Florida Keys Real Estate Market Stats December 2019

Posted: January 09, 2020 by Amy Prumo & Thomas Carden Team


Be More Awesome than Last Year

Keys Wide Market Stats – All Properties
Overall sales are up 3.2 percent compared to the same time last year.  Looking back at the sales history you can see the Florida Keys Market remains stable.  Although sale price did fall 8 Percent.  As we have mentioned in the past, sellers have been forced to reduce prices in an effort to attract buyers.  In 2019 the average seller had to reduce their price by 9.5 Percent, which also represents the discount that buyers are receiving.  Days on the market remains around 4 months to get a contract.  The number of Listings are down 10 Percent.  When listings are down buyers have fewer choices and there is more urgency.  Remember Seller’s create the market.  Here in the Florida Keys there is an inverse relationship between Listings and Sales.  When Listings go down sales go up.  Listings show the future of what sales will be.

Luxury Market – 1 Million Plus Properties
Luxury Sales are up 8.7 Percent, which is about 30 more transactions than last year.  The number of Listings has slightly dropped keys wide.  The Middle Keys seeing the most significant drop down 11.8 Percent.  Days on the market is 133 days to get a contract.  Pending’s which are future sales are down 46.4 percent keys wide.  Buyers are getting about at 13.5 percent discount off the original list price. 

Coldwell Banker remains the number one company for properties listed and sold across the keys.  Looking from the Lower Keys to the Upper Keys, in the Luxury Market, Coldwell Banker Schmitt had 24.6 Percent transaction sides in 2019, which makes us involved in 1 out of every 4 deals.  The number two company came in at 7.9 transaction sides. Although there are several companies that advertise themselves as Luxury Real Estate Companies, the numbers show they are not!  Coldwell Banker Schmitt remains Number 1 in Luxury since 2004!
