Watercolor Real Estate
Watercolor real estate continues to escalate unlike sales prices in Rosemary Beach for October, 2015. Absorption rate actually went up year-over-year by 18.34% and stands up 6.17% for the year. This means it would take longer to sell the current inventory at this time than it did this time last year. Average list prices are up 19.29% year-over-year and 16.26% year-to-date and those prices are supported by average sales prices which are up 48.58% year-over-year and 27.27% for the year. Median asking prices are up 11.04% year-over-year and 8.95% for the year and again being supported by median sales price up 29.63% year-over-year and 21.72% for the year. Average days on market are down for this October vs. last by 4.55% but are up by 38.37% year-to-date with median days on market being down 40.68% year-over-year and up 33.33% for the year so over-all it’s taking longer to sell properties in Watercolor.
Closes sales were 11 for this October vs. 8 last year for a 37.5% increase and for the year we have 89 closed sales vs. 107 for a 16.8% drop year-to-date. Pending sales for October were 3 vs. 8 last year and 88 this year vs. 93 last year for a 5.4% decrease so it seems although prices continue to escalate volume is down.
