If there is any good news at all concerning the Union County Lots and Acreage Real Estate Market, it is that inventory is down. The number of new properties listed by month is down a staggering 90%, a change of 192 fewer listings from this time last year. The total number of Properties For Sale in Blairsville is down 12%, a change of 219.
If that wasn’t enough good news, then how about the fact that the Median Sold Price by month was up as well, 16% with an average increase of $4,500. Not much, not near enough, but none the less a positive increase. The number of units sold however was down 38%, a decrease of 5 from February of last year. Also, the number of units that went under contract was down 29%, but only a decrease of 2 properties.
The average Days On Market (DOM) continues to increase, up 17% to 240 days. That also causes the Absorption Rate to increase as well. The average Month Supply of Inventory is up 21% to an incredible 299 months supply of Vacant Lots For Sale in Blairsville, GA. Let me do the math for you. That means that at current market conditions, and taking into consideration that we do not have any additional lots enter the Union County Real Estate Market, it would take almost 25 years to deplete our inventory. Wow! I have a funny feeling that these Bank Closures might cause this time frame to speed up just a little. What do you think?

As you can see from the above report, the Median Sales Price for Homes Sold in Blairsville, GA. continues to fall. There was a change of $21,525, down 14% from February of 2009. This is due mostly in part to the Short Sales and Foreclosures that continue to plague both our Residential Market, and even more so our Vacant Lots and Acreage Market. I will be sharing that report in a later post.
The good news is because of the amount of Short Sales and Foreclosures, the number of units SOLD is up 18%. Only a change of 3, but 18% sounds so much better. There was no change this month over a year ago for number of properties that went under contract. The number of homes under contract year over year in February was 20.
The number of new homes being listed in Union County is down 31%. We had 27 fewer residential listings hit the market in Blairsville Georgia in February 2010 over last year.

As you can imagine, 2009 presented many obstacles for those of us in the Real Estate and Mortgage Industry. It was a tough and challenging year no doubt, but presented some hope for the future. Although 2010 has not started with record breaking numbers, many are still predicting that this could be the year we finally see “The Bottom.”
My broker Robert Rogers, really does a great job leading our agents and guiding us to success.
