|Daytona Beach Area Real Estate Blog. Information and Reports by Lisa Hill, "THE SMART CHOICE!"|
Being a REALTOR® can be a tough job. Especially when everyone who wants to sell real estate, or buy real estate, wants to hear some good news about the real estate market. Unfortunately, for the last couple of years, the one answer that everyone wants to hear, is not the answer I've been able to give them.
Last year, I posted a blog with a chart that showed the real estate market statistics for 2000-2007. << Follow the link to view that data.
And now it's time for the 2008 year-end real estate review for Volusia County. The following chart shows the listings vs sales comparison for the greater Daytona Beach area. The only difference between this chart and my previous charts is, this chart does not include the data for New Smyrna Beach and Edgewater. As silly as this may seem, the Daytona Beach Association of REALTORS® and the New Smyrna Beach REALTOR® Association are only about 20 miles apart. It's actually easier for me to work with real estate buyers and sellers who are interested in New Smyrna Beach or Edgewater than it is for me to work with clients who want to buy or sell real estate north of Ormond Beach. But Ormond Beach is part of the Daytona Beach area and New Smyrna Beach and Edgewater are separate. But many real estate brokerages will double post their listings to both the Daytona Beach Area Association of REALTORS® and the New Smyrna Beach REALTOR® Association
All that being said, for now, here is the chart with the real estate data for all of 2008, from the Daytona Beach Multiiple Listing Service (MLS).
And here are the specific numbers for each city...
