As of today there are 9 active single family homes on the market in Pelican Bay.

Between 2013 and 2014 every single building design saw an increase in price. The first six months of this year saw an increase in price in every building category except for attached villas.

It is apparent that Pelican Bay has a lack of inventory.  I looked back at some of my old blog entries and found this one from 2011.  In 2011, we were averaging around 14 months to absorb all the listings on the market.  Now we have a shortage of listings.

What’s causing this shortage of listings?  While prices have climbed up, some Residents are still holding onto units that they bought at the height of the market. Other Residents have decided to sell their Northern homes and live in their Pelican Bay properties. These scenarios have also contributed to the lack of units for rent and the increase in rental prices.

Pelican Bay is a beautiful place to live. The amount of inquires I receive from Buyers looking to purchase in Pelican Bay tells me that other people also believe this is a beautiful place to live.
