Median Price and Sales
The median price of the Single Family homes sold in Bonta Springs increased more than 80% from $409,900 in 2019 to $750,000 in 2023. Sales surged until around Q3 2021, thereafter returning to pre-pandemic levels in 2022 and 2023.

The median price of Villas (attached and detached) sold increased almost 80% from $308,500 in 2019 to $552,500 in 2023. Sales followed a similar pattern to that for SF. The decline was greater – but on a small number of sales.

The median price of Condos (and Townhouses) increased 85% from $259,000 in 2019 to $480,000 in 2023. Sales in 2023 dropped to a little below the pre-pandemic number.

Single Family Sales by Price
Another way to look at sales is the distribution by price.

In 2019, 69% of Single Family sales were under $500,000 and by 2023 that had dropped to just 15%. Conversely, the share of sales over $1 million went from 9% to 25% in the same period.

Villa Sales by Price
In 2019 78% of Villa sales were under $400,000 – and just 17% of sales in 2023. Conversely, the share over $500,000 went from 16% in 2019 to 68% in 2023.

Condo Sales by Price
The share of Condo sales under $400,000 dropped from 78% in 2019 to 30% in 2023. Meanwhile, the share of sales over $500,000 went from 17% in 2019 to 47% in 2023.

Price per Sq Ft (PSF) and Speed of Sales (Days to Offer Accepted – DTO)
PSF is another way to look at sales. For SFs the increase was 78% from `$207 in 2019 to $368 in 2023; for Villas, 81% from $188 to $349, and for Condos 96% from $166 to $325.

There was also a dramatic increase in the speed of sales, with the median DTO plummeting from 63 in 2019 down to just 8 in 2022 for SFs, from 54 to 6 for Villas, and from 693 to 6 for Condos.

Sales have been taking longer since Q3 2022, but they are still taking place more quickly than in the pre-pandemic years.

The following charts show that, while inventory (green line) has recovered from the extremely low levels of late 2021, it remains well below pre-pandemic levels. The number of months of inventory (how many months it would take to sell the current inventory – blue line) has followed a similar pattern.

This chart and table show median prices since 2000.The median price did not exceed the 2006/07 peaks until 2021 for SFs and until 2022 for Villas and Condos. While the market conditions are vastly different from the earlier period, the slope of the increases from 2001-2005 and 2019-2022 is eerily similar. Over the whole of this century, the compound growth rate has been 5.7% for SFs, 4.0% for Villas and 5.1% for Condos. Unfortunately, the price appreciation has come in violent bursts rather than steady annual increases.

The numbers have been dramatic over the last few years, for all the well-known reasons. With the market returning to more normal conditions, pricing and condition are again important. If you are thinking of selling, please contact me for a current market analysis for your property.
