Inventory Levels and Sales Projections

 

May Inventory Levels

12 Year Review

 

Residential

Residential inventory peaked in 2012 with 330 homes for sale and declined through 2022. Current inventory of 90 homes for sale is only 27% of the number of homes for sale in 2012.

 

Condominium

Condominium inventory also peaked in 2012 with 230 condominiums for sale and declined through 2022. Condominium inventory reduction is even greater; current inventory of 26 condos is just 11% of 2012 condominium inventory.

 

Land

Land inventory peaked in 2011 with 575 lots for sale and slowly declining through 2022. Current inventory of 332 lots is 58% of the 2011 inventory.

 

May Pending Sale Levels

12 Year Review

 

Residential

May 2022 residential pending sales (59) are 63% of the number of pending sales when compared to May 2021 (94 pending sales). The average number of pending residential sales over the 12 year period is 64; the May 2022 number of pending sales (59) is slightly lower than the 12 year average.

 

Condominium

May 2021 condominium pending sales (42) were the highest of the 12 year period. Current pending condominium sales (32) are slightly higher than the 12 year average of 27 pending condominium sales.

 

Land

May 2021 pending land sales (88) were also the highest of the 12 year period.  Current pending land sales (79) are nearly twice the 12 year average of 40 pending land sales in May.

 

 

 

 

2022 Sales Predictions

 

Using the assumption that the first 4 months of 2022 is a valid predictor for the entire year.

 

Residential

The first four months home sales predict 219 home sales during 2022; pending contracts predict 191 home sales during 2022. Inventory levels of only 90 homes on the market suggest the lower number to be more accurate.

 

Condominium

The first four months condominium sales predict 171 condominium sales during 2022; pending contracts predict 121 condominium sales during 2022. Inventory levels of only 26 condominiums on the market suggest the lower number to be more accurate.

 

Land

The first four months land sales predict 216 land sales during 2022; pending contracts predict 230 land sales during 2022. With ample land inventory and dwindling home and condo inventory, it is entirely possible there will be 230 land sales during 2022, a level of sales not seen since 2008.

April 2022

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 inventory peaked in 2012, with 340 homes for sale, then steadily declined each year to the low point of only 85 homes for sale in 2022 with a slight anomaly of 172 homes for sale during this period in 2020.

·       Condominium inventory peaked in 2010, with 265 condominiums for sale, then steadily declined each year to the low point of only 46 condos on the market in 2019, inventory increased slightly in 2020 and 2021. The current level of 14 condominiums for sale is extraordinary!

·       Land inventory also peaked in 2010, at 610 lots for sale. Until 2020, land inventory was between 566 lots for sale and 443 lots for sale. This year there was a moderate decline in inventory, with only 351 lots for sale.  

 

Residential Sales & 2022 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 of 172 home sales was 27% low, actual number of sales was 219. The 2022 prediction is exactly the same as 2021 – 172 home sales.

 

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 predicted annual average sales price of $216,000 was about 12% low. The 2022 1st quarter prediction of $894,558 represents a 45% increase over the 2021 average sale price.

  

Here is the prediction for 2022 overall:

·         Total number of homes sold will be as predicted, around 172 homes.

·         Average sales price will most likely be in the $800,000 range.

 

Condominium Sales & 2022 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. 2021 was a record-breaking year with 162 condominium sales. First quarter 2022 condominium sales predict 152 condominium sales during 2022.

 

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

 

Here is the prediction for 2022 overall:

·         Total number of condominiums sold will be in the 100-plus range, far exceeding the number of condos currently for sale.

·         Average sales price will most likely be in the $300,000 range.

 

Land Sales & 2022 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 underestimated actual (192) by 37%. 1st quarter figure predicts 196 lot sales during 2022.    

 

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 was about 17% low. The 2022 1st quarter prediction is $109,034.

 

Here is the prediction for 2022 overall:

·         Total number of lots sold will exceed 200.

·         The 2022 average lot sales price will be in the $110,000 range.
