Newly released market statistics from Florida Realtors® are in, showing recent real estate market activity in our area. The reports compare year over year data for September. Read on to learn more about the Boca Raton Real Estate market:

Numbers are skewed because of Hurricane Irma

The reports show a huge increase in the number of closed sales in Boca Raton in September 2018 as compared to September 2017, but of course, the numbers are very skewed. Hurricane Irma knocked out a huge number of real estate closings in September 2017, causing many to be canceled or delayed. I expect that the next several months will also show some distorted numbers as a result of last years “weather interruption”.

Additionally, the number of pending sales is

Here’s what buyers and sellers of Boca Raton real estate need to know.

Median Price Continues to Climb

The median price of closed sales jumped significantly over the same period last year. The median price is the midpoint, meaning half the homes sold for more, half for less. Months supply of inventory (how long it would take to sell all of the current homes listed for sale) is still hovering around 6 percent, which indicates a balanced market favoring neither buyers or sellers.

The November 2017 numbers are out for Boca Raton real estate. A few things jump out at me when looking at these:

  • New listings in Boca totaled 600 during November, but only 277 sales closed. Some of this could be residual effects of Hurricane Irma, so we will have to keep a close eye on these numbers in the coming months.
  • We have 6.1 Months supply of inventory in Boca as of November 2017. This indicates a balanced market between buyers and sellers.
  • We have a median sale price of $335,000. This is a 6.3% increase when compared to the same month last year.
  • The median price of $335,000 is still lower than ten years ago, when the median price topped $350,000.

The most expensive single family home in Boca Raton sold in November 2017 was

The numbers are out for October 2017, and it seems that we are still feeling the effects of Hurricane Irma on our market. October closed sales of single family homes in Palm Beach County dropped 3.8 percent as compared to the same period last year, while condo sales dropped 8.5 percent. As discussed in How will Hurricane Irma Impact our Local Residential Real Estate Market, it generally takes several months for the pace of sales to return to normal after a major hurricane. We will need to take a close look at these numbers in the months moving forward to see whether these changes can correctly be attributed to Irma, or whether there are other market forces at play.

The drop in closed sales wasn’t the only notable shift in our market last month. Moving

Boca Raton Market Updates

If there’s one question our Boca Raton real estate agency gets more frequently than any other in real estate, it’s “so, how’s the market?” Many real estate professionals will simply assure the questioner that it’s great or incredibly busy, but that really is doing the person asking a disservice. In reality, there is truly not a succinct answer. As I touched upon last month, our local area is actually more of a dual market. As is true in most markets, the higher up the price ladder, the more lengthy the time on market will be.

In addition to neighborhood and price, there are several other factors that must be considered to accurately determine market condition. The good news is that real estate cycles are long, slow and predictive, and studying

The Florida Association of Realtors has released the sales figures for August 2017. It will be interesting to take a look back next month, once the September figures are in. I expect that the number of closed sales will have decreased as a result of Hurricane Irma, and it may take a few months to recover to “normal” levels. 

When people ask how the market is in Boca, the answer is a little complicated. There are really several different tales depending upon the price point. When people think about Boca real estate, they tend to focus on the multi-million dollar properties, but the reality is the majority of our sales are priced much lower. 

For instance, in August 2017, only 5% of closed sales with a Boca mailing address were properties over the
