Beachwood Real Estate – Monthly Marketing Report February 2009

February was a relatively calm month in the Beachwood real estate market.

Specifically, 5 homes officially sold last month compared to 6 sales in February 2008. However, a real indication of buyer activity is better measured by the fact that 5 homes went under contact in February. While most of these homes haven’t transferred, it is important to note that all of these homes went under contract over the last 30 days. This is a sign that there are serious buyers currently in the market to buy in Beachwood.

WHAT’S NEXT?

Right now, the inventory of homes is stale as very few new homes have come onto the market during the winter months. The serious buyers have seen everything in their price range and have not been overwhelmed enough by any of them to make a serious buying decision. These buyers typically have defined exactly what they want and are just waiting for the right home to come on the market. They are also watching to see if the price of a current listing decreases enough for the home to become more appealing.

The spring market is just around the corner and we anticipate a lot of homes coming onto the market in the next 60 days. Activity should really pick up from April -July as many buyers with school aged children will want to be settled into their new home for the start of the school year in August.
