Larry Mastropieri, top real estate agent in Boca Raton and the owner of The Mastropieri Group, recently delivered a comprehensive analysis of the Boca Raton real estate market as of April 1st. During his video update, Mastropieri compared current data with previous years to illustrate the market dynamics, highlighting significant findings and emerging trends.

Diving Into The Details

Starting with a striking 60% increase in the average sale price from March 2023 to March 2024, Larry quickly noted the necessity of cross-checking this with median sale price data, which showed a more moderate but still notable 24% increase. This discrepancy prompted a deeper dive into various data points to ensure a balanced view of the market.

Further investigation into the sale to original list price ratio revealed that homes are selling for approximately 7-8% less than their original asking price, contrasting sharply with the peak market conditions of early 2022, where homes frequently sold at or above the asking price. This shift indicates a cooling market, further supported by the increase in days on market—from an average of 35 days in 2022 to 67 days currently. This slowing trend was contextualized with historical data, noting that the days on market were higher in the past, reaching into the 80s between 2015 and 2019.

Additionally, Larry highlighted changes in inventory levels, pointing out a 36% year-over-year increase. However, he noted that inventory is still below the levels seen in December 2019. The analysis also included the current absorption rate, which at 5.71 months, suggests a transition from a seller's market towards a more balanced or neutral market.


Mastropieri's market analysis paints a nuanced picture of Boca Raton's real estate landscape, indicating a shift towards greater equilibrium between buyers and sellers, marked by a slowdown in price growth despite a still-active market. This detailed insight is crucial for both buyers and sellers to understand the underlying forces shaping the local real estate environment.
