Jacksonville Beach and Ponte Vedra Beach Real Estate Market Report Fourth Quarter 2015

Posted on by Lisa Barton

The Jacksonville Beaches real estate market was again strong throughout 2015. Across the board indicators were positive for Jacksonville, Neptune, Atlantic and the Ponte Vedra Beaches. Here are some important numbers:

  • New listings climbed 9.7%, while closed sales rose 15.5%.  As a result the inventory of homes for sale continued to shrink as did the monthly supply of inventory.
  • As previously forecasted, median sales prices rose 5% across these four markets, from $291,000 to $306,000. Two markets, Atlantic Beach and Neptune Beach, saw year-over-year increases of 12.5% or greater, while Jacksonville Beach was up 2.7% and Ponte Vedra Beach declined by 2.5%. Even with the slight decline in average sale prices, Ponte Vedra Beach continued to have the highest median sales price at $431,000, versus $442,000 in 2014.  

Elsewhere in the Jacksonville Beaches, sales and price increases were also very positive:

  • South Ponte Vedra Beach down to Vilano (including Palm Valley) – new listings dropped by 4.2% while closed sales rose by 6.9%. As a result the inventory of homes at year-end was only 4.4 months. Prices remained relatively stable, with the average sale price up 1.5% from $399,000 to $405,000.
  • Ponte Vedra/Nocatee finished December very strong and also posted significant gains for the whole year. New listings were up 24.3% to 881, closed sales were marginally up 0.9%.  Median sales prices, however, were up 8.9% from $350 thousand to $381 thousand. Inventory is still very low at 2.8 months.
  • St Johns County/NW continues to be a very active growth area, with home sales up 8.9% to a total of 2,228.  Median sales prices of $265,000 were virtually unchanged, while inventory shrunk by 23.4% to 3.6 months.
