The supply of Pensacola repo homes for sale, along with other types of for-sale houses in several areas of Florida, has been rising in the past two months or so. This comes after two years of steady declines in the inventory of houses for sale.

The number of repo homes in Florida, as well as new dwellings available for sale, has been cut almost in half within a 24-month period following the housing boom. This continuous decline has provided some positive news to the housing market of the state; just enough to give hope that a recovery is possible. However, the past 10 weeks saw inventories of for-sale dwellings inching back up, leading analysts to question the condition of recovery within the industry and the level of impact that foreclosures have on the market.

Listings of repo homes, particularly in the South Florida region, have expanded in the past few weeks. South Florida recorded a 4.6% increase in the number of dwellings for sale since the last day of May 2010. The recent surge in inventory marks the first increase since the housing market crisis started.

The rise in the supply of for-sale houses and condominiums in most areas of Florida, including Pensacola repo homes for sale, can push the prices of residential properties further down, analysts have stated. The trend has worried some market analysts despite the fact that buyers are purchasing homes in the state at a pace that is faster than the national level. Although home sales during the second quarter of the year rose by 27% when compared with the same period of 2009, real estate market experts are still worried about the rising inventory.

The current inventory trend can provide homebuyers with more choices and better leverage when it comes to negotiating prices. However, this could also lead to further drops in residential property values and in the average asking price for homes which could eventually lead to slower housing market recovery.

Real estate industry observers have stated that the increased number of Pensacola repo homes for sale and the rise in the number of other types of for-sale dwellings in most areas of the state can be partly due to banks increasing their efforts in terms of repossessing properties that have been in foreclosure for some time.
