Jupiter home prices down in July
July is always an interesting month when it comes to single family home prices in the Northern Palm Beaches. It always falls after June, that almost always is the month where the highest number of single family home sales close in the Jupiter area. Sales usually take a steep drop in July. This year the drop from June to July was 24%. Last year the drop was 32%. The year before 25%. You get the picture.
Whenever we see a dramatic one month fall in sales volume we expect some volatility in median sales prices. It can be either up and down. In 2016 the median single family home price in the Northern Palm Beaches moved higher by 4.3% in July. They were up again last year. In 2013 they were down and the same was true in 2014 and 2015.
So, it really should not be a huge surprise that as of August 1st we have seen a fairly significant $13,000 drop in the median single family home price over the past month. The drop takes the median price of a home in the Northern Palm Beaches to $480,000 and that is the lowest they have been since way back on March 1st.
So far in August, we are seeing pricing pressure for single family homes to be moving higher but we still have 3 weeks to go. Interest rates are down 5 basis points this week which is great news for the housing market.
