The Evans Report Shows Number of Residential Sales, Median Price Dropped in Town of Palm Beach During First Quarter


Published by Leslie Robert Evans & Associates, P.A., the quarterly report reveals a handful of homes sold above $10M in first quarter 2011 may have skewed data in first quarter 2012.

Palm Beach, FL, May 10, 2012 --(PR.com)-- When there is a low number of sales in a quarter, a few extremely high or low sales can markedly skew raw data when doing an analysis. According to The Evans Report: First Quarter 2012, this was the case in the first quarter of both 2012 and 2011.

With regard to single-family home sales, in the first quarter 2011, there were three (3) sales above $10,000,000 that averaged $18,174,691. In comparison, during the first quarter 2012, there was only one sale above $10,000,000, which was $10,350,000.

"Thus, the average sales were markedly affected by the three (3) high sales in the first quarter 2011," explained Leslie R. Evans, Esq., managing partner of Leslie Robert Evans & Associates, P.A (LRE). “Although the first quarter of 2012 was not strong, the second quarter has shown greater strength with an increase in both the number of sales and the sales prices themselves.”

Published every quarter by Leslie Robert Evans & Associates, P.A., a leading provider of the most comprehensive real estate market analysis for the Town of Palm Beach, The Evans Report illustrates quarterly, year-to-date, and quarter-to-quarter comparisons of single-family home and condominium/co-op sales.
