The overall trend for the Daybreak real estate market was good in the 2nd quarter of 2019. Home sales prices were up across all home types, and this on the back of increased home sales. The downside is that homes were taking longer to sell. Daybreak’s focus on smaller more affordable homes probably helped the total sales, after all, it is easier to sell smaller cheaper homes.
I have noticed more builder spec homes coming on the market, which could have also impacted the total sales listed on the MLS, with builders more likely to list spec homes on the MLS than homes constructed with client contracts to buy.
