Prices were down 2% compared to March 2018
Home sales were down for the third consecutive month across the Daytona Beach area in March, according to an analysis of Multiple Listing Service data by Ron Wysocarski, broker and CEO of Wyse Home Team Realty in Port Orange.
In March, the MLS reported that 435 existing single-family homes were sold in the greater Daytona Beach area, which includes Ormond Beach, with a median home sales price of $230,500. That’s s a 7% drop in sales compared to the same month last year and a nearly 2% decline in median prices.
Compared to February 2019, sales were up by 52% and prices were down by 2%. And year to date, single family home sales are down by more than 9% across the Daytona area, while prices are up by 3%.
“Home sales weren’t as robust as we hoped during the first quarter of the year, but there is still strength in the market,” Wysocarski said.
Inventory levels rose again in March. There were 75 more homes on the market than were available during February, and 7% more listings than were available in March of 2018.
