Selling a home in Coral Springs – What sold in your neighborhood during Sept 2011?

Coral Springs single family home sales decreased this month by almost 15% to 77 homes sold; not what we want to see when you’re selling your home. Of these Coral Springs homes listed for sale below, over 20% of them sold as a Short Sale, which is a decline from last month. Whereas, just over 22% of the homes sold were sold as REO/Bank owned which is an increase from last month. Just over 42% of homes sold in Coral Springs were distressed properties during September 2011; those homes that have been foreclosed on and those homes which are trying to avoid being foreclosed upon. This indicates that distressed property home sales are competing ever more with non-distressed Sellers selling their homes in Coral Springs which continues to reflect on home selling prices. As previously reported, distressed properties will continue to be a major force of selling competition here in the South Florida Real Estate market for quite some time. To compete with the distressed market, pricing is key as it is one of the things that Sellers can control.

The inventory of homes rose this month. There is approximately 5.7 months of inventory which is up about 35.4% from August which is down just 2.8% from a year ago September; more inventory means there are more homes available for Buyers, more homes for Buyers to select from will keep prices down for Sellers.
