Home Sales In The Neighborhoods Of Ox Bottom
If you ever need to pull information from the Leon County Tax Assessors database of home sales for the different Ox Bottom Neighborhoods in Tallahassee, it can get a bit confusing. There are four "Ox Bottom" neighborhoods:
- Ox Bottom
- Ox Bottom Manor
- Ox Bottom Gardens
- Ox Bottom Reserve
So, as I'm doing my quarterly update on Ox Bottom in Tallahassee, I was trying to decide whether or not I should just lump them together or treat them separately. I know the correct thing to do analytically is to separate them as they are different neighborhoods with differing home sites, but being a staff of 1 makes that not feasible due to time constraints.
But I had to satisfy my curiosity regarding valuation and unit sales, so the following graph breaks out the four different Ox Bottom neighborhoods by number of existing home sales and average price per square foot since 1991.
Ox Bottom Home Sales
What we see in this graph above is that most of the sales are from Ox Bottom Manor and therefore if we combine the data, Ox Bottom Manor will dominate the results. There are so few units in Ox Bottom Estates and Ox Bottom Reserve that they most likely have little impact on the global report. So ultimately, most of the home sales in Ox Bottom come from Ox Bottom Manor and Ox Bottom Gardens.
This real estate graph does show that unit sales have fallen very far. Ox Bottom Manor home sales have dropped from an average exceeding 60 units per year to just 6 thus far through May! And counting all of the Ox Bottom Subdivisions, there have been only 7 sales through May, compared with a record of 80 existing home sales back in 1998 (entire year).
With so little data, it is hard to tell if the price increase is real or just a few "rogue" sales. I suspect that home owners are holding on to the prices in Ox Bottom and that is why we see such few sales. The real question will be weather or not they can hold on long enough for the market to come back and protect their values.
The Four Neighborhoods Of Ox Bottom Together
The next real estate graph shows all of the four Ox Bottom neighborhoods together as one entity.
Just as we saw in the previous real estate graph, unit sales have plummeted in the four neighborhoods of Ox Bottom. Sales for 2008 were down over 50% from the previous year, and 2009 looks to be the 7th consecutive year of falling home sales. This is different than much of the rest of the market, which saw increased home sales through 2005 or 2006, and then the reduction of sales.
I'm not sure if this unusual trend trend is due to the age of the subdivision, its price range, or what the cause could be. I would love to see any feedback from residents of Ox Bottom. With the rest of the market down and unit sales so low in Ox Bottom, I would worry about major price drops coming over the next year.
