32308 Housing Report - Home Size
The average size of homes sold in the 32308 zip code has been soaring lately, with well-funded buyers going after the larger homes which have fallen in value. This trend is not unique to the 32308 zip code, as homebuyers in Tallahassee are still seeking value, even as they begin to spend more money.
Don't be confused by the fact that buyer's are able to purchase "more home" for the money due to lower interest rates, as the balance of real estate supply and demand is still strongly in favor of the homebuyer. Home values will continue to decline until the market finds equilibrium (the normal balance between buyers and sellers).
