Market Report Year over Year Comparison for the Pensacola Florida Area

Here is a look at single family detached housing activity in both Escambia County and Santa Rosa County Florida. This is the Pensacola Florida metro area. The reporting period is from August 1, 2020 to January 31, 2021.

Escambia County Florida

Santa Rosa County Florida

Now a look at the market back in February 2020.

I believe one of the reasons for less inventory is that current homeowners in Pensacola have very few choices to replace their current home. Price of new construction is through the roof and despite the record low interest rates many do not want to tack on a larger mortgage on their back. I feel this is especially true for those in that age group nearing retirement (within 10 years). Although seniors who are considering a sizeable downsize may see this as an ideal time to sell to replace their current living mode and cashing out their nest egg. There is always counteracting forces in play.
