Greater Tampa Home Sales June 2017 – Tampa Market Monday

Happy Monday!

Today, let’s review the performance of the Greater Tampa housing market in June of 2017.

The table above shows that Total Sold Dollar Volume jumped 21.1% from June 2016 and 4.3% from May 2017. The Number of Homes Sold (or Closed Sales) hit 3,581, which was a 10.6% YOY (Year-Over-Year) and a 0.9% MOM (Month-Over-Month) increase. The Median Sold Price* of $227,000 bested last June’s by 8.1% and beat May 2017’s price by 3.2%. Average Price Per Square Foot also rose compared to June 2016 (+10.7%) and May 2017 (+1.5%), as the price increased to $135 per square foot. The Average Sales Price to List Price Ratio held steady at 96.1% compared to June 2016 and declined slightly from 96.4% in May of 2017.

(MEDIAN SOLD PRICE – Median means “in the middle,” meaning that half of the homes sold above the Median Sold Price and half sold below it. For example, if 5 homes sold in a zip code for $200,000, $250,000, $300,000, $400,000 and $800,000, the Median Price would be the one in the middle. In this case, that would be the $300,000 home. In contrast, average selling price would just be the sum of the selling prices of the 5 homes divided by 5, or $330,000. Many real estate statisticians prefer median price as a better indicator of the “typical” price within an area or zip code. Why? “Outliers” or homes sold at an extremely high or low price — like the $800,000 home in our example — do not affect it as much.)

The Average Number of Days a home stayed on the market fell to 48 days, 12.7% lower than June of 2016, while the Median Days a home stayed on the market plunged 37.5% to 20 days. To get the Average Days you simply take the number of days it took all homes to sell and divide it by the number of homes sold. On the other hand, Median Days on the Market shows that half of the homes on the market sold in 20 days or less and the other half took more than 20 days to sell. Months of Supply, which measures housing inventory, dropped to 2.57 months, a 9.7% decline from June of 2016. It ticked up from 2.52 months compared to last month.

 

Bottom Line

The Greater Tampa real estate market continued its strong performance in June 2017. Increases in home sales, prices, and total dollar volume combined with decreases in housing inventory and days on the market indicate that demand is outpacing supply. The biggest concern is that dwindling levels of inventory (homes for sale) will eventually cause demand to drop off.

This is a great environment for those who plan to sell in the near-future. My advice is to do it now. If you wait, the strong demand may taper off some, which could affect the time it takes to sell your home, as well as the opportunity for peak pricing.

These are Tampa Bay’s most educated neighborhoods

The latest installment of American City Business Journals’ series on Money in America took a look at the affluence levels of 22,568 ZIP codes across the country. One commonly accepted principle is that higher levels of education relate to higher incomes.

Thinking of Selling? You Should Act NOW!

If you thought about selling your house this year, now more than ever may be the time to do it! The inventory of homes for sale is well below historic norms and buyer demand is skyrocketing. We were still in high school when we learned the concept of supply and demand: the best time to sell something is when supply of that item is low and demand for that item is high. That defines today’s real estate market.
