February Lake of the Ozarks Real Estate Update


2021 Lake Market Remains Strong

     The real estate market in 2021 shows no sign of slowing based on the activity I am seeing so far in January.  I have broken down the numbers to give you an idea of how quickly residential properties are moving during what is traditionally a slower time for sales at the Lake.

     During the first four weeks of 2021, from January 1 to January 26, a total of sixty-two new condominiums or single-family homes were placed on the market.    It is possible that some of these were previously on the market and have been relisted but considering how strong sales are, I feel this would be an extremely small amount.  At this same time, one hundred sixty-seven listings were sold (closed) and two hundred twelve listings’ status was changed to indicate either a pending or contingent contract.

     Further analysis of these numbers shows that there were only five new listings of condominium units.  A total of forty-six condo units closed and sixty-two condo units had status changes to pending or contingent.  There are currently just thirty-two condos actively available.

     Single family home sales also remain vigorous.  Twenty-five offwater homes were new to the market in January, fifty-three offwater homes were pending or contingent and fifty-six offwater homes sold.  One hundred twenty-one offwater single family homes are now on the market.

     Homes with lake views and/or lake access amounted to twelve new to the market, twenty-nine pended or shown as contingent and fourteen closed.  Forty homes in the property type are currently available.

     Lakefront homes new to the market equaled twenty.  Seventy lakefront homes were marked as pending or contingent and fifty-one sold.  One hundred six lakefront homes remain on the market.

    All sales data obtained from the Lake of the Ozarks Board of Realtors Multiple Listing System for the time frame January 1 – January 26, 2021.
