Sanibel real estate blog: August Stats

Good news and not so good news with this month’s stats: Home prices are up but sales were down in August.

The median price for a single-family  home in Lee County rose to $ 182,500-that’s up 10.6% from last August’s $165,000. The number of houses sold dropped 2.8% from 1069 to 1039.

Without getting too analytical, partially the reason for fewer sales may be the lack of inventory in one part and in another: the  stat comes from resales and  not new home sales. New home sales have been going quite well in Southwest Florida- while not being included in that number.

August and September are traditionally a little off from a sales standpoint- but October is just around the corner and things will be happening again!
