Continuation of Seller’s Market at the Beach

Posted by Leslie Kopp & Christi Arndt on Monday, July 10th, 2023 at 10:00am

This is the time of year when we calculate absorption rates in order to understand whether we are trending in the direction of a buyer’s or seller’s market at the beach. We compare the pace of sales over the previous 12 months to determine how many Months Supply of Inventory is for sale.

Generally, a balanced market would have 7 months of inventory, more would be a buyer’s market and less a seller’s market. At this time last year, all areas were still in a seller’s market, but clearly the market had started to shift. We continue to stay just under a balanced market due to limited inventory and it remains an excellent time to be a Seller!      

If you would like to discuss the market in more detail as it relates to your property, please give us a call.
