Brevard County showed a 2.32% increase in the number of total properties (single family, condo & townhouses) sold in May 2012 compared to May 2011. And, we noticed an impressive increase of 10.20% in average sales price from last year to now. We are still experiencing an uptick in our market. And, we are finding that clean, well priced properties are moving off the market quickly. Our inventory of homes for sale is still dwindling.

We are still finding a high number of investors in the market, scooping up properties, in multiple offer situations with cash. Our second/vacation home market is still moving along briskly. Brevard County is still a favorite destination for those buyers moving south, or just looking for a vacation home, because our great weather, the Indian and Banana rivers and the beautiful sandy beaches. There are also some nice tax incentives here in Florida. (Please consult a CPA or tax accountant for more info on taxes.)

Earlier in the year, we found that snowbirds were coming out of their rentals to buy a property for next year. Most of them have gone back up north, as we have seen our temperatures slowly inching their way up. Although much needed rainfall has kept the temperatures from being sweltering hot. Our snowbirds will be back in the Fall.

Today, Brevard County prices are still proving to be quite affordable compared to neighboring cities in Florida.
