2009 Condo Sales Ormond By The Sea, Florida

2009 Condo Sales Ormond By The Sea, Florida

While the number of condos sold through the Daytona Beach Area Association of Realtors Multiple Listing Service in Ormond By The Sea, Florida (59) was higher than the total numbers in 2006 (43) to 2008 (41) it remains much lower than the average of 95 for the years 2000 to 2004 when the market was more “normal”.

Projecting the 59 sales per year forward would mean we currently have a year and a half of inventory, which is still very high and continues to indicate a buyers market.

A complicating factor could be foreclosures, which have shown no sign yet of slowing. There is a possibility that many more foreclosures will be coming on the market over the coming months since we are unable to close on many short sales.

New Ocean Front Park in Ormond By The Sea, Florida

Work has begun on a beachside park in Ormond By The Sea, Florida at Roberta Road on the east side of A1A. The site was the location of the Happy Whale Condominium and the Happy Whale Restaurant. Those buildings had not been well maintained for many years and were demolished in 2001 due to an accumulation of code violations.

Part of the same project includes approximately 1 acre on the west side of A1A at Carol Road that will provide additional parking for the park. Completion of the park, which has not yet been named, is expected this summer and possible as early as May 2010. Amenities anticipated at the park will be beach access, restrooms and showers. There will be no playground or picnic pavilions so if you are looking for those things you will need to go down the road a few hundred yards to Tom Renick Park. <br />
