    Why Selling this Fall Makes Sense: September Real Estate Report

    By Gwinn Volen

    September continues to display an incredible seller’s market in our area.

    Why sell now?

    Low Inventory at the Beaches and the Greater Jacksonville Area

    Northeast Florida has the lowest housing inventory in recent history with Ponte Vedra Beach at 2.4 months supply, and the greater Jacksonville area at 2.1%.

    Buyer Demand is High

    Because inventory is low, homes are seeing a much higher than normal showing rate. Here is what the showings per listing trend line looks like in Ponte Vedra Beach. Our team continues to see new buyers coming from all across the US, looking for a change of lifestyle and a tax relief. In the last week, we’ve had contacts from buyers in New Jersey, Nebraska, California and Atlanta, to give you a sense of the variety.

    Historically Low Interest Rates

    Mortgage interest rates are incredibly low. I’ve seen some rates as low as 1.9% from a private banker. Though inventory is low, which is driving prices up, buyers can still push their money a lot further with these rates

    Bottom Line for Sellers

    Sellers are always going to garner the highest sales price when supply is low and demand is high.

    Bottom Line for Buyers

    The market is competitive. The good news for you is that rates are incredibly low, and you are likely getting more for your money than you did in your last home purchase. And if you are selling your current home, you are likely selling high as well.
