Market Update The second quarter sales volume continues to show a slow and steady recovery of the Northern Palm Beach and Martin Counties. The asset correction seen over the past 5 years is turning the corner and showing signs of stability and improvement. While lending requirements are still strict, the regulatory environment has certainly helped the real estate market recover by lessening its involvement. Nationally, many markets are experiencing pricing that is only 40%-50% of pre-bubble prices, so there is a long way to go. Locally, we are seeing closer to pre-bubble pricing, however. With the improvement in prices, more homeowners are coming into equity positions and less are considered underwater on their mortgages. We will likely see 2 and a half more years before the remainder of underwater sellers are out from under their upside down mortgages. We invite you to preview our quarterly report for further analysis of how various areas in our markets performed. Please feel free to contact one of our professionals for any assistance as you evaluate your own real estate plans this year.

Single Family Homes Harbour Isles, North Palm Beach

Although the number of transactions remained relatively the same, sales prices for single family homes gained significant momentum in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the second quarter of 2012 in both Palm Beach and Martin counties. While this may seem reminiscent of the boom years, sellers should understand that the fundamental principle of properly priced homes is true now more than ever. Stricter mortgage guidelines allow for only a small appreciation of home prices year over year to be tolerated by lenders. While the single family home market in Palm Beach County only increased approximately 1% in total number of sales, the average sales price increased by over 27% from Q2 of 2012. Average days on market decreased from 135 to 118 year over year. Cities showing the largest increase in the number of sales included Jupiter, Tequesta and Wellington. Compared to Q2 2012, Martin Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s number of transactions increased by 5% and the average sales price increased by 7%. Average days on market for single family homes decreased from 145 to 133. Hobe Sound and Jupiter Island both saw large increases in average sales prices.

Condominiums & Townhomes

Old Port Cove, North Palm Beach

Northern Palm Beach and Martin Counties condominium and town home sales displayed consistent progress when comparing the 2nd quarter of 2012 to the 2nd quarter of 2013. What has become abundantly clear in this new market, is that turnkey condominiums, which include nicely decorated properties with up-to-date systems and structures, are the most highly desired properties and command the highest prices in their range. Buyers have become increasingly discriminating and cautious buyers are keeping a close eye on valuations. Similar to the single family numbers, Palm Beach County condo and town home sales decreased by less than 1% but average sales price and average price per square foot increased by 24% and 24%, respectively. Much of the city data shows decreases in the number of sales which indicates a shortage in inventory. Cities showing the largest increase in the number of sales included Palm Beach Gardens and Juno Beach. Compared to Q2 2012, the number of transactions in Martin County increased by 18% and the average sales price increased by 8%. Average days on the market decreased from 141 to 131 days. Hobe Sound saw significant increases in both the number of sales and average sales prices.
