Another Very Sweet Month to be a Jupiter Realtor


Local single family home sales soar to new record

If you run into a Jupiter Realtor these days you can be sure they have a smile on their face. A big smile. In fact, this Jupiter Realtor broke into a huge grin as I was finalizing numbers for today's article. You see I take great pride in knowing the market numbers and am confident saying you would be very hard pressed to find another Jupiter Realtor who studies them like I do. It's my passion to know these numbers like the back of my hand. Without this knowledge I could not make spot on recommendations to my clients. After all, they are trusting me with one of the most expensive purchases they will ever make in their lifetime. I take this responsibility seriously so I am always studying the numbers. Looking for signs. Don't call me a Jupiter Realtor call me a numbers detective.



Well I have to admit I was more than a bit surprised when putting today's article together and researching final numbers. I would have lost a big bet if I made one last night over a margarita. You see I knew pending home sales just dropped 10% to the lowest levels we had seen since February. I knew they had fallen for the third straight month and there was no way single family home sales could keep up the pace they were on. They had to drop last month and surely they would slow down for the next few months ahead.

But boy was I wrong and as I looked at the final numbers I was shocked. Not only did they not fall but they increased. Increased to the highest monthly total I have seen since compiling these numbers as a Jupiter Realtor. Not a big jump; only about 2.5% from the previous month. But a very solid 11% jump from 2013 numbers. And the most amazing number is sales of single family homes in the north county region from June through August were at the highest 3 month total we have ever seen. Ever. Like in history. Like including 2002 through 2005. Those numbers my friends are amazing. Blow you out of the water crazy amazing. They are that good. So when you see that Jupiter Realtor smiling you know why. Business is very, very, very good. Better than it has ever been. In history.

But I am going to wipe the big smile off my face and get back to the numbers. Sales have to slow. Inventory sucks. Finding homes for clients takes 100% of our efforts every day, every hour. Ask anyone working with a Jupiter Realtor to find a home what they are going through. There is a reason you want a Shark on your team. Always interesting, always fun.
