Here are the 2011 stats and 2010 for comparison -
So, year to year, things appear to be moving in a negative direction for Neptune Beach, with a decrease in homes sold from 13Â to 9, however, look at the increase on the bottom end of the price range.Â The bottom end of the price range moved up from $89,900 to $169,900 which was not reflected in Jacksonville Beach (I will write up Atlantic Beach shortly and see if we have a similar success story there).
Neptune Beach is the smallest of the beach communities, so they experience less swing in pricing and inventory than the larger communities of Jacksonville and Atlantic Beach.
Days on market is fairly flat as well. Properly priced and properly presented properties are STILL selling - currently, the Jacksonville area has about 9.39 months of inventory (housing supply), right now and homes can and do sell in very few days on market. Â Neptune Beach has 15 months of inventory as I write this post, which is down SIGNIFICANTLY from March 2010, when we had 36.50 months of inventory.
