ST. LUCIE COUNTY HOUSING MARKET HEATS UP AS MEDIAN SALE PRICE INCREASES
Just in! Newly released market reports from Florida Realtors® detailing recent real estate activity in St. Lucie County. The reports compare year-over-year data for November. Here are statistics on single family homes.
“The November reports are out, and they did not disappoint! The holiday season certainly isn’t slowing down the red-hot housing market in St. Lucie County. We saw a 29.1 percent year-over-year increase in median sale price to $335,000 as well as the average days on market dropping 40 percent to 9 days. It’s impressive to see the consistency in growth for median sale price and the days on market decreasing with regularity in 2021. Houses are being scooped up almost as quickly as they are listed and homeowners are seeing an increasingly great return on investment,” said Karen Johnson, President of Broward, Palm Beaches & St. Lucie Realtors®.
Days on market is a measure of the length of the home selling process calculated for sales which closed during the month. Time to contract measures the number of days between the initial listing for a property and the signing of the contract which eventually led to the closing of the sale.
“As snowbirds and northerners continue to make the move to Florida, the market shows no signs of slowing down as we inch closer to 2022. My advice to people who are contemplating buying or selling is to contact a local Realtor® today and ask for their expertise. A Realtor® can help you with all your real estate needs and negotiate the right price for you in this competitive market,” continues Johnson.
Median sale price is our preferred summary statistic for price activity, because unlike average sale price, median sale price is not sensitive to high sale prices for small numbers of homes that may not be characteristic of the market area.
