The St. Johns County inventory of Single Family Homes, Townhomes, and Condominiums is currently very low. As of the end of February 2021 the inventory is 28.4% lower than February 2020. This is mostly due to our very fast rate of sale.
The biggest driving force behind our current market conditions come two categories: Days on Market and Months of Inventory. Homes are selling fast, on average in 38 days as opposed to this time last year at 82 days on market. At those current rates we have about 2 months of inventory left as compared the 6 months of inventory in February 2020.
Scarcity of inventory and high demand continue to drive prices higher. The average sales price in February 2021 was $389,933 which is a 12 % increase over February of last year. When looking at closed sales, countywide sales were up 13% as compared to the same period last year.
