Here are the 2011 stats and 2010 for comparison -
Â 8 Homes Sold Â (YTD=51)
Home sales are down about 25% year over year, not as close to flat as they appeared in the January-June report.Â Days on market has declined, indicating sellers are pricing correctly. The lower end does not appear that much different year to year; and the upper end is flat year over year.
Ponte Vedra Beach has a varied housing supply, including townhomes and condos that make it affordable for many, along with the St. Johnâ€™s County school districts, and a lower tax base.
Properly priced and properly presented properties are STILL selling â€“ currently, the Jacksonville area has about 8.12 months of inventory (housing supply), right now and homes can and do sell in very few days on market. Â Ponte Vedra Beach has 17.38 months of inventory as I write this post, which is up significantly over the June numbers which showed 9.4 months of inventory.
