12 year look at the St Croix Real Estate Market for the 12 month period ending 30 June

 

The last real estate boom on St Croix was 12 years ago –

The 2005 / 2006 period

 

Total number of properties sold

 

·         Residential – Good news! At 175 home sales, total homes sold during the past 12 months is the highest since 2006/2007. The lowest number of sales was 2011/2012, with only 90 home sales.

·         Condominiums – More good news! At 142 condo sales, this is the highest number of condominiums sold in a 12 month period since 2005/2006! The lowest number of condo sales was again 2011/2012, with just 42 condo sales.

·         Land – Land sales have not changed significantly for the past seven years. At 89 lots sold, this is a slight improvement and the highest number since 2009/2010. But this is only 29 lots more than the lowest number (2012/2013) and just 20% of the market high of 442 lot sales for 2005/2006.

 

Average sales price

 

·         Residential – Not such good news. The average sales price declined by more than $20,000, compared to the previous 12 month period. For the past six years, the average St Croix home sales price has been between a low of $336,000 (2013/2014) and a high of $392,000 (2015/2016)

·         Condominiums – The $189,246 average condo sales price was $30,000 more than the previous 12 month period. This is the highest average condominium sales price since 2011/2012.  

·         Land – Average lot sales price is unchanged from the previous 12 month period, at $75,822. The average land sales price has changed very little over the past five years, from a low of $66,800 for 2012/2013 to a high of $76,590 for 2015/2016.

 

Total Market

Number of properties sold x Average sales price

 

·         Residential – The total residential market is unchanged from the previous 12 month period; more homes sold, but at a slightly lower price. The total residential market, at $64.8 million, is about 2/3 of the market high of $93.6 million in 2005/2006.

·         Condominiums – Excellent news! At $26.9 million, this is the highest total market since 2005/2006 ($40.1 million) and $8 million more than the previous 12 month period. The market low was $8.8 million for 2011/2012.

·         Land – The total market improve by $2 million over the previous 12 month period, but is only 15% of the height of the market in 2005/2006.

 

Conclusion

 

Compared to 12 years ago, total St Croix real estate sales have decreased by 45% ($80.9 million)

 

Compared to the previous 12 month period, total

St Croix real estate sales have increased by $12 million for the period of July 2016 through June 2017

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

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

 

Residential

 

·         The lowest price range (under $200,000) increased each year through 2016 and more than doubled (from 14% to 32%) over the 7 year period. This price range now represents one third of the St Croix home market.

·         The second tier (($200,000 to $400,000) has consistently represented nearly 1/3 of all homes for sale on St Croix over the 7 year period. Nearly 2/3 of all homes for sale on St Croix are currently listed for $400,000 or less.

·         Over the 7 year period, homes listed from more than $400,000 have decreased by 20%, from 56% of the market to 36% of all homes for sale on St. Croix in May 2017.

Condominium

 

·         The lowest price range (under $100,000) has more than doubled over the 7 year period, from 9% of total market in 2010 to 23% of the total St Croix condominium market in 2017.

·         The second tier ($100,000 to $200,000) has decreased by 12%, when compared to May 2010, when this price range represented 50% of all St Croix condominiums for sale.

·         Condominiums listed for more than $200,000 now comprise approximately 40% of the total market, as they did seven years ago. In 2013, 2014, and 2016, this segment of the market represented only 30% of all St Croix condominiums for sale.

Land

 

·         The lowest price range (under $50,000) has more than doubled over the 7 year period, from 20% of total market in 2010 to 45% of all lots for sale in 2017.

·         The second tier ($50,000 to $100,000) has decreased by 11% over the 7 year period, from 35% of total market in 2010 to 24% of all lots for sale in 2017.

·         Lots listed for more than $100,000 have decreased by 13% over the 7 year period, from 45% of the St Croix land market in 2010 to 32% in May 2017.

Inventory Levels and Sales Projections

 

May Inventory Levels

7 Year Review

 

Residential

 

Residential inventory peaked in 2012 and has been steadily declining since then. Current inventory is slightly lower (20 homes) compared to May 2011.

 

Condominium

 

Condominium inventory also peaked in 2012 and has been steadily declining since then. Current inventory (81 condos) is less than half of the May 2011 condominium inventory of 194 condominiums.

 

Land

 

Land inventory peaked in 2011, steadily declining until 2014 and has continually increased since then. Current inventory is slightly lower (31 lots) compared to

May 2011.

 

 

May Pending Sale Levels

7 Year Review

 

Residential

 

Residential pending sales peaked in May 2015 (85 pending residential sales), at more than twice the May 2011 figure of 41 pending homes sales. The May 2017 pending sales figures were slightly lower, at 75 pending home sales, but still significantly higher than the 2011 trough 2015 May pending home sales.

