Happy Independence Day 2014

I can't imagine that it will come as any surprise to anyone familiar with the Cocoa Beach real estate market that June 2014 was another record month for closed properties. Not quite as many closed sales as May but it was the busiest June for closed sales in Cocoa Beach and Cape Canaveral since June 2005 with 64 closed condos and townhomes and 13 single family homes. That is as reported by the often tardy listing agents in the Cocoa Beach MLS. The number will likely increase as the slacker contingent drags back to the office next week and updates their listings. To put that in perspective, almost a quarter of the total condo listings in our two cities sold last month and slightly less than a fifth of all single family listings. Conservatively speaking, demand is far exceeding supply and the imbalance looks to continue. I will detail specific sales in a follow up post.

Hope everyone is enjoying the long holiday weekend and operating outside the stupid zone. Party defensively and point your fireworks down range.
