The answer depends on the location. We all know that when it comes to Real Estate, location, location, location has been beaten into our heads. I have always maintained that if properties are on or very near the water in Florida, they are golden. Statistically, there are about 80 million baby boomers and 9 million of them will retire to Florida. That is a very large number and all of these folks will need somewhere to live. Brevard County, Florida, is unique in that the prices tend to mostly rise during the winter-resident (snowbird) season, which annually occurs between November and April. It is also the time when most properties are listed on the MLS. The fastest increase in values: Anything on the barrier island (Cape Canaveral any city with Beach in its name), Suntree/Viera, and parts of Merritt Island Melbourne. The least fastest: Titusville, Port St. John (nice, but not really a port), and Palm Bay. The latter group also means more affordability. Going back to the Winter-resident season, if you are in the market to either buy or sell, do so early because by the end of March the seasonal price increases have happened and there are few quality properties left from which to choose. Call or email me with questions or needs and be well.
