Relatively Speaking...

March was a fair month for real estate sales in Cocoa Beach and Cape Canaveral. Unless, of course, you compared it to the halcyon days of March 2005. We had 28 MLS-listed condo sales (2 over $500,000) and 8 SF home sales (3 over $500,000) compared to 81 and 15 respectively in March 2005. Condos have averaged around 1 sale per day so far in 2007 with little variation while single-family home sales have been steadily increasing. At the current rate, we have a 19 month supply of homes and a 34 month supply of condos in all price ranges. If I isolate the $500,000 plus condo market, things are considerably less rosy. At March's sales rate we have an 85 month supply of half million dollar plus condos. Homes over $500,000 are in much better shape with only a 21 month supply.

Offshore fishing has picked up and the winds have finally eased off. Catches this week have included lots of wahoo and dolphin and some decent catches of grouper and snapper. A few boats have made the trek to the other side of the Gulf Stream to hunt for tuna. Most of them scored decent catches of yellowfin to 80 lbs. and smaller blackfins. I slipped out one day with a couple of friends and managed a small wahoo. Here is one of my favorite ways to enjoy wahoo.
