Coral Springs single family home sales in May had about a 10% drop in number of homes sold with 80 homes sold compared to April’s sales of 88 homes sold; May is not always a busy selling month with kids getting ready to finish up the school year.

We did see an increase in homes that have been foreclosed on and a decrease in sales of those homes which are trying to avoid being foreclosed upon; a reversal of what happened in April. This is not a trend that we want to see continue as foreclosures are typically tougher on the neighborhood.

More homes for Buyers to select from will keep prices down for Sellers and less homes available for Buyers will let home prices rise. This result is reflected in the Absorption Rate.

May’s rate is slightly higher than April’s rate of 3.53 and March’s rate was at 3.57 which is a drop from February’s rate of 4.83.  If you’re selling your home in Coral Springs, you’re happy! A lower Absorption rate is welcoming for anyone selling their home in Coral Springs as it tells homeowners that it will take 3.59 months to get their home sold.

Sellers want a lower Absorption Rate like this, indicating a greater demand for homes as this shows that there are less homes available for Buyers. Typically, whenever you see a supply of homes that is less than 6 months, it’s a “Sellers Market”. Continued lower Absorption rates can affect future increases in home prices.
