Daytona Condo Market Starts Year Strong
The new year brought a strong start to the 2021 condo market across the Daytona Beach area.
An analysis of Daytona Beach Multiple Listing Service (MLS) data by Wyse Home Team Realty showed that 138 condo units were sold around the Daytona Beach area in January with a median sales price of $258,500. That’s a 25 percent increase in condo sales over last year. The number is down from sales in December, a typical market trend for the start of a new year in Daytona Beach. Sales volume was up 60 percent during January compared to the same month last year.
The median condo sales price also was up in annual comparisons, by a notable 30 percent. And the median sales price rose by 3 percent from December. This, as inventory of available condos remained at rock bottom levels. In January, the number of available condo units rose slightly to 672 units active during the month. That is 15 units more than were available December, but it’s still 33 percent lower than the 1005 available condo units in the Daytona Beach MLS during January 2020.
“We continue to see the local condo market moving and thriving, despite the difficult inventory conditions,” said Ron Wysocarski, Broker and CEO of Wyse Home Team Realty in Port Orange. “The Daytona Beach condo market is off to an impressive start for 2021.”
