BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Brevard’s housing market continues its momentum in March, with more closed sales, higher median prices, more new pending sales and increased pending inventory compared to a year ago.
The coronavirus was first detected in Florida on March 1, 2020.
“This spring is very different than this time last year. Buyer demand is intense and our low inventory is creating many bidding wars which are challenging for potential homebuyers,” says Jennifer McCoy, broker/owner of McCoy-Freeman Real Estate serving all of Florida’s Space Coast.
“Unfortunately, there aren’t enough homes available for sale to meet the overwhelming level of demand especially here on the Space Coast,” says McCoy.
Available single-family homes for sale in Brevard were down 65.9% compared to this time last year.
The Brevard median sales price for single-family existing homes was $280,000 up 7.9% from the previous year. Last month’s Brevard median price for condo-townhouse units was $220,000, up 7.3% over the year-ago figure.
According to Freddie Mac, the interest rate for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 3.08% in March 2021, significantly lower than the 3.45% average during the same month a year earlier.
