Melendez, President of Broward, Palm Beaches & St. Lucie Realtors®.
Inventory is the number of property listings that are active at the end of the month. Meanwhile, months’ supply of inventory is an estimate of the number of months it will take to deplete the current inventory given recent sales rates.
“Sellers, don’t let rising inventory levels deter you from listing your property. Yes, we have more supply entering the market, but St. Lucie County is still seeing intense competition among buyers. Our area is one of the most sought-after regions to purchase real estate in the country, and we see that through median home prices rising again with an increase of 22.7 percent to $390,000.
