WHAT THIS MEANS FOR GOLD COAST CONDO BUYERS
Lower inventory, rising sales and a higher average sale price as a percent of original sale price signal that the buyers market is over. You need to be ready to buy when you find a home you want. If you will be financing your purchase, get your mortgage pre-approval before you start touring homes. Contact me for recommended mortgage consultants. If you’re paying cash, get a proof of funds letter from your accountant or banker ready to go. Contact me to get started.
WHAT THIS MEANS FOR GOLD COAST CONDO SELLERS
If your home is priced right when it goes on market, it should sell in just over 2 months. The average days on market for condo pending sales in the Gold Coast was down 64% in August. It took an average of 64 days to sell compared to 180 days a year ago. Just because the market is improving doesn’t mean you should price your home above market. Most buyers finance their purchase. Your home will need to appraise for at least sale price for financing to be approved. The appraised value is primarily determined by recent comparable sales.