 

Condominium

 

For the past 5 years, May pending condominium sales have been in the mid-20 rage, with the exception of May 2016, when there were 34 pending condominium sales in mid-May.


 

 

 

Land

 

Pending land sales (34 for May 2017) have almost returned to the May 2011 level of 35 pending land sales.

 

 

2017 Sales Predictions

 

Using the assumption that the first 4 months of 2017 is a valid predictor for the entire year.

 

Residential

 

The first four months predict there will be approximately 30 more homes sold than 2016 BUT pending sales tell a different story, so no prediction.

 

Condominium

 

The first four months predict there will be nearly as the same number of condominiums sold as in 2016 BUT pending sales tell a somewhat different story, so no prediction.

 

Land

 

Land sales have nearly returned to the 2011 levels! This is the segment of the St Croix real estate market showing the most improvement, but there is a lot of inventory to sell; the current rate of sales predicts about 20% of the inventory should sell during 2017.

1st Quarter Sales as Predictor for the full year

 

2017 is the 9th year of the St Croix real estate market “recovery” from the real estate boom years of 2006 through 2008.

 

The obvious 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

 

9 year period:

 

·         Residential inventory peaked in 2012, at 340 homes for sale, and has continually declined each year since. Current residential inventory levels are now lower, at 239 homes on the market, than at the beginning of the recovery in 2009, when there were 266 homes on the market.

·         Condominium inventory peaked in 2010, with 265 condominiums on the market. The current level of 97 condominiums for sale is the lowest inventory level of the 9 year period.

·         Land inventory also peaked in 2010, at 610 lots for sale. There was            a slight decline during the 2013 to 2015 period. Inventory is slightly lower than last year, with 528 lots for sale in March 2017.  

 

 

Residential Sales & 2017 Predictions

 

The number of units sold during the first quarter has consistently under predicted the total number of sales for the year. The average of the under prediction over the 8 year period is 20%.

 

The average 1st quarter sales price has, since 2012, been within 12% of the annual average sales price.

 

Here is the prediction for 2017 overall:

·         Total number of homes sold will be slightly over 200; this would most homes sold in any year since 2002, a 15 year high!

·         Average sales price will most likely be in the $350,000 range, about the same as 2016.

 

Condominium Sales & 2017 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.

 

Since 2012, the 1st quarter units sold have underestimated the annual total number of units sold by about 13%.

 

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

 

Here is the prediction for 2017 overall:

·         Total number of condominiums sold will be in the mid-160 unit range, based on the past 8 years. But there are fewer than 100 condominiums in the inventory – interesting!

·         Average sales price will most likely be in the $190,000 range, very similar to the 1st quarter average condominium sales price.

 

 

Land Sales & 2017 Predictions

 

The average under prediction of total lot sales for the 9 year period is 21%. However, the predicted annual number of sales, based on 1st quarter sales, is the highest on 9 years. A sign of market recovery!

 

On average, over the 8 year period, 1st quarter sales prices have underestimated the annual average sales price by 6%.

 

Here is the prediction for 2017 overall:

·         Total number of lots sold will be more than 100, for the first time in 9 years, and possibly as high as 130!

·         The 2017 average lot sales price may just top $100,000, which means that “big view” lots and acreage are finally selling!

Vacant land is not selling well on either island.

For 2016, the number of lots sold on St Thomas has decreased to nearly the 2013 level, while St Croix, with a much larger inventory, continues to slowly increase the number of lots sold.

11 year look at the St Croix Real Estate Market for the 12 month period ending 30 June

 

The last real estate boom on St Croix was 11 years ago –

The 2005 / 2006 period

 

Total number of properties sold

 

·         Residential – Good news! Total homes sold during the past 12 months is the highest since 2006 / 2007, at 163 home sales. The lowest number of sales was 2011 / 2012, with only 90 home sales.

·         Condominiums – At 107 condo sales, total sales are not quite as good as the previous 12 month period (2014 / 2015, with 121 condos closed), but respectable. The lowest number of condo sales was again 2011 / 2012, with only 42 condo sales.

·         Land – Land sales have been unchanged for the past 5 years, with just 60 to 71 land sales during the 12 month period.

 

Average sales price

 

·         Residential – Again, good news! The “average” home sale price is up nearly $50,000 from the previous 12 month period, at $392,184. The lowest “average” home sales price was 2013 / 2014, at $336,190.

·         Condominiums – “Average” condo sales price was about $9,000 less than the previous 12 month period, at $168,996, and has been in approximately the same range ($146,000 to $176,000) for the past 4 years.

·         Land – “Average” lot sales price was about $9,000 higher than the previous 12 month period, at $76,591. The land market is behaving similarly to the condo market, with little change over the past four years and average sales prices in the $67,000 to $76,000 range.

