Real Estate Insight
We asked a few local real estate experts to share their insight about the current Ponte Vedra Beach real estate market.
Realtor and Plantation Resident Tina Schneider explained, “The renovations and updating of the Plantation at Ponte Vedra Beach last year slowed homes sales, but there was an overall slow-down in the market from October to December 2016 in the Ponte Vedra Beach area. This does not appear to be a trend and may have been attributed to pre-election uncertainty and the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew. We are now seeing an increase in buyer traffic. There remains a 6 month supply of homes which indicates a good balance between supply and demand, although buyers in the lower segment of the market will notice a limited supply.”
For those thinking about listing their homes, Tina shared some helpful advice, “Most buyers today are looking for homes that are as “turn key” as possible or for a price that reflects the costs to update. I am often asked how much are homes going for per square foot. The answer is, not all square footage is created equal, upgraded square footage brings a higher value and those homes that are staged well will spend fewer days on the market.”
Cara Ameer, Broker Associate & Media Contributor elaborated, “Buyers are demanding more high quality finishes and fixtures than ever, particularly in the luxury market sector. The properties that are the most properly prepared and updated for sale are the ones commanding the most value and fastest marketing times in the Northeast Florida marketplace. Lifestyle and neighborhood amenities are also key with buyers relocating to this area. Club memberships are often as important as the home selection process itself. “
Cara, like Tina, also emphasized inventory. “On a national basis, this is the year of low inventory with properties selling at an accelerated pace in certain price ranges. The lower the price, the fewer supply of available properties, and the higher the price, the more inventory is available. In all of Ponte Vedra Beach there is approximately a 7-9 month supply of homes in the $500K-$799K price range and a 12-16 month supply of homes priced from $800K on up.”
