Stirling Sotheby's International Realty has "Hot" Team in Volusia, Housing Market Makes Comeback in Area

ORLANDO, Fla....  Listing prices — the sale price of a home that’s posted when the home is listed for sale — is an accurate benchmark of perceived real estate values within a given regional market. And a recent study by shows that five of the nation’s top 10 markets for listing price increases are right here in Florida.

Roger Soderstrom, founder and owner of Stirling Sotheby’s International Realty, said for Rachel McGrath and Debbie Keilin, International Luxury Home Specialists at Stirling Sotheby’s International Realty in Volusia County, it’s already old news that the Daytona Beach region ranks eight in the nation for listing price growth.

McGrath and Keilin closed on eight luxury homes in April that totaled more than $3.5 million and averaged $440,000 each, Soderstrom said.

“We have been seeing a steady growth of our listing inventory as the housing market recovers,” McGrath said. “Sellers are more confident, past sales indicate that prices are due to rise, and we’re seeing more buyers who are ready to move up to nicer homes or retire from the north,” she explained.

At the same time, Keilin said all of their listings are globally marketed on dozens of luxury internet portals around the world.   

“We are seeing an increase in foreign buyer activity and it is becoming a significant part of our business,” she added.
