Are you thinking about selling your home? Now is a perfect time. Homes are selling in hours with multiple offers for over the asking price in most cases. Inventory is at a career-low, with only ninety-two homes available in all of Port Orange. Port Orange is the most desirable city in Volusia County due to the area having the best school districts across the board, family-friendly neighborhoods, and proximity to all the recent fantastic growth! It’s a great time to be a seller right now!
One of the reasons Port Orange is so attractive to buyers is the city is the second safest in the state of Florida, according to SafeWise, a home safe, and security company. The average crime rate is 27% lower than the national average and is considered safer than 65% of all the cities in the United States.
Port Orange also contains a list of A-rated schools for those buyers who have children, which is another reason people find this city attractive. For example, Spruce Creek High School has been in the country’s top 100 high schools for several consecutive years.
The historically low-interest rates factors into the increased demand in the local housing market and gives buyers more flexibility in their budgets. Rates have been as low as 2.1%. Rates look to be continuing to stay low for the foreseeable future.
Florida’s weather has always been a draw for out-of-state buyers and is a transient state, but we have seen the number spike this year. Buyers are purchasing homes sight unseen for over asking price. They’re coming in droves from the Northeast and West Coast and want to take advantage of everything Florida has to offer. The proactive, business-friendly government Florida has demonstrated to be in the last few years has attracted new high-wage jobs for workers to compete on a global scale. So between the great, year-round weather and the job market, I do not see real estate slowing down anytime soon.
