Number of Homes Available in the Pensacola metropolitan area:
At the end of June Pensacola Multiple Listing Service (MLS) database showed:
- 3,341 active listings active in Pensacola MLS (Escambia & Santa Rosa Counties)
- 1,327 listings listed currently under contract (as contingent or pending.) Some of these may fall through due to inability to get financing or not passing inspections, but this is certainly a sign of continued recovery in our local market.
Number of Homes Sold in the Pensacola metropolitan area:
June 2013 - 489 June 2012 53May 2013 - 576 May 2012 452
April 2013 - 490 April 2012 438
The average days on the market for listings has decreased with 136 days on the market compared to 166 days on the market in May 2012.

Home Prices in the Pensacola Real Estate Market:
Homes sold in all price ranges and locations including Pensacola Beach, Pace, Milton, Gulf Breeze, Navarre, Cantonment, Perdido Key, Beulah, and of course Pensacola. A piece of land sold in Pensacola as low as $3,000 while a 6,000 square foot waterfront home in Gulf Breeze sold the highest at $1,300,000.
Other Important Factors:
Last Friday, interest rates jumped up almost a percent which marks the biggest increase in years. Interest rates are creeping up (as are prices) so if you have been on the fence about whether to buy or sell it may be time to jump into the Pensacola Real Estate Market.
Those who need to sell in order to move may consider taking a small loss on the sale of a smaller home to take advantage of the still low prices on new construction or upscale resales.
|Many homeowners are choosing to|
rent their home instead of selling.
The Pensacola Rental Market is thriving! Rents are increasing. 3 and 4 bedroom rental homes are in high demand. There are currently 7 times as many homes for sale in the Pensacola area as there are for rent. Rents will continue to rise as supply is low.
