Sales for August were down a little from July. That’s not surprising seeing those are contracts written over the summer. Ocala doesn’t have a true slow season like winter up north but summer sales are usually slower than winter and spring here.
As I keep saying the market is changing. We are no longer in a buyers market. I was recently trying to find someone homes under $100K in 55+ communities and had a hard time. As soon as a nice house got listed it had an offer in a couple of weeks. There was a time when cheap 55+ homes were a dime a dozen. Not only are they getting harder to find but prices are going up every time a new one gets listed. I think there are still deals out there just not below $100K. I just sold a 2006 house in Ocala Palms for example for $125K that I thought was a steal.
