Home Sales in Coral Springs – View July 2012 Market Report

It has been another hot Summer and you’ve likely spent a lot of time in your flip flops enjoying family fun and summer vacations. Now might be the time for you to consider selling your home here in Coral Springs. If you are, go ahead and read the  most recent Coral Springs Real Estate Market Report below to see what’s happening. 

If you’re thinking about selling your home in Coral Springs, I’m happy to report that the home selling market in Coral Springs continues to sparkle. Even though July’s single family home sales in Coral Springs dropped by about 15% to having sold 93 homes from June’s 110 home sold; it’s still welcoming news for home sellers.

What is the Distressed Market doing in Coral Springs? Just under 37% of the sales in July were from Distressed Sales; either a Short Sale or Bank Owned Foreclosure. Short Sales came in at less than 21% and REO/Bank Owned/Foreclosures came in a under 17%; a decrease in Short Sales and an increase in Foreclosures compared to June’s rate yet overall relatively the same.  Another month of hard times being felt by many Coral Springs residents whether you’re wanting to sell home as a Short Sale in Coral Springs or whether a Foreclosure simply could not be avoided.

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.

 What is the Coral Springs Absorption rate for July? Just take a close look at the faces of homeowners who are selling their homes and you’ll know why they’re smiling! During July the rate was 2.81% continuing to reflect a Sellers Market. Buyer’s need homes to buy! This low rate tells us that it’s taking about 2.81 months to get a home sold in Coral Springs. Buyers need homes to sell, why not let it be your home if you’re selling your home in Coral Springs!

Absorption Rates can vary by Neighborhood. Call me and we can go over the absorption rate for your neighborhood.

As I’ve said before, 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. We are experiencing a Sellers Market in Coral Springs. Prices increased again this month. (Read further)

Buyers will always beg for a higher Absorption Rate as this means they have more to select from providing Buyers with an increase in opportunities for reduced prices.
