You are reading the April 2010 Real Estate Report for Alachua County & Gainesville. We take a look at activity and the strength of the real estate market each month and share what we see with you. The report comes from information that local REALTORS® update in the local multiple listing service and won’t include every single transaction in the County.
Overview: Property Sales in April
This year has been defined by the government incentives for real estate.
April was the deadline for buyers to have a contract if they wanted to qualify for the tax incentives from the government ($8,000 for first time home buyers, and $6,500 for move-up buyers). Surprisingly, many people did not wait until the last minute and actually bought their homes in March!
The number of sales dropped in April, but the number of pending contracts went up. We can expect to see these contracts closing in May and June.
The competition for homes seems to have driven up the list-to-sell ratio and dropped the average days on the market to only 78 (for homes that sold).
Also of interest, the 2010 average price is up compared to 2009 and April 2010 was down just 5% from April 2009.
Hopefully these sales will allow the people who need a larger home to move into the mid-range segment of the real estate market.
