Market Update

Over the past few years, the communities in our area have experienced consistently high list-to-sale price ratios, often surpassing 100%. This meant that properties were frequently selling for more than their listed prices. However, in recent times, there has been a noticeable shift in the market as list-to-sale price ratios are now trending towards 100% or slightly lower, even dropping to around 90% in certain areas.

This suggests a potential slowdown or stabilization in the real estate market, where sellers are no longer able to command prices significantly higher than their initial listings. In summary, the area has transitioned from a period of exceeding list prices to one where properties are selling closer to their listed values, indicating a possible shift in market dynamics.

Considering this and other aspects of our fluctuating market, it is more important than ever to work with a trusted real estate broker with demonstrated skill, knowledge, and experience. With all of those qualifications and the backing of the only truly global real estate network, nothing compares to Marketplace SIR agents to best represent your investment.

I would love to help you discover what’s next for your real estate journey, please feel free to reach out to me any time!
