Hobe Sound, FL Real Estate News

After all the great news we passed your way last month about housing inventories continuing to drop across the market areas I service I could hardly wait to run the numbers when I finally got to the computer a couple days ago. Last month at this time we reported that Hobe Sound inventory levels dropped for the first time in four months.  So what has happened since then........   Well, I started off this month’s reports with the Tequesta market which had inventory levels remain steady and I thought I would let them bask in that glory overnight as the news is different in Hobe Sound For the fourth time in five months inventory levels increased again and are now at a new annual high. The net inventory of real estate currently for sale on our local Multiple Listing Service (MLS) in Hobe So...

Jupiter Island homes for sale are some of the most spectacular in the country, maybe the world.  It has long been a quiet enclave of old money who needed a sub-tropical hideaway where they could just be themselves. Lately the Island has seen its share of publicity with Tiger Woods, Celine Dion and Alan Jackson moving onto the Island.  Before they arrived though, Lee Trevino and Greg Norman were already there.  Trevino moved on, but Norman is still here and his home is still on the market after nearly 3 years. Now Jupiter Island real estate is very special and Norman owns perhaps the choicest piece of land up there.  His property was once owned by the Reed family that developed the Island so they had their pick of any spot to build and chose this one.  His property starts on the beach at...

      Pending and contingent home sales data are very important metrics when determining how strong real estate sales will be in the months ahead. I like to carefully review this information for each of the communities where I am most active on at least a monthly basis as it gives me a heads up on what the future might bring for my clients.    When a bilateral contract is entered into there are typically contingencies, historically mainly for home inspections and financing, but in today’s world more often that not they are short sales waiting for third party, or bank, approval. Once these contingencies are lifted the change should be properly recorded into the MLS system as “pending”. History  shows us that the large majority of pending listings will ultimately close, usually within the...

The market continues to be uncertain. There are lots of would be buyers waiting for the signal to buy, but are afraid of jumping in at the wrong time. Well, I think it's a good time and I am in the middle of negotiating a purchase for myself.

December single family homes sales in Hobe Sound were SPECTACULAR!     Welcome to our first sales report of 2011 and what a way to start off the new year. Interest rates were down the first week of the year and now I have the pleasure to report that December single family home sale in Hobe Sound jumped 100% from November levels. It also tied us for the highest sales month of the year with April when sales were boosted by the expiring tax credit. No boost here from the government just an incredibly strong month of sales. During December our local MLS system shows a total of 28 successful closings as of this mornings’ update. That compares with 14 sales in November and again a tie for the highest monthly total of 2010.  Sales last month were not only very strong but they were also spread...

      Welcome to the New Year of 2011. It should be an another amazing year for the local real estate markets and we look forward to bringing you the latest market statistics. Following the inventory levels is extremely important as it is the “supply” end of the equation that tells us where prices may be heading. As the supply of homes decreases and demand stays even we will see pricing increases. Tune in next week to see where prices have gone over the past year and you might be surprised.   The Hobe Sound Net Inventory Index decreased during December for the first time in four months, which is a most welcomed sign after the significant inventory increases we have seen since September 1st. The net inventory of real estate currently for sale on our local Multiple Listing Service (MLS) ...

Hobe Sound is an exurban area in southern Martin County near the Atlantic Ocean. It stretches along the coast between Port Salerno and Jonathan Dickinson State Park but does not include Jupiter Island. Its western border is not clearly defined though most development drops off only a few miles inland at Powerline Road.The name of Hobe Sound comes from the name of the Jove or Jobe Indians, one of the Native American groups that lived in the area before European settlement. The Spanish pronounced the name "Ho-bay," which has evolved into the current name "Hobe" (which sounds like "robe.") The earliest recorded European contact occurred in 1696 when a British ship, the barkentine (three-masted ship) Reformation, sailing from Jamaica to Philadelphia sank close to the shore north of Jupiter ...
