The Coconut Grove Real Estate Report – Inventory levels in 2015 – 2016
Inventory of Coconut Grove homes for sale has been much lower than the rest of Miami in the last couple of years. The desirability of this small area within Miami created a demand which was absorbing the supply at a rapid pace. As can be seen from the graphs below, Coconut Grove Homes below the 1 million Dollar mark are showing the signs of a well balanced market tending towards a seller’s market. The $1M – $2M market was still a neutral market in 2015 but is now a buyer’s market. Many homes stay longer on the market these days, which influences the inventory, due to owners or realtors overpricing the properties. After the market saw rapidly increasing prices and an extremely low inventory in 2014 and 2015, many sellers are now asking prices that buyers are not willing to pay.
Rule of Thumb
- Below 6 months of inventory: More demand than supply, creating a seller’s market
- Between 6 and 9 months of inventory: A neutral market with a balanced relation between supply and demand
- More than 9 months of inventory: More supply than demand, creating a buyer’s market
