Lakeland Residential Weekly Market Report for 3/24/08-3/31/08 – Polk County, FL

Folks, as every week for the past weeks you will find my weekly report below to offer you with an inside on what is happening in the Residential Real Estate Market for Lakeland, FL. This report is by zip code and is in my opinion more accurate than measuring by school zones, since school zone changes are in progress and Realtors® not always input the school zones into the Multiple Listing.

Lakeland Weekly Real Estate Report 3/31/08There are currently 2388 properties for sale, which is a decrease of 52 listings reported the previous week. Last week’s average sales price increased modestly. However, the average sold price increased almost 20% compared to my prior report of the Lakeland Residential Weekly Market Report 3/17/08-3/24/08.

So far, for the month of March, the Mid-Florida Regional MLS reports that 25 homes sold in Lakeland were in foreclosure, pre-foreclosure, bank owned, and/or required 3rd party approval (short sale). The average sold price was $104,662 with an average of $73.65 per square feet. However, a total of 124 homes were sold by Realtors®, who had sellers that had not distressed homes; the average sold price for such properties were $182,390 with an average of $105.43 per square feet.

My weekly report is obtained from the Mid-Florida Regional MLS, it is deemed reliable but not guaranteed. This report does not include “For Sale By Owner”.
