Another factor contributing to the desirable sellers’ market in Delray Beach is the amount of inventory available. Pending sales in the market continue to rise at 10.1% in Q2 2018, while pending inventory is decreasing in volume. With less inventory available, real estate transactions are closing at an average of 93.6% (+1.0% Y/Y) of the original listing price.
