A look at average sold home prices this morning in Naples, Florida shows average home prices rising steadily through May. In the Sunshine MLS for the All Naples Area average home sale prices rose from approximately $320,000 in January to approximately $475,000 in May.
Sales volumes also increased for the same period from roughly 550 sales per month to 1,000 per month. As discussed in this blog earlier in the year our declining supply set up a nice price jump given increased volumes.
The state and national news appears similar. Florida Realtor reported “Housing markets are showing signs of reviving, according to The State of the Nation’s Housing report, released this week by the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University… ‘While still in the early innings of a housing recovery, rental markets have turned the corner, home sales are strengthening, and a floor is beginning to form under home prices,’ said Eric S. Belsky, managing director of the Joint Center for Housing Studies. “
CNN/money reported yesterday “Home prices rose in nearly all major U.S. cities in April from March, further evidence that the housing market is slowly improving even while the job market slumps.The Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller home price index shows increases in 19 of the 20 cities tracked. That’s the second straight month that prices have risen in a majority of U.S. cities.”
