As the 3rd quarter of 2012 draws to a close, we can report that the numbers of sales on the Sunshine Coast is up 5.5% over this time last year. However, we also note that prices across most categories have dropped 5 - 7%. How can sales increase, but prices go down? The market is largely driven by supply and demand. We still have a large supply of listings. Even though the demand has increased, it still has not reached a level sufficient to stabilize prices.
