How these reports are made: Statistics are compiled by Realtors Association of the Palm Beaches using the BeachesMLS from the FULL previous month of properties. The sold data is released around the 22nd of each month. Therefore, the CURRENT May 2023 Market Report shows stats from the previous full month of April 2023 data.

Current Real Estate Market Report Summary

The Palm Beach County Market Reports of Single Family Homes and Condos for May 2023, with Stats and SOLD Housing Trends, was updated on May 18, 2023.

Homes in Palm Beach County are experiencing a 69% increase of inventory year-over-year with 3,642 active listings. The county’s supply of inventory reached 3.1 months compared to 1.4 months in 2022, a 121.4% increase. 

Inventory is the number of property listings that are active at the end of the month. Meanwhile, months’ supply of inventory is an estimate of the number of months it will take to deplete the current inventory given recent sales rates.

Median Supply of Inventory is a useful indicator of market conditions. The benchmark for a balanced market (favoring neither buyer nor seller) is about 5.5 months of inventory. Anything higher is traditionally a buyer’s market, and anything lower is a seller’s market. Therefore, a 2.9 months supply of listings means we are still in a strong seller’s market, yet gradually going slightly closer to a buyers market.

With moving season quickly approaching and Florida experiencing a high influx of new residents, it’s never been more of an important time to contact a REALTOR® to navigate the current marketplace. 

Buyers and sellers both can text or call 561-339-1779 to schedule a complimentary consultation with Doug or Jason Martin. Or if you would rather, you can Email the Martin Group. w

How’s the Real Estate Market in My Community?

Infographics below give a quick visual and answer the question of “How’s the Market?” by comparing the rate of sales versus inventory. The examples are for Palm Beach Gardens over an ten month time period… gradually going from a strong seller’s market in June 2022 to a slight seller’s market on May 18, 2023.

The number of sales in the Palm Beach Gardens real estate market has been cooling off a bit in the first quarter of 2023, as home prices have increased slightly, fewer number of homes have sold, less buyers in the market… plus taking longer to sell.

However, the market is still notably in the Seller’s zone and up one point from last month. It may take a few more weeks or months of less demand of homes for prices to begin dropping lower.

Inventory and sales are the key indicators! This month’s inventory of listings increased and closed sales decreased. Watch for a persistent up-turn in Market Action to signal prices rising again. Get the Housing Market Action Index for your city or zip code below.
