Supply vs. Demand Chart

Egon Willy Kahl

Values of Bayfront Properties So far this year we have had increasing sales activity and a higher supply/demand ratio than 2009, and it appears the value of bayfront properties may be leveling off. The average sale price of bayfront property in 2010 has decreased in value approximately 22% since the peak years of 2004-2005. Bayfront data shows that values have decreased from 2005 to present based on average sales price. The average sale prices each year are as follows: $1,575,763 in 2004, $2,413,619 in 2005, $1,718,470 in 2006, $1,986,444 in 2007, $1,971,347 for 2008, and $1,669,938 for 2009 and 1,822,800 this first half of 2010. Our graph shows us these new values and how they increased from 2004 to 2005 and than slightly decrease over the years. My approximation for past sales concludes that bayfront values are up 350% since our country’s last depressions low values of 1992-1993.

SUPPLY VS. DEMAND CURVE BACK ON THE RISE This year, our new supply vs. demand ratio has hit .21, which is better than the 1992 to 1995 years, where we began to see leveling and even a slight increase in values. Last year supply vs. demand ratio of 0.15 on bayfront is the lowest it has been since I began documenting data. Simple economics states that if there is an abundance of a product (bayfront homes) and few consumers (Buyers) values will descend. It is when we reach an equal number of Buyers and Sellers that values become stable. When the product is scarce and the demand is high, values increase. During 2002 supply vs. demand ratio was the highest in 21 years. Currently there are 48 bayfronts available for sale, up from 45 last half of 2009. This is comparable to the ratios back in 1992 thru 1994, when prices were fairly stable and took a few years before seeing any appreciation. The number of sales on the bay has slightly increased this half from 9 average sales per half year last year to 10 this half of 2010. For greater detail of bayfront homes that have sold this year, see the next page of this report which is a spreadsheet created from the South end to the North end of L.B.I. For properties currently available for sale and for those under contract, please feel free to call me. I would be happy to e-mail, mail, or fax current Multiple Listing Computer detailed reports!

Bayfront Data Analysis and Conclusion In 1987, the sales market had peaked on LBI. Nearly six years later, I was selling waterfront homes for approximately 25% less than the 1987 climatic sales market. Properties began appreciating slowly from 1992 to 1998. In that seven year time period, the average waterfront home increased a total of 24%. Over the next seven years (1999-2005), they increased an additional 312%! We are now experiencing over five years of a declining LBI home sales market. Currently, I feel we are at a 20-22% depreciation from the 2004-2005 peak for waterfront properties and 25-30% for homes off the waterfront. From our 1987 peak, it took almost 6 years to reach the bottom, another 7 years (13 years total) to go back to the 1987 peak values and then an additional 6 years (about 20 years total) to more than triple the value! If the cycle of real estate values continues to rise and decline as it has in the past, we are approaching the time when values will have reached their lowest and will soon begin to appreciate once again.

Most Buyers are excited that they are able to afford a vacation home on LBI! With historically low mortgage interest rates and reduced asking prices, along with a variety of properties to choose from, it’s a great time to buy or sell here on LBI!
