Daytona Beach Home Sales Rose In September
Despite the continued drop in inventory levels Daytona Beach home sales remained notably high in September.
For the month ending on September 30, 2020, the Daytona Beach Area Multiple Listing Service (MLS) reported that 514 existing single-family homes (detached) were sold in the greater Daytona Beach area with a median home sales price of $276,000. That’s just a few sales shy of the number of homes sold in August, but an 18 percent increase over September 2019.
With the inventory of available homes for sale still running desperately low, the median price for homes bought and sold in September also was up, MLS reports show. The median sales price was near level with August, and it was 11 percent higher than in September 2019.
Year to date, home sales are up nearly 1.5 percent, compared to the first nine months of 2019. Meanwhile, the median sales price for the same period was up 7.7 percent over last year.

“Home sales typically fall slightly in September, but pent up buyer demand created by COVID closures and low inventory levels kept the market moving last month,” said Daytona Beach Area Realtor Ron Wysocarski, Broker and CEO of Wyse Home Team Realty in Port Orange, FL.
The area’s already low inventory levels fell further in September, according to MLS reports. The total number of homes listed was 30 percent lower than the number of homes available in September 2019.
