Kristin added that the month-over-month number of $225.75 average price per sq. ft. was up 3.1% and year over year the market is up 16.7%. The average days to contract is 43.

Kristin asked Jeanine if these numbers are typical for this time of year. Jeanine said yes, from September through December things are slower. Kristin then asked Jeanine about the Saint Cloud zip code 34771.

Saint Cloud FL Zip Code 34771 Had The Most Homes Sold In November 2022

Jeanine stated that as usual zip code 34771 had the most sales with 71 properties sold in November. Of the 71 homes sold in November, 46 were new construction homes. She said sales were split down the middle as 35 of the properties sold were single-story at $243.70 price per square foot. The remaining 36 homes sold were two-story homes at $184.52.

Kristin stated that the overall month-over-month averages are down 2.4% on the price per square foot. The year-over-year numbers still have the market up by 3.4%. The average days to contract is 55 and the average days to close is 89. So, the days to contract is 20 days longer than it was last month.

Jeanine clarified that the days to contract are from the moment it is listed until there is a contract and days to close are from the moment it is listed until it closes.

Jeanine then moved to Saint Cloud zip code 34772 where there were 39 properties sold, 29 were single-story homes and 10 were two-story homes. The price per square foot of $225.36 was for the single stories and $202.54 for the two-story homes sold.

Kristin added that the overall average price per sq. ft. was $222.48 which is up 4.6% month over month and year over year is up 12.3%. The average days to contract for zip code 34772 was 47 and 95 days to close.

19 Homes Were Sold In St. Cloud Florida Zip Code 34773

For St. Cloud Florida zip code 34773 there were 19 homes that sold Jeanine said. Thirteen of the nineteen were single-story homes at an average price per square foot of $223.54 whereas the 6 two-story homes came in at $176.13 price per sq. ft.

Kristin stated that the overall average month-over-month price per square foot was $208.57 which is down 2.6% and year over year the market is still up 23.6%. She continued with the average days to contract which was 84 and the average days to close was 110.

Kristin went on to report that they combined all Saint Cloud FL zip codes, 34769, 34771, 34772, and 34773 and the average days to contract was 51 and the average days to close is 88.  What this means is for example if you needed to be somewhere by June of 2023, you would need to list your home by March to be sure you make it.

Jeanine and Kristin touched on how your home needs to be priced correctly if your goal is to sell it quickly. Jeanine said homes that are priced correctly will sell quickly. Homes that are priced too high will sit on the market longer. This is definitely a solid reason to have a good realtor by your side.

The average price per sq. ft. in Ashley Park, which represents condos and townhouses, was $167.64. There was only one resale which came in at $214.37 price per sq. ft.

Kristin then asked Jeanine how she was feeling about the real estate market. Jeanine answered that setting the expectation of the amount of time your home will be on the market is important. Also setting the price of your home correctly is essential. She said real estate is still selling and that things don’t sit still.  

Saint Cloud FL Realtors Need To Set Proper Expectations For Buyers and Sellers

Jeanine also said that she is seeing a lot more buyers in the market than what would be considered normal at this time of year. Kristin asked Jeanine how she felt about sellers and their expectations. Jeanine said that they are still lagging in catching up to the reality of the market.

Kristin commented on a question that Jeanine gets a lot and that is “what’s wrong with that house, it has been on the market for 90 days?” Jeanine said this past spring or summer that would have been a good question but right now, it isn’t because we are back to a normal real estate market.

Jeanine said right now it is about educating the sellers and buyers. She stated there is still a lot of equity in homes that grew over the last two years, but proper expectations need to be set. Both Jeanine and Kristin agreed that it is about helping home buyers right now as their affordability has changed and is lower. They stated that sellers can help with either paying down the rate or helping with closing costs.

Stay tuned for the monthly market report where Jeanine and Kristin will be going over the year-end real estate market report and looking at 2022 in its totality.

We hope you enjoyed Jeanine and Kristin walking you through the St Cloud FL real estate market report for November 2022. Our goal is to keep you in the know about the housing market and statistics here in Saint Cloud, Florida.
