Real Estate Market Update for Winter Haven, FL
Welcome to August's Market Update. Let’s take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of July. The number of active listings was down 17% from one year earlier, and down 8% from the previous month.

Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was up 6%. This higher number of days may signal a slowdown in the local inventory-turnover rate.
