florida: Seminole County stats for October 2, 2007 proves to be dismal! - 10/04/07 10:39 PM
The fist week of October saw a dramatic slowdown in the Real Estate Market in Seminole County. Sales over the past 30 day period slowed down as much as 60% in some zipcodes like 32779 (Longwood). 
September is typically a slow month but this is unusual.  Seminole County (as a whole) went from 12.65 months of inventory last week to 19.26 months of inventory (a 52.26% increase in 1 week!).
These numbers should bounce back in October/November, however, the trend has been a decline at the end of each month followed by a slight bounce back.

Unfortunately we could not.  One property had 18 offers in the first day.
It eventually took 19 offers, 2 contracts, thousands … (9 comments)
