Daytona Beach area home sales remained sky high in April.
An analysis of Daytona Beach Multiple Listing Service data by Wyse Home Team Realty showed that 527 existing single-family homes (detached) were sold in the Daytona Beach area with median home sales price of $295,000. That’s a 45% increase in total home sales and an 18% increase in the median sales price, compared to April 2020, when all but the state’s most essential businesses were shut down to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Total sales volume was up by nearly 68 percent in year-over-year comparisons.
In monthly comparisons, MLS reports show the median home sales price fell slightly, by just shy of 5 percent over march and home sales rose 1.5 percent during that time.

“Given the situation we were facing during April last year, it’s no surprised we surpassed those numbers in April,” said Daytona Beach Area Realtor Ron Wysocarski, broker and CEO of Wyse Home Team Realty in Port Orange. “The real estate market continues to move at a frenzied pace in Volusia and Flagler Counties.”
