Cape San Blas Real Estate Week In Review April 3-9, 2021

Published by under Cape San Blas

 

For Sale Sold Sign   We continue to mirror the national market with demand far outweighing supply; our overall inventory is down 18 1/2% from just last week, with a mere 21 houses and 92 lots left from which to choose, leaving a total inventory down 26 from last week, closing with 113 active listings left in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass and C-30 Corridor MLS market. Realtors were busy this week closing twelve sales and putting an astounding twenty-one properties under contract. Sellers added twelve new listings and seven price changes, five of which were price increases.

Crazy times.  Definitely a sellers’ market. If you’re a buyer and interested in a property that’s looking good to you, rest assured it’s looking good to other people as well so make your best offer sooner rather than later or chances are you’re going to lose out. If you’ve. been thinking of selling, please call or text me at 850-227-5197 or drop an email to sherri@sherridodsworth.com and I will help you get started with the process. Have a great week and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Reminder – If you would like to read this with the links to the various listings, I can only email them to you now with our new MLS which I’ll be glad to do. Just let me know by sending me a request to sherri@sherridodsworth.com and I’ll set you up to receive my blog post with the links each week.

Cape San Blas Real Estate Week In Review – Mar 26-Apr 2, 2021

Published by under Cape San Blas

For Sale Sold Sign   Whether it was the usual Spring Breakers or the beginning fallout of Cape San Blas showing up last week in a national news story as having been named by AirBnB as one of the top five spring and summer vacation destinations, whatever the cause, the Cape was loaded to the brink all week.  Not sure if the throngs were predominately Spring Breakers or folks fleeing shutdown states, but whoever they were, a whole lot of them snapped up real estate while they were here. As a result, we closed ten sales and wrote up an astonishing eighteen new contracts! Sellers joined in on the action adding twenty new listings but only made seven price changes.  Our inventory added two, closing the week at 139, still with 28 homes but with 111 lots listed for sale in the Cape San Blas, ndian Pass and C-30 Corridor MLS Market.

As is the case nationwide, our market is woefully short of housing inventory relative to demand. Building costs continue to soar so demand for existing homes at least in our market is at an all time high. If you’ve. been thinking of selling, please call or text me at 850-227-5197 or drop an email to sherri@sherridodsworth.com and I will help you get started with the process.

Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review – Mar. 20-26, 2021

Published by under Cape San Blas

For Sale Sold Sign   According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), new home sales in February were down not because of buyers but because of builders trying to catch up with a back log of orders and putting new starts on hold.  Rapidly rising material costs are another factor; I had a conversation today with an owner of a commercial plumbing business who said the cost of PVC has increased 100% in the past four months alone!

Florida Realtors Chief Economist Dr. Brad O’Connor says, “The statewide inventory of active single-family home listings, which Florida Realtors has been tracking since January 2008, is currently at an all-time low. At the end of February, single-family inventory was down 56.3% compared to a year ago. Most of this decline has been a result of our ultra-high rate of sales.”

Our local market definitely reflects those same trends. This week area Realtors closed thirteen sales and wrote up eighteen new contracts.  Sellers added eight new listings, only two of which were homes with one already being under contract, and changed prices on ten listings, several of which were price inccreases.

Our overall inventory is down nine from last week, closing at 137, with a mere 28 homes and 109 lots listed for sale in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass and C-30 Corridor MLS market.

As you can see, we need inventory, if you’re thinking of selling call or text me at 850-227-5197 or drop an email to sherri@sherridodsworth.com and we’ll get started.  I hope you’re enjoying this beautiful Spring weather, and I really appreciate your taking a break from being out and about to stop by today. Have a great week and hope to see you back here soon.

For Sale Sold Sign   A recent Airbnb survey of favorite destinations for vacationers this year in the US saw Cape San Blas coming in at fifth place and our market activity certainly reflects that interest, closing the week with thirteen sales and double that number of new contracts, with twenty-six parties signing up to purchase a piece of the Forgotten Coast to call their own. Sellers jumped on the bandwagon listing thirteen new properties, seven of which are already under contract, one of which is sold, and one that was withdrawn, leaving only four new listings still available for sale at week’s end. Crazy times. There were three price changes, one of which was a price increase!  All that activity leaves our total inventory down thirteen from last week, closing at 146 with only 30 homes and 116 lots listed for sale in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass and C-30 active MLS listings.

At this rate, we’e entering into ‘sold out’ status. The next few months are going to be very interesting. If you’re thinking of selling call or text me at 850-227-5197 or drop an email to sherri@sherridodsworth.com and we’ll get started. I hope you’re doing well amidst all this craziness. Thank you so much for stopping by today and hope to see you back soon.

Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review – Mar. 6-12, 2021

Published by under Cape San Blas

For Sale Sold Sign   Our market is definitely following the national trend of inventory deficit as demand is so outweighing supply and consequently pressuring pricing upward. This past week we had twelve closings and wrote up a staggering twenty-six new contracts. Sellers added twelve new listings, two of which are already under contract, and made four price changes. Compare and contrast this week’s inventory to my earliest market review in October 2017 when our inventory stood at 558, with 202 homes and 356 lots listed for sale in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass and C-30 Corridor market to today’s total inventory of a mere 159, with just 36 houses and 123 lots listed for sale in the same market. Are you kidding me – just 36 houses? Sobering numbers.

These are crazy times. Sellers are definitely back in the control seat and we desperately need inventory so if you are toying with the idea of selling, please call or text me at 850-227-5197 or drop a note to sherri@sherridodsworth.com and I’ll help you get started.  As always, I appreciate your taking time out of your busy schedule to stop by today and hope to hear from you soon.

Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review – Feb. 26 – Mar. 5, 2021

Published by under Cape San Blas

For Sale Sold Sign   The real estate feeding frenzy continued this week with twenty-one closings and fourteen new contracts.  Sellers added twenty-one new listings, two of which are already under contract and two of which are already sold!  They also made five price changes, one of which was a price increase. Our inventory closed at 175, up six from last week, with 44 homes and 131 lots listed for sale in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass and C-30 Corridor market.

Demand for houses remains especially strong, but lots are moving again as well, so if you’re considering selling, there has never been a hotter time to make your move. Conversely, if you’re thinking of buying, both prices and interest rates are on the rise so you might want to act sooner rather than later. Either way, simply call or text me at 850-227-5197 or drop a note to sherri@sherridodsworth.com and I’ll help you get started.   Thanks for stopping by today and hope to hear from you soon.

For Sale Sold Sign   I think someone must have forgotten to pay the sunshine bill because we sure haven’t seen much sun this past week. Even so, it didn’t dim buyers’ views on snapping up real estate as we had four sales (all houses or condos) and wrote up fourteen new contracts. Sellers added a whopping seventeen new listings, and changed prices on three others. Our inventory swelled by eight, closing the week at 215, with 44 houses and 171 lots listed for sale in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass and C-30 Corridor MLS market.

If you own a home here and have been thinking of selling, demand for houses remains super strong and you are in a great position to sell. Let me know if you’re interested in looking into that and I will be happy to provide you information on how to get started.  Simply call or text me at 850-227-5197 or contact me at sherri@sherridodsworth.com and we’ll get started.
