New Albany Real Estate Stats – Mid Year

New Albany Real Estate is Back! All I can say is Wow! Sales of New Albany real estate continues strong and bucking the trend in Greater Columbus. For the first half of 2011, unit sales of single family homes are up 20% over same time last year. Unit sales in the Greater Columbus area are down 15% for the same time frame. Will it continue? The number of homes “in contract” at the end of June are up 50% over last year which leads me to believe that the New Albany trend will continue into the 3rd quarter. These stats are pretty amazing considering the inventory of homes available for sale in New Albany is down 23% over this time last year. Sustainability of the trend will depend on if we can rebuild the inventory of homes available for sale. If you’ve been thinking about selling but have been holding back, it looks like now is the time to get into the market! Call Kate or Tony Thomas today!

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.
