What does it all mean to you? What are Coral Springs FL Real Estate trends? Where is our Real Estate Market headed?
With prices steadily rising, more Sellers are able to sell their homes or are more interested in selling their homes in hopes of greater profits from the sale of their home. With more Sellers now listing their homes for sale, the inventory of homes increasing, signals a continued move away from a Seller’s market to a Balanced market and then on it’s way to a Buyer’s market, no longer giving Seller’s a stronghold in the local Coral Springs Real Estate market. We’re still in a Seller’s market, as the Absorption Rates shows a rate of 4.29%, which show the available inventory of homes (4.29 months supply of homes) which was 4.69% in March. (Absorption rates will vary by neighborhood. If you’d like to know more about your neighborhood Absorption rate, I’d be happy to discuss it further with you.) Once you reach an Absorption Rate of 6%, we’d be considered experiencing a Balanced market between Sellers and Buyers. The trend is taking us towards a Buyer’s market where Buyers will place more demands upon Sellers. “Should I sell my home now?”, you ask. When the inventory of homes is below a 6 months supply, you as a Seller, will have the upper hand with greater opportunities for price appreciation. As the inventory of homes increases, Buyers will have more homes to choose from and they won’t have to face heavy bidding competition with other Buyers because there are enough homes for everyone! Don’t wait for Buyers to have too many choices. If you want to sell your home in Coral Springs, call me and I can tell you how I’ll get your home sold for top dollar and fast! Remember, when the market turns to excess inventory, the price and timeline of selling your home can be affected adversely. As long as interest rates continue to stay at current levels for the year, as predicted along with the continued easing of financing requirements for Buyers, the demand for homes should remain constant.
Let’s look at year over year from April of last year 2013. A year ago April the median home sales price was $270,000, showing today’s median price being an increase of about 24% in one year’s time.

More about home selling in Coral Springs
Do you want an accurate Real Estate value of your home in Coral Springs? I won’t tell you what you want to hear, but rather what you can sell your home for in today’s South Florida Real Estate Market. Many Realtors will “buy” your listing by simply agreeing with you for whatever you’d like to sell your home for and this will do you more harm than good. Pricing your home high and then having to reduce the price because your home is not selling will result in you receiving less money for your home than had you priced it right to begin with. I can tell you why that is and has been statistically proven. Call me, email me or click here: Find out my Home’s Value in Coral Springs Florida.
