Juno Beach and Jupiter Housing Market Scorecard Reveals Higher Housing Prices

Written By Joe Quirk

Today’s Palm Beach Post has a detailed  story on home sales in the 1st half of 2007 vs 2006.  The Post routinely puts a negative slant on the real estate industry, sales, construction, prices, etc.  This article is no different.  What’s funny about this particular story is that you don’t have to look to far to see some really great “positive” news.

Jupiter’s condo and townhouse markets are definitely down but look at the single family houses. Single family sales and prices are both up.

In conclusion:  The real estate market in the area will continue to ebb and flow over time. Prices in some areas will continue to go down while in other areas they will go up. Supply and demand will always impact the price of housing as it does in all commodities.

As a buyer, there are some great opportunities out there today. Pick your investments wisely and do your homework.

As a seller, depending on where you live (location, location, location!), “you will get more money for your house this year vs. last year!!!”
