2016’s year-to-date sales volume of $108,991,643 is up 30.2% over last year’s previous record pace, and up a huge 77.5% over 2014.

This year’s sales units of 288 are up 25.8% over 2015’s previous February record, and up 50.8% over 2014.

Moreover, 2016’s sales came in spite of there being 15.3% fewer new homes on the market year-to-date than at the same time last year, and 27.3% fewer than in 2014!

The Takeaway

The bottom line is that it’s a fantastic time to be a home seller in the Georgian Triangle.

Generally, prices are up nicely from 2014 and there is less competition among sellers, given that the 2015 listing inventory was down every month from 2014, and in 2016 is down another 15.3% from 2015.
