Selling a home in Coral Springs– What sold in your neighborhood during July 2011?
Coral Springs single family home sales decreased this month by just over 3% or 85 homes sold which continues to reflect happy selling.

Whereas, just over 16% of the homes sold were sold as REO/Bank owned which is a pretty much the same to last month. Almost 29% of homes sold in Coral Springs were distressed properties during July 2011; those homes that have been foreclosed on and those homes which are trying to avoid being foreclosed upon. This is another decrease this month from last month yet it still indicates that distressed properties on the market are still competing with non-distressed Sellers selling their homes in Coral Springs which continues to keep prices down. However, a slight increase this month of non-distressed homes selling meaning that the prices of these homes were a bit more attractive during July to Buyers. As previously reported, distressed properties will continue to be a major force of selling competition here in the South Florida Real Estate market for quite some time. To compete with the distressed market, pricing is key as it is one of the things that Sellers can control.
