Asheville and Buncombe County Trends
The chart below shows a visual look at the number of Residential units SOLD in Buncombe County in the last 12 months and takes a look back at those sales numbers to the same period one year ago, month by month.
Residential units for this report include Single Family units, Condos, Townhomes, and Mobile homes on owned land.
As you can see, the sales in Buncombe County had an increase in the last 12 consecutive months out of the last 12 compared to the number of sales exactly one year ago.
November showed some strength by having more (+42%) sales than November 2011. The upward trend is encouraging, but overall we are just now equaling the number of sales we had this time last year.
The number of sales was stronger the last of 2011 and have improved steadily in 2012. We had a more promising stabilization in the summer as our market struggles to gain ground without having prices drop much more than they have been dropping in the last 2 years, which has been a fairly regular downward pace.
