Today I am going to be talking about a few areas of Ocala experiencing a little heatwave on our “Trend Maps.” Something we have not been experiencing for the last couple weeks here in the Horse Capital of the World, Ocala, Florida. What are trend maps? A trend is a general direction something is going and combined with a map provides a look at “Sales Activity” based on zip codes. The statistical data is overlaid onto a map and provides a more visually geographical representation compared to simple data chart. The trend map included here shows the “HOT” areas for “Sales Activity” right now are 34472(Silver Springs Shores), 34476(Shady Hill area, Ocala), 34481(Leroy area, Ocala) and 34491(Summerfield.)
I also thought it would be interesting to look at the median DOM(Days on Market) to contract, for these same zip codes. Notice the trend for most of the zip codes have gone down from the same time last year. The only zip code experiencing a longer days on market is Silver Springs Shores area due to the higher foreclosure rate and over supply. So we are seeing these areas experience higher sales activity and less days on the market to contract. If your a seller it is a great time to “SELL.” If your on the fence about selling it might be time to talk to a great local REALTOR, me, and find out if the time is right for you. If your a buyer and you want to buy in one of these zip codes, It’s time to get with your preferred lender, get on the phone, text or email me.
