Haywood County, NC - 5-Year Residential Real Estate Sales Comparison - YTD as of 12/29/09.

Real Estate Agent

The 2009 Average Selling Price in Haywood County NC for residential real estate is inching closer to the Average Selling Price in 2004. The time it takes to sell a home (days on market) is higher than the previous 5 years due to (among other things) (1) overpriced homes/sellers in denial; (2) financing issues; (3) economy in general – JOBS.

If you want to sell your house (and you have the option to sell as opposed to being forced to sell), price it right. Testing the waters only wastes time and money, and your home is not immune to the obvious drop in values.

Keep your eye on the numbers…. things will change and eventually improve. But it is going to take a while longer to have an improvement in the housing market/home sales based on something legitimate – like more jobs – rather than MORE government loans to first-time home buyers.

Thanks for the rundown..average home prices there sooo much higher than Northern Maine. The lower the priced area, the easier the sales and less foreclosures, payment struggles.

Susie, great statistical info. JOBS is so important to each local economy. The total closed number is coming back for you but still not so much. Happy New Year to you. May 2010 be even better.

It is amazing to see how far less transactions there were last year as compared to the peak years in 2005 and 2006. Hopefully things are on the road to recovery.

Susie ~ Great Job on the Stats and I agree with you.  If you want to or need to sell you have to price it right.  Many agents do not counsel their clients on this issue we have and there for take the listing anyway because they are in the mindset of someone will list it and it might as well be me.  I am guilty of taking some listings myself (family,friends etc...)  but I let them know right up front, I will NOT promise anything.

Great Stats!