 

Total Market

 

Number of properties sold x Average sales price

 

·         Residential – More good news! At $63.9 Million, the total residential market is only about $2 Million below the 2006 / 2007 total market of $66.1 Million. Sadly, it is still nearly $30 Million below the height of the market in 2005 / 2006 ($93.6 Million).

·         Condominiums – At $18.1 Million, the total condominium market is $3 Million lower than the previous 12 month period. However, it is much better than the 2009 through 2014 periods and nearly as good as the 2007 / 2008 figure of $20.7 Million!

·         Land – At a total market of $4.7 Million, we’ve seen worse (2012 through 2014), but not much. The current total land market is approximately 10% of the height of the market in 2005 / 2006 of $45.6 Million.

 

Conclusion

 

Compared to 11 years ago, total St Croix real estate sales have decreased by 52% ($92.6 Million)

 

Compared to the previous 12 month period, total St Croix real estate sales have increased by $14 Million for the period of July 2015 through June 2016

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 6 years, using 15 May inventory levels.

 

 

 

Residential

 

·         The lowest price range (under $200,000) has increased each year and more than doubled (from 14% to 34%) over the 6 year period. This price range now represents one third of the St Croix home market.

·         The second tier (($200,000 to $400,000) has consistently represented nearly 1/3 of all homes for sale on St Croix over the 6 year period. Nearly 2/3 of all homes for sale on St Croix are currently listed for $400,000 or less.

·         Over the 6 year period, homes listed from more than $400,000 have decreased by 20%, from 56% of the market to 36% of all homes for sale on St. Croix in May 2016.

Condominium

 

·         The lowest price range (under $100,000) has nearly tripled over the 6 year period, from 9% of total market in 2010 to 25% of the total St Croix condominium market in 2016.

·         The second tier ($100,000 to $200,000) has decreased by 6%, when compared to May 2010.

·         Condominiums listed for more than $200,000 have decreased by 10% of the total market over the 6 year period, from 41% of total market in 2010 to 31% of the total St Croix condominium market in May 2016.

 

Land

 

·         The lowest price range (under $50,000) has nearly doubled over the 6 year period, from 20% of total market in 2010 to 37% of all lots for sale in 2016.

·         The second tier ($50,000 to $100,000) has decreased by 10% over the 6 year period, from 35% of total market in 2010 to 25% of all lots for sale in 2016.

·         Lots listed for more than $100,000 have decreased by 7% over the 6 year period, from 45% of the St Croix land market in 2010 to 38% in May 2016.

May Inventory Levels

6 Year Review

 

Residential

 

Residential inventory peaked in 2012 and has been steadily declining since then. Current inventory is slightly lower (11 homes) compared to May 2011.

 

Condominium

 

Condominium inventory also peaked in 2012 and has been steadily declining since then. Current inventory is significantly lower (80 condominiums) compared to May 2011.

 

Land

 

Land inventory peaked in 2011, steadily declining until 2014 and has continually increased since then. Current inventory is slightly lower (31 lots) compared to

May 2011.

 

 

May Pending Sale Levels

6 Year Review

 

Residential

 

Residential pending sales were similar for 2011 and 2012, also for the period of 2013 through 2015, after a significant increase. Current pending sale levels showed a huge increase in 2016, but closed sales continue at 2015 levels.

 

Condominium

 

Condominium pending sales have followed the same trend as residential pending sales.  Current pending sale levels showed a significant increase in 2016, but closed sales continue at 2015 levels.

 


 

 

 

Land

 

There have been no significant changes in the number of pending lot sales over the 6 year period.

 

 

2016 Sales Predictions

 

Using the assumption that the first 4 months of 2016 is a valid predictor for the entire year.

 

Residential

 

The first four months predict there will be approximately the same number of homes sold as in 2015 BUT pending sales tell a very different story, so no prediction.

 

Condominium

 

The first four months predict there will be approximately the same number of condominiums sold as in 2015 BUT pending sales tell a somewhat different story, so no prediction.

 

Land

 

Land is quite predictable. This market will show little improvement in 2016.

1st Quarter Sales as Predictor for the full year

 

2016 is the 8th year of the St Croix real estate market “recovery” from the real estate boom years of 2006 through 2008.

 

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

 

First, a look at inventory trends over the

8 year period:

 

·         Residential inventory peaked in 2012, at 340 homes for sale, and has continually declined each year since. Current residential inventory levels are now lower, at 259 homes on the market, than at the beginning of the recovery in 2009, when there were 266 homes on the market.

·         Condominium inventory peaked in 2010, with 265 condominiums on the market. The current level of 114 condominiums for sale is the lowest inventory level of the 8 year period.

