Hello Everyone and thank you for watching. This is Gia Freer with Palm Beach Premier Real Estate here in Boca Raton Florida with your local market report for APRIL 2015.  

So here’s a quick take on the numbers that just came out from the Realtors Association of the Palm Beaches

The message this month is that Buyer Demand Strengthens, Sellers Rejoice

So, taking a look at the local market statistics for last month:

April’s year-over-year market statistics reported price growth in Palm Beach County. For single family homes, median sale price rose 10.1% from $272,375 to $300,000, the first increase for this category since October 2014.  

Closed sales also rose, up 17.9% from 1,478 to 1,743 transactions with days on market dropping 9.8% from 51 to 46 days. 

Similar trends occurred in the townhouses/condos sector. Median sale price rose 15.4% from $130,000 to $150,000, closed sales increased 8.7% from 1,385 to 1,506 transactions, and median days on market dropped 10.9% from 55 to 49 days.

For inventory levels, we ended the month of April with 7,303 active listings for single family homes, a 0.3% decrease from the previous year’s 7,326, and 5.0 months’ supply of inventory, a 16.8% decline from 6.1 months. 

For the townhouses/condos sector, we ended with 6,241 active listings, a 3.1% decrease from 6,438, and 5.5 months’ supply of inventory, a 0.7% increase from the previous year.
