Sunny Skies Should Continue in New Albany, Ohio

Home Sales Up 29% YTD in New Albany I just pulled the Year-to-date statistics for home sales in New Albany and was very pleasantly surprised at how strong they are. Through May, 2011, 124 single family homes have sold in the New Albany Plain Local School District versus 96 sold through May in 2010. This is a remarkable 29% increase in homes sold this year over last. TY/LY sales for the Greater Columbus area are down 16%. Need Homes to Sell to Sustain Trend With this leap forward in home sales, and a large inventory of homes currently in contract, New Albany is positioned to have a truly excellent year. The only stumbling block that I see right now is if the low number of homes for sale is not replenished. Inventory levels are off significantly. In order to sustain the current trend, it’s time for the “don’t have to sell, but want to sell” sellers to re-enter the market. If you fit that description or are a “have to sell” seller, then we want to talk with you! Call or email us today.

What is a Buyers Agent?

I had a phone call from a gentleman this week asking if I was the listing agent for a home for sale in New Albany. I replied that I wasn’t but that I could help him as a buyer agent to which he replied, “What’s that?” It made me realize that as Realtors, we use a lot of terms that may not be familiar to those not in the business. So I took a moment to explain to him what a buyer agent is along with explanations of other common terms. Real Estate Brokers – Real estate brokers have a real estate broker’s license and operate a real estate brokerage. New Albany Realty is the brokerage that Kate & I work for. Realtors® – A Realtor is a licensed real estate agent who is also a member of the National Association of Realtors® (NAR). We are members of NAR® and thus, are able to call ourselves Realtors. Listing Agents – Listing agents are real estate agents who represent sellers, market their homes and work to get their sellers the best price and terms. In Ohio, with written permission listing agents may also represent the buyers for their listings. Buyer Agents – Buyer agents are real estate agents who represent buyers, help them find homes that meet their criteria, and work to get their buyers the best price and terms. We have 2 Buyer Agents on our team – Bev Klein and Laura Kohler. Bev and Laura are available to assist you with your home search so don’t hesitate to contact them.

New Albany Home Buyers Eliminate Many Homes For Sale

Today’s buyer has many choices of homes to choose from and has the ability to preview as many as their time allows. Using the internet, buyers can preview and “eliminate” hundreds of homes for sale. As they view these homes, they are looking for reasons to eliminate it from their list. The reasons are varied – they may think it needs too much work, is too small, don’t like the color it’s painted, etc. The reality is that the house may be a good fit for them and the reason they choose to eliminate it from the list could be easily rectified.

New Albany Real Estate Market Improves for 2010

A look at a few key metrics tell the story. New Albany Real Estate is on the rebound.