·         Land inventory also peaked in 2010, at 610 lots for sale. There was            a slight decline during the 2013 to 2015 period; inventory is again increasing, with 546 lots for sale in March 2016.  

 

 

Residential Sales & 2016 Predictions

 

The number of units sold during the first quarter has consistently under predicted the total number of sales for the year. Right now, the prediction is for about the same number of home sales for 2016 as were sold in 2015.

 

The average 1st quarter sales price has, in most cases, been within 10% of the annual average sales price.

 

Here is the prediction for 2016 overall:

·         Total number of homes sold will be in the mid-140 range, very similar to 2015.

·         Average sales price will most likely be in the $400,000 range, about the same as 2015.

 

Condominium Sales & 2016 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.

 

Since 2012, the 1st quarter units sold has consistently underestimated the annual total number of units sold.

 

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

 

Here is the prediction for 2016 overall:

·         Total number of condominiums sold will be in the low-90 range, about 15% fewer than 2015.

·         Average sales price will most likely be in the $140,000 range, very similar to the 1st quarter average condominium sales price.

 

 

Land Sales & 2016 Predictions

 

Unfortunately, in 2015 the total number of 1st quarter sales exactly predicted the annual number of lot sales, quite a disappointment. The previous 6 years all exceeded the 1st quarter predictions for total number of lots sold annually.

 

The 2015 annual average lot sales price was also very close to the 1st quarter prediction.

 

Here is the prediction for 2016 overall:

·         Total number of lots sold will be about the same as 2015, about 64 lot sales.

·         The 2016 average lot sales price will most likely be a bit below the 2015 average sales price, in the $65,000 range.

Home Sales

St Thomas vs St Croix

A 13 Year Look

 

Total Number of Properties Sold

·         Over the 13 year period, more homes were sold every year on St Croix than on St Thomas.

·         Both islands saw a slight decrease in the number of homes sold annually from 2014 to 2015; 1% decrease for St Thomas, 8% decrease for St Croix.

·         The most homes sold annually for both islands was during the period of 2003 through 2007. St Thomas averaged 102 home sales annually during this period; current sales levels are at 92% of the height of the market. St Croix averaged 179 home sales during this period; current sales levels are at 78% of the height of the market.

 

Average Sales Price

·         In 2003, the average price of a home on St Thomas and St Croix were nearly identical ($416,250 for St Thomas, $415,390 for St Croix).

·         From 2004 until the present, the annual average home price on St Thomas has exceeded that of St Croix.

·         The average annual home sales price on St Croix for 2015 was 61% of the average annual home sales price on St Thomas.

 

Total Market in Millions of Dollars

·         This measurement is a combination of total homes sold and average sales price, so it gives the best overview of annual market performance.

·         For the nine year period of 2003 through 2011, with the exception of 2008, the total annual residential market on St Croix always surpassed the total annual St Thomas residential market.

·         For the past four years, 2012 through 2015, the annual St Thomas residential market has surpassed St Croix. The largest difference was 2014, when total St Thomas residential sales surpassed St Croix by $35 Million Dollars. For 2015 annual residential total market, St Thomas exceeded St Croix by $5.4 Million Dollars.

The St Croix Real Estate Cycle

 

A 13 Year Look

 

Total Number of Properties Sold

·         Fewer homes and condominiums sold in 2015 than in 2014

·         Number of homes sold during 2015 (140) exceeds all years since 2007 (177 home sales), except 2014 with 152 home sales.

·         Number of condominiums sold mirrors home sales; more condominiums sold in 2015 (108) than any year since 2006, with the exception of 2014 (121 condo sales).

·         Number of land sales was up slightly when compared to last year, with 64 land sales in 2015, but similar to the number of land sales since 2012.

 

Average Sales Price

·         The 2015 average home sales price ($403,550) shows an improvement over 2013 ($319,450) and 2014 ($332,950) and is very similar to the average home sale price of 2003 ($413,430).

·         The 2015 average condominium sales price ($192,440) is nearly $50,000 higher than the 2003 average sales price ($144,820) and exceeds the average condominium sales price for the past three years.

·         Only 2011, 2013, and 2014 saw lower average lot sale prices than the average 2015 lot sales price of $79,035.

 

Total Market in Millions of Dollars

·         Even though the number of home sales in 2015 were down about 7%, when compared to 2014, the significant increase in average sales price of about $70,000 resulted in an increase of $6,000,000 for the total home sales market.

·         Condominiums experienced a larger decrease in units sold when comparing 2014 with 2015 (10%) and a smaller increase in average sales price of about $50,000, resulting in only about a $1,000,000 improvement in total condo sales market.

·         At a $5,000,000 total market for land sales, only 2013 ($3.4 million) and 2014 ($4.1 Million) turned in a poorer land sale performance.
