Changes in the St Croix Real Estate Market

Inventory levels by price range reflect the seller’s expectations.

The attached graphs compare changes in asking prices over the past decade, using 15 May inventory levels.

 

Residential

·         The lowest price range (under $200,000) accounted for about one third of the St Croix residential inventory from 2014 through 2018. This segment now represents only 16% of inventory. 22% of home sales on St Croix over the past 12 months were for $200,000 or less; 16% of inventory accounted for 22% of all sales.

·         The second tier ($200,000 to $400,000) consistently comprised one third of all homes for sale on St Croix over the previous 10 year period. This segment is now about one fifth of the inventory. 26% of St Croix home sales over the past 12 months were between $200,000 and $400,000; 21% of inventory accounted for 26% of sales.

·         Homes listed for more than $400,000 account for 63% of the inventory, about 7% higher than 10 years ago. During the past 12 months, this price range accounted for 52% of all homes sold.

·         Homes listed for more than $1,000,000 increased to 26% of the inventory (51 homes). During the past 12 months, this price range accounted for 13% (25 homes) of the total 196 homes sold. A significant change in the St Croix real estate market!

 

Condominium

·         The lowest price range (under $100,000) was 14% of condominium inventory 10 years ago; in May 2021 it was only 6% of total inventory. In May 2014, this segment accounted for 30% (nearly 1/3) of all condominium inventory.

·         The second tier ($100,000 to $200,000) has consistently included between one-third and one-half the inventory until 2019. In May 2021 this segment was 23% (about Ό) of total condominium inventory.

·         Condominiums listed for more than $200,000 increased to 71% of inventory, compared to 50% of condo inventory 10 years ago. In May 2013 and 2014, only 30% of the condominium inventory was listed from more than $200,000.

 

Land

·         The lowest price range (under $50,000) decreased 4%, compared to 10 years ago, from 23% to 19% of total inventory. In May 2017, this price range accounted for 45% of the land inventory.

·         The middle tier ($50,000 to $300,000) accounted for 65% of land inventory 10 years ago. In May 2021, this segment accounted for 64%, very little change.

·         Lots listed for more than $300,000 increased 4%, compared to 10 years ago, from 13% to 17% of total listing inventory. This is the highest percentage during the decade for this segment of the land inventory.

Inventory Levels and Sales Projections

 

May Inventory Levels

11 Year Review

 

Residential

Residential inventory peaked in 2012 with 330 homes for sale and declined through 2020. Current inventory of 102 homes for sale is only 31% of the number of homes for sale in 2012.

 

Condominium

Condominium inventory also peaked in 2012 with 230 condominiums for sale and declined through 2020. Condominium inventory reduction is even greater; current inventory of 44 condos is only 19% of 2012 condominium inventory.

 

Land

Land inventory peaked in 2011 with 575 lots for sale and slowly declining through 2020. Current inventory of 342 lots is 59% of the 2011 inventory.

 

May Pending Sale Levels

11 Year Review

 

Residential

May 2021 residential pending sales (94) are the highest of the 11 year period. Previous high was May 2016, with 85 pending residential sales, resulting in total sales for the year of 170 homes. Current pending residential sales (94) are 229% of 11 years ago (41).

 

Condominium

May 2021 condominium pending sales (42) are also the highest of the 11 year period. Current pending condominium sales (42) are 350% of 2011 pending condo sales (12).

 

Land

May 2021 pending land sales (88) are also the highest of the 11 year period.  Current pending land sales (88) are 251% of 11 years ago (35).

 

 

 

 

2021 Sales Predictions

 

Using the assumption that the first 4 months of 2021 is a valid predictor for the entire year.

 

Residential

The first four months home sales predict 183 home sales during 2021; pending contracts predict 188 home sales during 2021. Over the 11 year period, only 2018 (207 homes sales) and 2019 (197 homes sales) exceeded this figure.

 

Condominium

The first four months condo sales predict 177 condominium sales during 2021; pending contracts predict 186 condominium sales during 2021. These figures seem unlikely with 52 sales through April, 42 pending contracts, and an inventory of 44 condominiums, for a total of 138 possible closings if all available condos sold and closed before the end of the year.

 

Land

The first four months land sales predict 156 land sales during 2021, about the same as 2020. Pending contracts, however, predict 278 land sales during 2021, an 80% increase over last year.

April 2021

1st Quarter Sales as Predictor for the full year

2021 is the 13th year of the St Croix real estate market "recovery" from the real estate boom years of 2006 through 2008. The two Category 5 hurricanes in September 2017 and the 2020 pandemic were not helpful. Market is now showing strong signs of recovery.

The question is – what do the 1st quarter statistics predict about market prospects for the rest of the year?

First, a look at inventory trends over the

13 year period:

Residential Sales & 2021 Predictions

Until 2017 (Irma Maria Hurricanes), the actual number of homes sold annually exceeded the prediction based on 1st quarter sales. In 2018, 1st quarter sales underestimated actual number of homes sales by 40%. In 2019, 1st quarter sales slightly overestimated the total annual sales number. 2020 1st quarter sales prediction of only 104 home sales for the year underestimated the actual number (167) by 61%. The 2021 prediction is for 172 home sales, slightly higher than number of homes sold in 2020.

With the exception of 2009 through 2011, the 1st quarter average sales price was a fairly accurate predictor of the annual home sales price. The 2021 1st quarter average sales price predicts an annual average sales price of $216,000 more than the 2020 average home sales price of $475,303.

Here is the prediction for 2021 overall:

Condominium Sales & 2021 Predictions

This is a much smaller market, with just a few units built since the 1980s. It is more difficult to identify trends, because the sample is significantly smaller.

From 2014 through 2019 there were more than 100 condominium sales annually on St Croix. During 2020, there were only 84 condominiums sold on St Croix. First quarter 2021 condominium sales predict 152 condominium sales 2021, an 81% increase from the previous year.

1st quarter average sale price has, in most cases, overestimated the average annual condominium sales price.

Here is the prediction for 2020 overall:

Land Sales & 2021 Predictions

Both predicted and actual number of lots sold have been trending in the right direction since 2014. The 2020 prediction of only 80 annual lot sales underestimate actual sales (155) by nearly 50%. The 2021 prediction of 140 lot sales is likely to be an underestimate of actual.

From 2014 through 2017, the average lot sales price was in the $70,000 range, decreasing by about $10, 00 for the subsequent 2 years. In 2020, average lot sales price retuned to the low $70,000 range, as predicted by 1st quarter sales. The 2021 predicted average lot sale price is $108,335.

Here is the prediction for 2021 overall:

·         The average 2020 lot sales price ($73,602) is lower than 12 of the preceding 17 years. It is the highest average lot sales price since 2017 ($89,914)

 

Total Market in Millions of Dollars

·         The 2020 total residential market ($79.4 million) was exceeded by only two years on the previous 17 years - $85.3 million in 2006 and $79.6 million in 2019.

·         The 2020 total condominium market ($21.4 million) was exceeded by seven of the previous 17 years, included 2019 with a total condo market of $27.8 million. This is a 30% decrease, compared to 2019.

·         The 2020 total land market ($11.3 million) is the best performance we have seen since 2009 ($13.3 million). This market segment is moving in the right direction, but has a long recovery ahead.
