What’s going on with real estate in YOUR neighborhood?

I recently did a market report for the Mount Paran/Northside neighborhood – set forth below. I’m happy to do one for YOUR neighborhood or for your specific home if you’re interested. Just contact me at mwalser@kw.com.

The Atlanta real estate market in general is busting wide open.  Finally!  We are seeing properties which are well priced and in good condition move within days with multiple offers.  We have a lack of inventory, and lots of buyers.  We believe that the market will continue to improve.

But what does it look like specifically for OUR neighborhood, Mount Paran Northside?  Generally, our inventory is low, homes are moving faster (but primarily only if they are well priced and show well) and prices are rising.

I took the precise boundaries of the association for my search, and here is a snapshot of our current real estate picture:

Right now there are 41 properties actively listed on the market in Mt Paran-Northside ranging in price from $579,000 to $7,995,000.  There are twelve homes that are under contract.  The list prices for those homes ranged from $499,999 to $2,395,000.  Since the first of this year, three homes have sold – at $845,000 (on market for 95 days, sold for 99% of original list price), $1,650,000 (173 days on market, sold for 94% of original list price) and $2,060,000 (on market for 120 days, sold for 84% of original list price).

So, how does this compare to last year?  In all of last year, from 1/1/2012 through the end of December, 49 properties were sold, for an average of about four properties per month.  With fifteen homes either sold or under contract after the first two months of 2013, we are off to a good start!

Now let’s take a look at trends in MPNS since 2007.  It seems that we reached the bottom of our sales price slump in 2010 – things looked up in 2011 and hit lows again in 2012 – but we are clearly on an upward trend.  These graphs are a summary of ALL properties sold within our community boundaries from 2007 – present day.
