Local Real Estate data for SW Florida

– September 2021 data

The Numbers:

Median Sales Price: The median sales price of single family homes in Lee County FL has steadily increased since April of last year.  However, the median sales price decreased from the month before 2% to $415,000.  This is still up 20% from this time last.  Condos are also down about 1% from last month, but up 25.4% from this time last year.

Inventory of Homes: The inventory of all the homes that are currently on the market continues to steadily decrease over the past many months, as buyer demand outpaces the number of new listings.  The current number of properties on the market is down 29.7% from last month, and down an astonishing 71% from this time last year. 

A 5.5 to 6 months supply of inventory is considered to be a balanced market. We are currently at a 1 month supply of inventory making this a strong seller’s market.

Days on Market: As expected, with strong demand coupled with fewer homes to show each buyer, the result is fewer days on market for each property before receiving an acceptable offer and thus going under contract. The current “days on market” across all property types is just days.  This is down from 40 days a year ago.

New Pending Sales vs New ListingsThe balance of supply and demand is the primary driver of prices and how fast inventory is sold.  New pending sales currently are at 4,813 units in our MLS area (primarily Lee County FL). New listings are only at 3,419 units.  Demand continues to outpace supply by a considerable amount.
