For Sale vs Sold Properties in Coral Gables
An overview of how many properties were listed for sale as well as how many properties were sold per month in each price range.
The amount of homes for sale remained steady except for the homes in the $1M-$2M range, which saw a slight increase in the number of listings.
There is a high demand for Coral Gables homes in the price range of $500,000 – $1M, as we saw an impressive increase in the amount of homes sold. Sales in the other price ranges stayed considerably stable.
The Months of Inventory of Coral Gables Homes
The months of inventory is an important indicator in real estate. It indicates how many months it takes to sell all the current listings under the assumption that no new listings will enter the market. The Coral Gables market is showing a very low inventory.
Because the amount of listings remained steady and the amount of sold homes increased, we saw a sharp decrease in the months of inventory for the $500K – $1M budget category.
In general, Coral Gables homes below the $2M are in a sellers to neutral market. As can be seen from the graph below, the most affordable homes are currently experiencing a strong sellers market and so do waterfront homes in the price range of $1M – $2M. The Coral Gables luxury market (properties of $2M+) are experiencing a buyers market although this second quarter of 2015 showed considerably lower months of inventory than the first quarter.
Rules of Thumb
Buyer’s market: more than 9 months of inventory based on closed sales
Seller’s market: less than 6 months of inventory based on closed sales
Neutral market: 6 – 9 months of inventory based on closed sales
