Last year communities quickly moved prices up in many areas to fit the improved buyer market...
January 2015 was a great month for builders because the buyers came out and did what they do best...buy. Perhaps people are afraid interest rates might go up, or whatever the reason, people are definitely interested in this early part of the year before the Spring season gets going strong.
Will prices move up even more like they did last year or maybe even down. It depends on the area and market pressures. Check with your local Realtors and read the experts updates like NAR (see reference below). NAR has projected that if inventory does not increase, home prices may continue up this year, but always check the most recent updates with your local Realtors and experts.
We have not been able to keep up with the price increases on our website since nearly all slightly moved up last year so always check the website of the builder for the most accurate prices.
Inventories of foreclosures continue to decline although they are still available.
Early Spring Update: A surge of buyers in January and February 2015 perhaps due to fear that prices will go up again from last year's increases. However, it is tricky because if prices get too high, buyers may stop buying and no one wants that.
Since interest rates remain low, this may be a good time to view communities or take a second look prior to any possible Spring price increases. Again, please check with local Realtors.
Note: We have noticed popular new communities sell from their lists before their model homes are built and lower-priced offerings go first. Contact communities early and get on the Interest List so you will be updated on the status. See our blog article about Top 20 Communities in Florida.
Rentals: Check with your local Realtor whether it is a good time to buy or rent since rents in many markets are increasing. Source: NAR
