Smyrna Vinings home sales jumped in September. Is this the typical early Fall jump before the holidays or a sign of continued growth? The Smyrna Vinings real estate market has been on quite a resurgence for the past couple years. With US home loan rates remaining low, we expect demand to remain strong and we expect to see a lot of move-up homebuyers taking advantage of the opportunities that 2014 will continue to offer. This chart shows you the past 12 months of home sales at any given point. As you’ll notice, the green bar is 2007 and we were selling a fair amount more homes in 2007. Sales dropped significantly in 2008, with the drop becoming more pronounced toward the last quarter of 2008. That would be the beginning of the financial meltdown. 2009 home sales started off about 32% off...

Let’s recap Smyrna short sales for August 2014 and it’s impact on the current market. It’s important to understand the influence that short sales have on today’s market and to keep an eye on the market. Also, keep in mind that the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act has not been extended. This really shouldn’t have any impact on short sales and foreclosures, but could create a political firestorm as forgiven debt is now taxable again. In August, Smyrna short sales activity was: 3 active homes 13 pending homes 0 closed homes 6 active condos and townhomes 11 pending condos and townhomes 2 closed condos and townhomes If you’re in the market for a Smyrna short sale, whether a single family home, condo or townhome, we’re here to help.

The Smyrna Vinings townhome and condo market continues to reach  new highs. Much like the Smyrna Vinings single family home market, Smyrna Vinings condo and townhome sales continue to be spurred by low interest rates. Sales are now higher than 2007 levels, which is a huge shift and double the sales from just a couple years ago. As you can see, we’ve been tracking the market for quite some time. We sell a lot of Smyrna Vinings homes, condos and townhomes and one of the major reasons is that we specialize in the area, we know the inventory of homes for sale and understand the trends, statistics and all the local pertinent information necessary for you to make an informed decision. The green bar is 2007 and we were selling a lot of condos and townhomes back then. Sales dropped continuously...

Smyrna GA Pending Home Sales Statistics by Price Range Smyrna GA Pending home sales statistics by price range.  Have you ever wondered what homes are selling in Smyrna GA?  What Cobb County home price ranges are most sought after?  Well you are not alone, but it is often hard to find this information, so I decided to create a chart to share exactly what homes are selling in Smyrna GA.  Yes mortgage rates are low, but many buyers in this market are being cautious and when purchasing a home are being conservative with their money.  Some Smyrna GA home owners are downsizing selling their large Smyrna Luxury Estate Homes and buying Smyrna GA homes.  Downsizing for many is a way to stretch their budgets and free up more capital for other uses.  It is actually a very sound idea.  If you are ...
