Jacksonville FL Real Estate Improving?
After spending the past 3 days looking at homes from St. Johns County all the way to the Northern most end of Duval County, I am beginning to think that the market has picked up! I was pleasantly surprised to see that several of the homes we were interested in had gotten contracts in just the past 4 or 5 days. I'm not sure exactly what this means because I don't know what the homes "closed" at. I won't know what the homes sold for until they actually close in a few weeks. I also heard from several Realtors that I scheduled showing appointments with, that they have had a LOT of activity on their listings. I wonder if this means that we truly have finally bottomed out? I will say this, there continues to be new listings posted every night in MLS, and the prices continue to drop on homes already on the market. I don't know if the influx of new listings is just seasonal, or if it's people "testing the market" again. I'm anxious to see the numbers in a couple of weeks. When I find out what the homes sold for, I'll pass the info along to you. In the meantime, please take a minute to look at my listing on Ashglen Drive. I have a VERY MOTIVATED seller that is going to kill me if I don't hurry up and sell her home! Won't you help save a Realtor???
