Upward Housing Trend Continues: Sunshine Coast Real Estate Market Update May 2014

Hello everybody!

May was another great month for detached sales on the Sunshine Coast!  Attached sales were up too and the land only market is holding its own.  Lets break it down.

Detached Home Sales

Detached sales for the month of May enjoyed a total dollar volume of  $32,294,000 which is a whopping increase of 35% over last May’s total dollar volume of $23,755,000.  Units sold are up 20% with 64 sales over last May’s 53.

Year to date results are also on good footing with an increase of total dollar volume of 14%.  So far this year we have sold $87,210,000 worth of detached homes compared to last year’s total of $75,892,000.  Year to date unit sales are also up.  We’ve sold 200 units so far whereas last year we were at 177.  This is an increase of 12%.  The average price per unit is up 1% from $428,000 to $436,000. Available inventory is also up 8% from 705 available homes last year at this time to 765 available homes presently on market.

Attached Home Sales

Attached home sales are doing very well too.  For the month of May we had a total dollar volume for condos and town homes at $3,861,000 compared to last May at $2,660,000 for an upswing of 32%!!!  Units sold in May totaled 11 compared to 8 last year.

Year to date numbers are a little more conservative but nonetheless very bright and reason for optimism.  Total dollar volume this year is at $13,530,000 compared to last year at $10,150,000 representing a boost of 25%.  Unit sales are very close to that percentage with 46 units sold so far this year and only 37 sold at this point last year for a difference of 19%.  The average price per unit is $291,000 which is up 7% from last year’s $272,000.  Available inventory right now is 164 units whereas last year we were at 175.

Land only sales are down ever so slightly by 3% from $845,000 last May to $815,000 this May.  Units sold this May were 4, last May enjoyed 5 sales.

Year to date dollar volume is down 8% to $4,138,000 this year compared to $4,500,000 last year. Unit sales for the year are 21 compared to last year’s 20.  The average price per unit this year is $197,000 compared to $225,000 last year for a difference of 12%.  Available inventory for land is now hovering at 441 units down 8% from last year’s 480.

Busy Spring…Is the trend continuing?

Traditionally, May is one of the strongest selling months on the Sunshine Coast, and this is the second month in a row that we have seen significant gains in both dollar volume and units sold.  Dare I say we are seeing a trend….Maybe it’s a bit early to say but it looks good.  Will next month see us come down slightly, as is tradition, or maintain a steady upward gain?  Stay tuned and find out!
