BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Brevard housing market reported higher median prices, more new listings, and a rise in all-cash sales in August compared to a year ago.
“The current data shows that new listings continue to increase for single-family homes here on the Space Coast,” said Jennifer McCoy with McCoy Freeman Real Estate serving all of Florida’s Space Coast.
“However, new listings for condos is down over 2.8% and active inventory is down over 36%. This means we are still very deep into seller’s market territory and it continues to be a long road back to a balanced market.”
The median time to contract for single-family homes in 8 days, down 61.9% from last year.
Closed sales of single-family homes were up 7.9% compared to a year ago, which is impressive given the rate at which homes were selling at this time last year.
The market for condos and townhouses, however, remains the hotter market for now. August sales in this property type category were up over 11 percent year-over-year.
