In the realm of real estate, change is the only constant. As we journey through the periods from March 23, 2022, to March 24, 2023, and then to the subsequent year ending March 24, 2024, the narrative of each property type—Attached Single Unit, Condominium, and Detached Single Family—unfolds with its unique set of fluctuations and trends.
Attached Single Units: A Surge in Demand and Supply
The story begins with Attached Single Units, where each area tells a tale of growth and challenge. In 30A East, the Total Active listings jumped by 23%, indicating a surge in availability, matched by a 16% increase in New Listings. However, the area also saw a decrease in the Number Under Contract by 9%, and the Number Sold dipped by 14%, suggesting that while more properties were entering the market, not all were finding their way to closure.
30A West witnessed an even more dramatic shift, with Total Active listings soaring by 52% and New Listings by 44%. This remarkable increase in inventory availability and new offerings did translate into a modest 3% increase in the Number Sold, though the Number Under Contract remained relatively stable.
Destin's narrative is more subdued, with a modest 3% increase in Total Active listings and a slight decrease in New Listings by 24%. This suggests a market adjusting more slowly to changing dynamics, yet the Number Sold increased by 7%, indicating a healthy appetite among buyers.
Condominiums: The Rising Star
Condominiums, particularly in 30A East, have emerged as the rising star in the real estate constellation. Here, Total Active listings ballooned by 44%, and New Listings surged by 36%. Despite these increases, the Number Under Contract slightly decreased by 2%, and the Number Sold by 7%, painting a picture of a bustling market that's yet to reach its sales zenith.
30A West and Destin also saw increases in Total Active listings, by 5% and 16%, respectively, reflecting a broader trend of growing condominium availability across regions.
Detached Single Family: The Steady Contender
The Detached Single Family units' tale is one of steadfastness and resilience. 30A East again led with a 44% increase in Total Active listings, accompanied by a notable 36% rise in New Listings. However, similar to the other sub-types, this increase in market activity did not necessarily result in a proportional rise in sales, as evidenced by a slight decrease in the Number Sold.
30A West and Destin echoed this theme of growth in listings without a commensurate increase in sales, showcasing the nuanced dance between supply, demand, and market conditions.
In Conclusion
The past two years in real estate have been marked by significant shifts in inventory and activity across all property types and areas. While some regions have seen explosive growth in listings, the path from listing to sale remains complex, influenced by a myriad of factors from market sentiment to economic conditions.
As we move forward, the real estate narrative continues to evolve, with each area and property type contributing its unique chapter to the overarching story of change, challenge, and opportunity in the market. ??
