Inventory is down, but prices are anemic in the Treasure Coast. For the year, single-family home sales fell 6%, but the median price stayed level at $108,200. Condos saw just a slight dip in sales volume and a 6% rise to $85,600 in median sales price. “It’s stabilized,” says Sarah Taylor of RE/MAX Masterpiece Realty in Port St. Lucie. Taylor reports seeing a fair number of out-of-state people in their 50s buying now while prices are low. Buyers plan to rent their new purchases until they’re ready to retire.
