Tallahassee Monthly Lis Pendens Filings March 2013

New lis pendens filings in Tallahassee fell 30% in March when compared to March 2012, and foreclosures rose 269%.

Fewer Short Sales In Summerbrooke Home Sales Report

I am expecting to see a rise in the number of Summerbrooke home sales this year, as values have dropped to a level that is going to attract new buyers.

Just as all Tallahassee neighborhoods have declined, Summerbrooke is dealing with values that are 33% below the levels found at the peak of the housing market, and I suspect these will be too good for buyers to pass up.

Declining Values Continue For Summerbrooke Home Sales

Summerbrooke home sales are still recording declining values and the number of sales has remained lower than historical averages.

Tallahassee House Sales Show Steady Growth

Tallahassee house sales are picking up steam, and we have set a new high water mark for the first time in nearly five years.

While unit sales are still far below the level that we saw in the 1990s (the gold line in the graph on the right), we are finally seeing daily closed home sales exceed all previous levels during the real estate market recovery.
