 Do you have potential buyers who are reluctant to jump into the Stuart real estate market? This is happening everywhere as the millennial generation starts to feel the urge to settle into their own place. The Stuart homes for sale market is not any different. The 20- to 30-somethings have held off investing in real estate properties and are wanting to know what they should do next to actually start the process of moving toward homeownership.  If you have a few interested lookers who haven’t quite decided what to do, then why not help them by advising on how they can start to prepare. There are a few things they can do ahead of time before they ever look at properties.

Take a look at the graph below and you will find in Stuart Florida in the month of June 2016 the pending sales is trending down and is well below the 12 month average.  So as a potential buyer what does this mean? When pending sales (under contract but not closed yet) trend down this typically is a great buy signal.
