“September home sales were definitely lower than in August,” said Daytona Beach Area Realtor Ron Wysocarski, Broker and CEO of Wyse Home Team Realty in Port Orange, FL. “But that’s expected. A sharp drop in single family home sales is typical in September, as local students and families are busy getting settled into a new school year.”

The total number of homes that were active on the MLS at some point during September was down by 3 percent in monthly comparisons, and down 5 percent in annual comparisons. Year to date, the inventory of single family homes listed on the MLS is up, but only by about 2 percent.
