What does it all mean to you? What are Coral Springs FL Real Estate trends? Where is our Real Estate Market headed?
During March, the Absorption Rates which show the available inventory of homes, now shows a rate of 4.69% which is a decrease from February’s rate at 5.49%. (Absorption rates will vary by neighborhood. If you’d like to know more about your neighborhood Absorption rate, I’d be happy to discuss it further with you.) Once you reach an Absorption Rate of 6%, we’d be considered experiencing a Balanced market between Sellers and Buyers. The trend is taking us towards a Buyer’s market where Buyers will place more demands upon Sellers. “Should I sell my home now?”, you ask. When the inventory of homes is below a 6 months supply, you as a Seller, will have the upper hand with greater opportunities for price appreciation. As the inventory of homes increases, Buyers will have more homes to choose from and they won’t have to face heavy bidding competition with other Buyers because there are enough homes for everyone! Don’t wait for Buyers to have too many choices. If you want to sell your home in Coral Springs, call me and I can tell you how I’ll get your home sold for top dollar and fast! Remember when the market turns to excess inventory, the price and timeline of selling your home can be affected adversely. Don’t wait to sell your home when it moves in to a Buyer’s market and their demands will increase, such as wanting more from you as a Seller and their willingness to pay top dollar for your home can wane.
We’ve had prior uncertainty in the Real Estate Market while observing median home sale prices fluctuating up and down now from $307,00 to $325,000 since the last quarter of 2013. As long as interest rates continue to stay at current levels for the year as predicted along with the continued easing of financing requirements for Buyers, the demand for homes should remain constant.

Do you want an accurate Real Estate value of your home in Coral Springs? I won’t tell you what you want to hear, but rather what you can sell your home for in today’s South Florida Real Estate Market. Many Realtors will “buy” your listing by simply agreeing with you for whatever you’d like to sell your home for and this will do you more harm than good. Pricing your home high and then having to reduce the price because your home is not selling will result in you receiving less money for your home than had you priced it right to begin with. I can tell you why that is and has been statistically proven. Call me, email me or click here: Find out my Home’s Value in Coral Springs Florida.
