Here is a summary of the Cardiff real estate market for February 2018 based on information provided by the MLS (private sales are not included; the data are believed to be accurate as of this writing but are not guaranteed).

The overall volume of sales in Cardiff shifted up fairly significantly from last month. 40% of the transactions in February were for cash, compared to 43% last month. 3 homes sold at or above asking price. Average prices increased for detached homes, but dropped on average for attached homes compared to January; 4 of the 10 homes sold for under $1 million.


At the end of February 2018 there were no homes in the Cardiff housing market with a Contingent status (i.e., for the most part these are short sale and REO homes that have accepted offers being reviewed by the lenders), the same as last month.

As of the end of February 2018 there were 20 Cardiff homes for sale, a 25% increase in inventory from January, and good news for buyers. This represents an inventory of 1.5 months for attached homes (the same as last month), and 3 months for detached homes (up from 2.4 months last month) based on the rate of sales over the last 3 months. The Cardiff market remains a very strong seller’s market for buyers of attached and detached homes.


14 Cardiff homes came on the market in February, compared to 17 last month. Only 5 homes went pending in February (not counting those that sold) compared to 13 in January.

Thank you Gita Bantwal  I appreciate the kind words.

I hope they will Joyce Marsh, Daytona Beach Florida  - it's a pretty competitive market with limited inventory. The data, and the impact on buying and selling decisions, are important to understand.
