October Market Update

Here are the Prudential Market Updates for Buckhead and Vinings in the month of October:

Sales in Buckhead have dropped month over month and year over year. I believe this is primarily due to decreased inventory, but it is also a seasonal adjustment. As a result with 6 years of inventory available, sales are slowing and inventory is climbing in the the over $2M market.

Vinings remained steady with a much higher increase in sales price.  I believe that is primarily due to the higher end homes (at and over $1M) moving again at a great pace.  Many of those homes had been on the market for quite a while, but with no new inventory coming on the market, I believe buyers finally picked from what existed versus continuing to wait and hope for what they wanted to come on the market.  We had a great flurry of the newer high end homes sell this spring and finally this fall the remodeled high end homes have gone under contract.  That could partially be due to the sellers compromising further in price as well.

I’m including more specific Vinings data from another source as well that I find to be interesting.

Under $800k

Location:   ZIP 30339
Price Range:   $0 – $799,999
SQFT Range:   0 – No Limit
Property Types:   Residential Detached – All Properties – All Properties
Bedrooms:   0 – No Limit
Full Baths:   0 – No Limit
Half Baths:   0 – No Limit
Year Built:   0 – No Limit

Under $800k

Look at the balancing of inventory to demand that has taken place over the past year in Vinings under $800,000. Inventory has steadily declined and transactions have increased.  This is great news as well. It shows us that homes in 30339 that are priced right will sell.

$800k and Up

Location:   ZIP 30339
Price Range:   $800,000 – No Limit
SQFT Range:   0 – No Limit
Property Types:   Residential Detached – All Properties – All Properties
Bedrooms:   0 – No Limit
Full Baths:   0 – No Limit
Half Baths:   0 – No Limit

Notice the volume of sales in April (which were newer construction over $1M) and then last month.  I’ve pulled this over the past 2 years to show you the significance in the volume change.  There has been pent up demand for the higher end homes, but the remodels weren’t selling this spring and then, as of last month, they are moving.  This definitely sends us a message that buyers want Vinings enough to compromise or set their expectations a bit higher on price points. This is great news for us and also indicates a need for high end homes on the market in Vinings again.

As always, let me know if you might be interested in selling as I have buyers that are still looking!

Vinings (30339) real estate market update: June 2012

Interesting data again about what we’re seeing in the Vinings real estate market – the area of Atlanta in zip code 30339.

Inventory is down with sales on the rise, across all price points! At the $300,000 price point this reflects what I have personally seen in the market and continues the trend from last November. The higher price point in Vinings is finally having steady sales after next to nothing in 2011.  These statistics look more dramatic due to the low volume, but it is positive news!

Interesting data again about what we’re seeing in the Vinings real estate market – the area of Atlanta in zip code 30339.

Inventory is decreasing, but it appears the demand for homes in Vinings is towards the lower end and the inventory is towards the higher end.

Based on what is under contract currently we may see this trend change in the next month but at least we’re seeing a continued decrease in inventory.

Yankee By Birth, Southerner By Choice

Ok, ok, I don’t want my Pittsburgh friends to get mad at me.  This topic made me think while I was at the beach recently in New Jersey with a sorority sister from college.  I had such a great time and so enjoyed seeing her, my brother, sister-in-law and their children that it makes you think about where you live and wish that you could see them more often.

Twenty years ago via a job opportunity I moved to Atlanta, sight unseen.  I remember my first real estate agent.  I think I drove her crazy looking all over the city.  We settled on a rental on Moores Mill in Buckhead back in 1992.  It was a great house – (no longer there, torn down a few years ago) with a pool and large back yard. I’ve always had a dog, so a yard was important to me.

The house on Moores Mill was less expensive than my townhome in Washington D.C., where I had moved from. …a townhome was about all I could afford there. The housing values were definitely different in Atlanta and still are!

I would say the first two years were quite an adjustment and then I spent so much time traveling for work that I didn’t really get involved in things locally as much.   At first the thing I noticed in Atlanta was that people didn’t talk about national news here.  Maybe it was the circles I was traveling in at the time, but it was a big change for me coming from working across the street from the White House.

As my year-long rental came to close, my agent helped me find new construction on Log Cabin (in the neighborhood Chapel Hill of Vinings), and that was the first place that really started to feel like home.  We had neighborly Friday drop-bys, neighborhood holiday parties, and actually a group of us went on a ski trip together.  I’m still in contact with many of the group from Chapel Hill of Vinings.

The railroad tracks that run through Vinings, a unique four-square mile area in metro Atlanta, that I call home.

The railroad tracks that run through Vinings, a unique four-square mile area in metro Atlanta, that I call home.

As a matter of fact, it was the movement of this group of people from our “starter homes” to the bigger lots across the railroad tracks into Vinings that got me wanting to make the move as well.

So in 1998, I bought the lot/house that I now call home in Vinings.  I’ve been building and remodeling since it seems, with the last major work being done in 2005 -   landscaping and an addition of a pool.  I think I’m “done” now, but being in the real estate business has taught me that you are never “done” with your home.  The updates keep changing and of course there is always maintenance that I keep up with monthly through the help of a great handyman.

Vinings Village, an exceptional shopping resource in Vinings.

Vinings Village, an exceptional shopping resource in Vinings.

Now almost twenty years later from that first move to the South, our Vinings home is truly our home.  This is the only home my little boy has really known and the sidewalks, Vinings Village, the walking ability and the amount of long-time owners here makes the four square miles known as Vinings very unique.

I think many of the young families moving to Vinings now grew up here and have always considered it home and have finally reached the point where they can afford to step up to the bigger house as I did 13 years ago.  And I have a funny feeling that – God willing – we’ll be here another 13 years in the same house…
