Real Estate Market Trends in The Bluffs:

A Reflection on 2023

The real estate landscape in The Bluffs underwent notable changes in 2023, offering insights into market dynamics and buyer behavior. A comprehensive analysis reveals a shift in key metrics compared to the previous year, reflecting broader trends affecting the housing market.

Overall Market Activity- During the year, a total of 81 properties were sold in The Bluffs, representing a 15% decrease from the previous year's figure of 95 properties sold. This decline can be attributed to various factors, including an overall increase in property values in the last few years and low inventory in some of the Bluffs communities.

Buyer Trends- One intriguing aspect is the prevalence of cash transactions, with a staggering 80% of buyers opting for this method of payment. The preference for cash transactions over financing signals strong buyers for the Bluffs communities.

Contract Timelines- Another notable shift was observed in the time it took for properties to go under contract. In 2023, properties were under contract within 48 days on the market, showcasing a significant increase from the 15-day average recorded in 2022. This extended timeframe suggests a more deliberate decision-making process by buyers or potentially a reflection of market conditions.

Challenges Faced by the Market- The dip in the number of resales across most communities in The Bluffs during 2023 can be attributed to escalating property values. This hurdle created a more competitive environment, influencing the overall number of properties changing hands.

Record-Breaking Sales- Amidst the challenges, some communities in The Bluffs saw noteworthy achievements in terms of sales records. Notably, a property in the Bluffs Ridge achieved a record sale at $1,600,000, the River $1,550,000, River North $505,000, the Lakes $540,000, the Bluffs Marina $750,000, and the Bluffs Ocean North $850,000, all setting new highs this year for their respected communities.

Conclusion- The real estate market in The Bluffs in 2023 demonstrated a nuanced interplay of challenges and successes. While overall sales declined, the prevalence of cash transactions and the establishment of new sales records in specific communities suggest a resilient market. As we navigate the ever-changing landscape of real estate, these insights provide a valuable glimpse into the factors shaping The Bluffs' property market.

Q: My home is listed with a real estate agent. I am under contract. The Buyer’s lender is requiring an appraisal. As the Seller, can I speak with the appraiser before, during, or after the appraisal?


A: The role of the appraiser is to provide an independent and impartial analysis of real property. An appraiser’s client is the person or entity ordering the appraisal. Typically, the Buyer’s lender is the party that engages the appraiser and orders the appraisal. Notwithstanding, anyone with an interest in the property (owner, tenant, real estate agent, etc.) can communicate with the appraiser before or during the appraisal process. Obviously, those communications cannot coerce, intimidate, bribe, or harass the appraiser into making or changing a valuation.


Interested parties, including agents, may talk with appraisers and provide additional property information, including a copy of the sales contract for purchase transactions.


If a Buyer, Seller, or agent disagrees with the appraiser’s valuation of the property, they generally cannot speak with the appraiser post-appraisal without permission from the client (again, usually the lender). If, after the appraisal is complete, a party wants to communicate a fact or comment to the appraiser, the party can use the lender as an intermediary to make that communication.


Because of the difficulty in challenging an appraisal, we advise our clients to provide all relevant information to the appraiser prior to the appraisal. Especially when it comes to information that is not readily available in the public record. Information commonly provided to an appraiser prior to the appraisal would be deeds, surveys, association documents, floor plans, comparable property sales, upgrade information, remodel information, improvements of any kind, etc.

If you have any questions regarding Florida association laws, contact a real estate or condominium law lawyer to better understand your rights and/or obligations.
