Daytona Beach Real Estate Sales Report

The Daytona Beach Area Association of Realtors has published the November sales report and it looks as though there has been strong improvement in our marketplace.  Pending sales are up by 11.4%, and so are closed transactions by .8%.  An important number for sellers is this - the Inventory of homes for sale is down by 34.7% creating less supply and hopefully moving us into a higher demand marketplace.

If you're looking to buy or sell, please don't hesitate to call on us.  We're happy to help.

                          New survey shows Port Orange residents would rather own than rent

                          Among the findings of NAR’s “American Attitudes About Homeownership” survey:

                          • The vast majority of both home owners and renters say that owning a home is a smart decision over the long term. Even in today’s challenging economy, 95% of owners and 72% of renters believe that over a period of several years, it makes more sense to own a home. Now is a great time to own a home in Port Orange.

                          • Enjoy a fabulous quality of Port Orange life. Home owners are much more likely to be satisfied with the quality of their family and community life than renters. While more than half of owners (56%) are “very” or “extremely” satisfied with the overall quality of their family life, only about one-third (36%) of renters report the same levels of satisfaction. Also, 43% of home owners are “very” or “extremely” satisfied with their community life, compared with 30% of renters.

                          • Do you want to be happy with your decision to buy in Port Orange? Call the Mark Card Team. An overwhelming majority of home owners are happy with their decision to own a home. A full 93% of owners surveyed would buy again.

                          • Most renters aspire to home ownership. The majority of renters (63%) say they are at least somewhat likely to purchase a home at some point in the future. Among them, young adults (18- to 24-years-old) have the strongest aspirations for home ownership.
                          The survey also confirmed that home owners and renters continue to have concerns about the economy:

                          • In today’s market, many aspiring home owners face worries about job security and credit worthiness. Among renters who are “very” or “extremely” likely to buy a home in the future, three out of five consider confidence in job security or creditworthiness to be an obstacle.

                          • Home owners and renters both believe that the mortgage interest deduction should not be targeted for change. 74% of owners and 62% of renters say it’s “extremely” or “very” important that the MID remain in place.
                          Given the strong public support of and aspirations for owning a home, we need to keep in place policies that support and encourage responsible, sustainable home ownership.
