7,496 Homes For Sale

Real Estate Agent with Watson Realty Corp, Jacksonville, FL FL 3255173

As of this very moment there are 7,496 homes listed for sale through the Northeast Florida MLS. I am a bit of a numbers and statistics geek and spent a decadent hour digging around in our MLS to come up with the following totally irrelevant facts:

Least Expensive: The least expensive listing is actually comprised of 2 single family homes on .17 acres totaling 1,256 sq ft of heated space. This REO property has a total of 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, has been on the market for 105 days and is listed at $4,900.

Most Expensive: The most expensive listing, at $9,750,000, is a 4 bedroom 2 bath home on 40 acres in Ponte Vedra Beach with deeded access to a 10’ private beach. The property has a bit of everything including beach, river, pasture, and jungle and has been listed for 254 days.

Oldest Listing: There is a listing in our MLS that has been on the market for 2,253 days! The 3 bedroom, 2 bath lakeside cottage was listed in 2007 for $230,000; today it is available for $99,000. I’m going to guess that the seller of this home is not terribly motivated.  

Millionare’s Club: Of the 7,496 available properties, 270 are listed for more than $1,000,000 and 2,335 are listed at or below $100,000. What a difference a zero makes!

Market Share: The company I proudly work for, Watson Realty Corp., holds 3,484 or 46.5% of the current available listings in our market. A family-owned business, Watson Realty Corp. recently celebrated its 48th anniversary. Talk about staying power and market dominance!

Most Bedrooms: The greatest number of bedrooms in a single family home currently on the market is ten. I’m relieved to know that the same house has 8 full bathrooms and covers more than 12,300 sq. ft. of luxurious living space.

Smallest House: The smallest house is a mobile home boasting a total area of 363 sq. ft. Don’t mistake small for cheap, though: the home is listed at $85,000.

Largest House: The largest house includes a 2-lane bowling alley, an indoor basketball court, stadium and full-service locker rooms and is a total of 20,359 sq. ft.

Surely with options like these and everything in between there has to be a house to suit most every buyer!
