Sales of high-end, luxury homes in Northeast Florida continue to rise and many are selling at or near asking price. Waterfront and other luxury homes are seeing an increase of buyers and, in some cases where the home is priced well, these homes are receiving multiple offers.
The facts. Compared to the same time last year, sales for homes priced between $750,000 and $3 million showed a 16 percent increase, according to the latest year-to-date market report from the Northeast Florida Association of Realtors.
The results are even better at Prudential Network Realty where the company’s experienced Realtors are outpacing the local MLS by a skyrocketing 30 percent for homes in the $750,000 to $3 million category. With a history of success, the company continues to be the luxury home leader and the real estate company to turn to for expert assistance in Northeast Florida.
Market Momentum. The increase of high-end homes sales has created a decrease in available inventory, but buyers still have plenty of excellent choices, including oceanfront and riverfront properties. Listings are priced to sell and interest rates are still unbelievably low.
“The upper-end market has made a comeback, and we are seeing prices rise because of a lack of inventory,” said Christy Budnick, executive vice president of residential real estate, Prudential Network Realty.
Market Trends. The increased sales activity of high-end homes is just one of the positive trends taking place in the Northeast Florida real estate community. Year to date, Prudential Network Realty’s closed sales are up 46 percent over the prior year, far outpacing the Northeast Florida MLS rate of 23 percent for the same time period.
“Today’s competitive market requires more than dedication and experience,” said Prudential Network Realty Founder, President and CEO Linda H. Sherrer. “It requires proven expertise, a clear vision and tightly orchestrated teamwork. We provide it all at Prudential Network Realty.”

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (June 13, 2013) – Prudential Network Realty sales professionals Dennis and Kathy Lang, a husband and wife team from the company’s Beaches office in Atlantic Beach, recently participated in The Art of Yoga at the J. Johnson Gallery in Jacksonville Beach. The charity event raised more than $600 to benefit the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) Jacksonville’s Special Needs Tours.
“Prudential Network Realty professionals are very passionate about charitable giving and supporting the communities in which we work and live,” said Christy Budnick, executive vice president of residential real estate. “The generosity of Dennis and Kathy is inspiring. They use their yoga talent and expertise to support others and benefit the community at large in a very positive way.”
With a backdrop of paintings by J. Johnson Gallery featured artist Emilio Perez and accompanied by Jacksonville musician Arvid Smith, the Langs led a multi-level yoga class, integrating a graceful blend of balanced energy, awareness and alignment. The Langs are certified instructors of Yin and Vinyasa Flow Yoga and have practiced yoga for more than 10 years. They both completed their RYT 200- and 500-hour certifications at Asheville Yoga Center in North Carolina. They teach numerous classes and workshops in Northeast Florida, including charity-based practices, and bring a unique perspective to yoga instruction by co-teaching. Both the Langs and Smith were part of J. Johnson Gallery’s similar Art of Movement event last summer, which raised nearly $1,300 for the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens.
The Langs are also top producing agents at Prudential Network Realty and recipients of Prudential’s prestigious Honor Society and TeamBuilder awards. The Langs believe yoga is about relationships, and the practice of yoga inspires their collective energy, creativity and efforts to provide excellent service to their real estate customers.
“For us, yoga has become a source of inspiration, transformation and an offering we want to share with everyone,” said Dennis Lang. “Kathy and I are incredibly grateful to everyone who supported The Art of Yoga. Their generous donations will provide real benefits to our community.”
The Art of Yoga supported MOCA Jacksonville’s Special Needs Tours. MOCA Jacksonville carefully customizes guided tours, programs and art workshops to meet the special needs of individuals and groups of all ages, offering tactile bags for the visually impaired, iPods for sound amplification, sign language interpretation for all programs and tours, and adaptive materials for art projects. The Art of Yoga donation will help MOCA Jacksonville provide accessible and appropriate entry points into contemporary artwork and encourage participants of all abilities to engage in meaningful dialogues within the museum.
