Panama City Beach Market Update - November 2023

October market stats are in and across the board, Panama City Beach is relatively flat from last year. Inventory continues to climb along with rising interest rates. Both average sale price and median sale are slightly down from this time last year. As we approach winter, we typically see the market slow down along the coast. If you are a buyer, this is the best time of year to negotiate a better deal. One bright spot in the Panama City Beach market this month is the 32407 zip code. They posted a 12% median sale price increase year over year.
With the new residential neighborhoods being built in Panama City Beach (Ward Creek, Margaritaville, Breakfast Point), it feels like we are seeing a tale of 2 markets. These neighborhoods, which have houses well below our average sale price, are still selling units, while it feels like condos and short-term rentals are sitting longer. The new construction homes in turn may be pushing our stats slightly down.
Another bright spot in our area is Santa Rosa Beach. This month they posted a year-over-year increase in average sale price of 30% and median sale price increase of 40%.
Moving forward I expect to see days on the market to creep up, inventory to keep climbing, and interest rates to stay higher for longer. Optimistically, I'm hoping interest rates will start to level off and decline by the springtime rush.
