Selling a home in Coral Springs? Did you hear what sold during February 2012?

Coral Springs single family home sales Increased this month by over 11% to 59  homes sold; always a welcome sign when you’re trying to sell your home.

Of these Coral Springs homes listed for  sale below, we’re seeing another month of increases in Sellers who  completed a short sell. Over 32% of homes sold were sold as a Short  Sale which is an increase from last month Short sales of 27%. Whereas, over 22% of the homes sold were REO/Bank owned which is a large increase going back  up from last month’s 8%. Does this mean Banks have started to move homes that  have been hanging in foreclosure limbo for so long now due to  the onslaught of robo signing foreclosures. Have all of the “I”‘s and “T”‘s now  been dotted and crossed? As I noted in last months market report, that foreclosures are likely to increase again – it has begun.

Increasing this month and up again from last months 42%, 54% of  homes sold in Coral Springs were distressed properties during February 2012;  those homes that have been foreclosed on and those homes
which are trying to avoid being  foreclosed upon
. If you’re selling your home in Coral  Springs, you can continue to expect to be competing with the distressed property  reflecting on home selling prices.

To compete with the distressed market, there are many things that a Coral Springs Seller can do to make their home stand out from the  competition. Check out: Selling your home in Coral Springs – what it takes.

More homes for Buyers to select from will keep prices down for Sellers  and less homes available for Buyers will let home prices rise. During February,  the Absorption Rate fell  to 4.83 which is a drop from January’s rate of 5.77. Good news is you’re selling your home! This indicates that based on the current available homes for sale, it  will take 4.83 months to get them sold; it will take less time to get your 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. Continued lower Absorption rates can affect future increases in home prices. 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.
