Housing Inventory Remains Stable at Month End

Posted on Thursday, February 28, 2013

7.31 months of inventory. Not bad. Better than a couple of years ago when we were two years+. According to the Sunshine MLS this morning for the All Naples area there are 5,594 properties for sale and 9,177 were sold in the last year – giving an inventory figure of 7.31 months.
So what? Well lower supply levels are more supportive of prices as properties for sale become harder to find and scarcity allows sellers to raise their prices. Buyers in this market may find they need to be more accommodating of condition as well – those fixer uppers look better and better.
Results differ by area of course. When looking for property be sure you learn the supply demand balance in a particular neighborhood or even street. We know of one street in a gated community for example where the inventory is too high and sellers are likely to need to reduce price to make the sales. Buyers for properties on this street may be a little more aggressive on their offers. All of this where the opposite may be true in the general market.
But … things are sure better than a couple of years ago. With a tough winter up north and improving real estate conditions here in Naples our real estate recovery continues to come along nicely.
