The Keystone Point real estate market is cooling off a bit, similar to many areas around Miami.  What exactly does that mean?  It means we are not seeing a lot of sales.  This does not mean that prices are dropping or that it’s a buyer’s market – it means inventory is staying steady, prices are as well, and homes are taking a bit longer to sell.  It’s a textbook correcting market. Showings have also slowed down and talk among industry professionals about factors that we can attribute to buyers’ lack of urgency is the elections!  Of course I’m not one to blame everything on the elections, but I do think the whole world is watching and waiting. Another factor is media talk about another real estate bubble because of the amount of condo inventory.  That has all been debunked and although it’s normal to see highs and lows in real estate markets, there is no proof that the single-family home market, especially in areas like Keystone Point, was inflated or over-saturated.
