August 2018 Edition

With only a handful of properties available for consumers to peruse, you would expect this market to be stagnant. In reality, the Centerville GA real estate market continued to chug along as buyers and investors found homes to their liking in this market.

Homeowners who have been on the fence about joining this market should take this opportunity to get their home seen and sold. Currently, there is only 2 months of available homes to choose from. You will hear it repeated a few times in this homes are needed to keep buyer interest. Otherwise, they will move on to other areas in Houston County for their real estate needs.

As a top real estate agent in Centerville GA I am getting the word out to my buyers as soon as properties hit the market that meet their criteria. The sooner they get in to preview the property the better opportunity they have to make a decision about it. Any delay could be costly as there are plenty of other consumers who are also out looking for a home. Be prepared to act quickly.

Sale Pending Centerville Single Family Homes

This is the smallest real estate market in Houston County so do not let the numbers catch you off guard. However, the lack of inventory is starting to have an effect and new homes for sale are needed or buyers will find homes more to their liking in other middle GA communities. Of the 9 pending homes in this city, 1 is a distressed property.

Despite low availability, homeowners must ensure their house is ready for visits, updated as needed, and priced according to the current market conditions. Properties that are not in good shape will definitely sit, leaving owners scratching their heads wondering why other houses are selling and their home is not.

Centerville GA Single Family Homes Sold

There was a total of 10 home sales in Centerville GA last month. This represents the third highest number of monthly sales in the past year (the monthly average this past year is 8 closings). The average sale price for these homes was $143K+ and they took an average of 28 days to sell! The 12-month average for both of these categories is $157K+ and 52 days from listed to sold. As a comparison, during this same timeframe last year, the averages were $176K+ and 92 days.

The average days on the market was higher than expected this past month but it was good to finally see some of the older inventory finally exchange hands. However, it is a reminder to sellers that to be competitive, and ensure buyers take an interest in their home, they must market price the property. The sales price to list price ratio last month was 98.53%, which was slightly off the 12-month average of 98.66%.

The most expensive sale in Centerville real estate last month sold for $299K+. The lowest priced sale was $60K. One of the sales this past month was a distressed house. When distressed sales are present, they can have a slight impact on appraisal values in the affected neighborhoods for the remainder of the year.

What Can Centerville GA Residents Expect Regarding Real Estate In The Coming Months?

In this market you can expect plenty of competition. This could mean a bidding war if you are not ready to write an offer as soon as you decide the home is the property you have been looking for. Just remember, any delay could cost you the home as plenty of other consumers are hitting the pavement and out looking too!

The amount of inventory is worth monitoring for the next few months to determine if this market remains robust or starts to wane as cooler weather arrives. Time will tell if a host of fresh inventory hits the market and if buyers continue to find homes to their liking in the Centerville real estate market.
