Looking back at our year in real estate, 2017 has been an interesting one. The first 8 months was in line and on track with our previous years; inventory around 3000 and sales averaging about 1200 per month, then Irma came through and slowed things down for a few months. Fortunately Decembers numbers were the strong. Total sales for the county were 1,081 properties closed. Our inventory is at 3,096 that gives us a 2.86 month supply and an absorption rate of almost 35%. We were still down slightly for the year compared to 2016; less than 400 closings separated 2017 from the previous year.
Here are the numbers for 2017
