The Real Estate Market, One Bite At A Time

Image of One Bite A Time Tallahassee Real EstateAs we continue to get settled in on the new Tallahassee Real Estate Web Site, we hope to establish some great reporting patterns for our different readers to key in on. One big goal is to tackle a reporting schedule for all of the different housing reports that we maintain.

If you haven't checked out what we've done lately, you might be missing out on some good stuff! Click on the "Market Report" tab in the header any time you visit and it will take you to a section of our web site dedicated completely to real estate market reports.

We are going to try to deliver the housing reports "one bite at a time." In the past, we updated our twice-weekly housing reports as one long article with six or seven real estate graphs. It was most likely too much to digest at one time, so we are going to try a different format.

Every day, a new real estate graph will be featured, and a brief explanation will be included with the graph. If you want, you can go there occasionally and take in a few per visit. Or, you can just go there daily and see "what's new."

Keep An Eye On Housing Inventory

January 31, 2010 - Mark this date on your calendar! This is the day that we look to see the affect of seasonality in real estate change the flow of inventory in the housing market. Every year, the short-term trend shows inventory reduction change to a gain in inventory on or near this date.

If you caught our "small bite report" on short-term housing trends yesterday, then you already are keyed in to this. But there is a good chance that our current rate of sales might reduce the period of time that we add to the inventory, so our hopes are optimistic for a continuation of the recovery in the real estate market.

Real Estate Graph Of Short Term Inventory Trends In The Tallahassee Housing Market

The red area in the real estate graph above represents the homes coming on to the market, while the green area represents homes leaving the market (whether sold or just "quit"), and the yellow is the difference between the two.

When the yellow area is below zero, the inventory of homes for sale in Tallahassee is decreasing; when the yellow area is above zero, the inventory is growing. The graph shows that the trend in Tallahassee has been towards “reduction of homes” for much of the past 2 years.

Points A & B represent normal times of growth, but thus far Point C has not yet moved in the normal seasonal direction. This is good news for a market that still has too many homes for sale. Hopefully we won’t see many new home listings flooding the market and we can continue reducing the current inventory of homes for sale in Tallahassee.

Here in California, at least in the San Fransisco Bay Area, we cant get such definitive and precise graphs from our MLS. GosH! Maybe we should have Hurricanes rather than earthquakes. Ehjoyed surfing around your stuff. Thanks

Thank you for the compliments Michael. These graphs do not come from our MLS. I make them myself from data pulled from the MLS and other sources.
