No snow in Florida

It's been a busy beginning to the year for me, but, my activity is not representative of our market as a whole. Our MLS backs this up, with closed sales continuing to slow even from the tepid pace in January. As I've been saying, our new MLS is still unreliable for statistics other than actual closed listings, so, I will continue to limit my stats to that number. For the first 14 days of February, 2006 we have had the following closed sales of MLS-listed properties in Cocoa Beach and Cape Canaveral.


The MLS shows 1079 active residential and condo listings but the actual number is probably 20% less than that due to duplicates and incorrect-status listings. Even with extremely slow real estate sales, Cocoa Beach is experiencing a busy snowbird season. Today is Tuesday and, according to the starter at the Cocoa Beach Country Club this morning, the first available tee time is next Monday. Go figure. With a forecast of mid-70s for tomorrow, I'll settle for a round on the mainland at the beautiful Viera East course.
