the market buying, so houses are selling quickly.
