Well, the summer is rolling along and I am happy to report that business has picked up in Maggie Valley and Haywood County. There is not a gold rush atmosphere by any stretch of the imagination, but the phone is ringing, folks are walking in, and other agents are showing our listings. All good news, but you cannot help to be on pins and needles that it will all end tomorrow. As a company we continue to build our listing inventory both residential and land listings. Below is a look at the July numbers for this year compared to last year for Haywood County NC for residential sales.
7/1/08 - 7/31/08 7/1/07 - 7/31/07Total Closing: 53 68 Average Listing Price: $226,762 $260,109 Average Sales Price: $211,163 $248,423 List/Sale Ratio: 93.1% 95.5% Average Days on Market: 121 119 The big change from this year to last year is the prices. Yes, the sales volume is down, but the prices are also way down. Hate to beat a dead horse, but good rates, good prices, HUGE inventory! It may be the best time in our history to buy.
