Florida Keys Market Update July 2020

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Schmitt Real Estate
Friends and Clients —

Nobody expected a real estate rebound quite like this.

As a result, we’re seeing a unique opportunity for anybody thinking of selling a home. We’ll explain what we mean in a second. First, let us give you the details:

1. A surge in demand

According to the National Association of Realtors, pending home sales spiked a stunning 44.3% in May compared with April.

That is the largest one-month jump in the history of the survey, which dates back to 2001. It blasted expectations of a 15% gain.

our broker at our July 8th sales meeting, stated that in the 65 years of our company's existence, June of 2020 had the highest amount of properties go under contract ever in the company's history!

Of course, the reason behind this is the pandemic. Much of the housing market shut down entirely in April. Since this is normally the hottest part of the year for real estate, there is a tremendous amount of pent-up demand. But that's not all.

2. Ultra-low mortgage rates

Mortgage rates continue to hit new record lows.

The 30-year fixed mortgage rate currently stands at 3.03%, more than a half percent lower than a year ago.

Not surprisingly, this is creating even more demand, as buyers seek to take advantage of these historically low and favorable rates. There's only one thing standing in their way:

3. A lack of inventory

The inventory of homes for sale was low even before the pandemic hit.

It's even lower now since many sellers pulled their homes off the market and have been slow to list them once again.

The supply of existing homes for sale at the end of May was nearly 19% lower than the same time last year.

What does all this mean for you?

In short, it means we are back in a strong seller's market.

Pent-up demand and low mortgage rates mean there are many buyers on the market. On the other hand, low inventory means much of that demand is not being met.

As a result, prices are rising, bidding wars are becoming common, and homes are selling quickly.

If you were to sell in the current market, you'd have a great shot at selling for top dollar and in record time.

Like we said, right now might be a unique moment. It's not clear how long this situation will last. As more sellers start listing their homes, we're likely to have some balancing out between supply and demand.

When a listing becomes canceled or expired, it can tarnish the property, but with the right plan moving forward, it doesn't have to. By FOCUSING on what prevented the sale, we can build a strategy that will revitalize the listing. Our approach has been proven time and time again to successfully sell canceled and expired listings, and we can do the same for you. Don't let your prior experiences deter you from getting your property SOLD. It only takes one buyer to make a deal happen. We know how to find that buyer and get the deal that you deserve. Call us today!
