The lazy days of September

Things are quiet in Cocoa Beach this time of year. The students are back in class and our winter visitors won't arrive for a few months. The water is still warm, we've had great surf for weeks, the fall mullet run is on, the fish are biting and you can play 18 holes with a cart at the Cocoa Beach Country Club for a paltry $24.

These are just a few of the reasons why I love Cocoa Beach and why September and October are my favorite months of the year.

Our market is quiet as well. In the last 14 days we have had only 25 residential properties contracted in Cocoa Beach and Cape Canaveral. That is our slowest rate of the year by a good margin. Our inventory has reached a new record level as well. We have crossed the 500 level in MLS-listed condos with 150 of those priced over a half million dollars.
