Market [in a] Minute – July 2016

“Hey, John/Ashley! How’s the market?!” – The most common question consumers – future buyers and sellers alike – ask us about the local real estate market on a daily basis.

“It’s great! We’re busy! Inventory is low! Buyers are buying! Know anyone who wants to sell?” – Most common short answers we typically provide when we’re out and about, usually in line at the grocery store or in passing. Of course, when time allows, more detailed explanations, thoughts and answers are given and usually end up in great conversation.

*light bulb moment* – If everyone wants to know how the current market is doing and how it stacks up against this time last year, why don’t we put the facts together and share it?

Let us introduce… the “Market Minute”… last months hard number statistics compared to the same time last year. Facts directly from the MLS stating how our local Englewood, North Port, Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda markets are doing.

Market Minute 072016

The  Minute’s “key” (see what I did there?!):

  • “Avg. List Price” is the total amount of homes that were listed last month, their listing prices added together then divided by the amount of homes listed
  • “Avg. Sale Price” is the total amount of homes that were sold last month, their sold prices added together then divided by the amount of homes sold
  • “Days on Market” this is the average amount of days a home was on the market before it fully went under contract. It’s the cumulative amount of days starting from day 1 when the home was listed to day “x” where the home’s offer was fully executed
  • “Homes Sold” you guessed it, the total amount of homes that had the opportunity to put the desirable “SOLD” status on their property!

Want more specific numbers to your home or what’s going on in your neighborhood? Just ask, it’d be our pleasure to help you!

**All statistics are from the Mid-Florida Regional MLS and include ALL of Englewood, North Port, Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda, Florida**

A Community Comes Together, in Honor of Sgt Michael Wilson

There were many heavy hearts this week not only for the officers and citizens of Charlotte County, but for officers all over the state of Florida. A local hero, Sergeant Michael Wilson, was on a call for a domestic disturbance, was shot, and passed away in the line of duty.

Today, thousands of locals lined the streets off the procession route with signs and American flags to show their support as hundreds of officers, firefighters, paramedics and others drove the stretch of Sgt. Wilson’s district.

Our family has known the Wilsons for many, many years, as Mike (as many called him) grew up going to school with my older brother and my mother had all three of his children in class throughout their preschool years. We proudly joined along with thousands of our neighbors, as we watched the procession from the parking lot of HoneyBaked Ham in Port Charlotte.

Our favorite memory of Officer Mike will forever be when he pulled over my Nana for speeding on her way to church. He gave her a ticket instead of a warning, as he didn’t realize that she was the “Hall Nana” as he would called her, at the time. We’d laugh about this incident together for years and Nana would NEVER let him live it down. Needless to say, I think he was forever slightly afraid of this 90 year old woman.

In honor of Sgt. Wilson, here is a video (Sgt Mike Wilson’s Procession) of this overwhelming, yet powerful experience that exemplifies the true picture of patriotism and when people come together to support one another through tough times:

Although it’s an unfortunate time for us all to pull together, it reminds me of one simple thing about this wonderful country in which we live – freedom.

God, I love this country.

Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office has put together a donation fund to help financially support the Wilson Family
