December was a good month for sales but that isn’t a surprise seeing it is the beginning of snowbird season. Active listings dropped just 50 units from last month. Foreclosures and short sales are pretty close to what we saw in November. This was the first year since the crash in 07 that sales didn’t drop off during the summer. Sales for me were steady all year long. I think we are starting a recovery although it is some what weak. One interesting note on sales below $100K. I sorted them by sales price and there are a surprising number of sales below $30K, mostly older homes in need of a total remodel or older mobile homes. These sales bring down the average sale price in our MLS and give a false impression of the market.

Now is the time to buy before prices go up. Call me, email me or use my Ocala Dream Home Finder.
