New Albany McMansions…Are They Selling?

What’s Going on with New Albany’s Big Homes ?

People often ask me, “Wow, what’s going on the all the big $ Million homes on the market in New Albany, aren’t they selling?”  The short answer is yes they are.  But when we look back in time and dig a little we can see some interesting things emerge.

New construction vs existing home sales 2005-2009

Drill Down to the Detail

While there is no denying that a reduction from 23 homes sold in 2005 to 7 homes sold in 2009 is staggering, closer examination reveals that much of the fall off was in new construction.  The resale for large homes market didn’t really move that much; 5 to 4.  

Good News for Sellers of $1M+ Resale Homes? Yes and no.  

So far this year there have 5 sales In New Albany vs 7 for all of last year. There are far fewer new McMansions for sale with which to compete. But, as of this posting there are over thirty $1M+ available for sale.  Based on even the accelerated rate of sales for the first four months, that’s a 24 month supply of inventory.

Your Eyes are not Deceiving You

The large number of  $1M+ New Albany homes currently for sale might give the impression that sales are off.  But in fact, resale is slightly ahead of  historic levels.  It is the inventory level that is high.  Unfortunately, for those of us who own these homes, there will continue to be price compression until the inventory comes more into balance with supply.
